The Megane, in its most aggressive RS version, has been chosen as the donor for the new 2022 Mitsubishi Lancer.

It is interesting that formally the Japanese version will be a copy, but it will enter the market a little earlier, since it is going to be designed on the basis of the new fourth generation Megane RS.

Subsequently, it is planned to release versions of «civil» — with less powerful engines, because the current Megan has the most powerful «turbo four» produces 300 liters. with., and the car of the next generation, engineers promise to add at least 30 more «horses».

This model risked not making it to its 50th anniversary in 2023, but it seems that it will be by this time that a version of the new 11th generation car will be ready, which will open another chapter in the history of Mitsubishi Lancer.

The release of these cars was suspended in 2017, when the Japanese company Mitsubishi, under pressure from financial problems, was forced not only to abandon the production of sedans, but also to transfer part of the shares to the Renault-Nissan concern.

The management of the new parent company helped to revive the model, however, as is usual in modern automotive industry, it was decided to «attach» Lancer to another Renault Megane car, actually releasing its technical «twin».

As for the appearance of the new Mitsubishi Lancer in 2022, many major automotive publications have already begun to fantasize about the new exterior of the «Japanese», exercising in rearranging the body of the current Megan.

Photos of the sedan’s appearance, claiming to be real spyware, have appeared in China, where this model may be certified earlier than in other countries.

Judging by the images, the actual French Megane is clearly visible in the exterior of the car, but these cars will definitely differ not only in the design of the front end.

Specifications and filling

The main expected difference between the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 11 from the Megan RS is the proprietary Japanese all-wheel drive S-AWC transmission, equipped with electronically controlled differentials.

It should give the car a sporty character, which will definitely require specific suspension settings.

Together, this can offer a car with special handling, which will make it possible to speak of the Lancer as a unique model.

As for the characteristics of the engine, the «Japanese» will get the same engine that will receive the new Megane RS.

Questions are only raised by the hybrid superstructure, which has long been promised to the «Frenchman» of the next generation.

Release date and start of sales in Russia

The release of the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 11 may begin in 2022-2023, but since this model is not among the priorities for the manufacturer at the present time, the timing is at risk of shifting.

Also, much will depend on the pace of development of the new version of Megan, and the concern may decide that the French version should still enter the market first.

In the meantime, the only place where the classic Mitsubishi Lancer is available is China: they sell tenth generation cars there after a slight restyling.

The price in terms of rubles is from 928 to 1,636 thousand.
