Mitsubishi extends Lancer range with high-specification 2.0-litre turbodiesel
Mitsubishi has announced a high value Juro special edition of its Lancer family hatchback.
Featuring a stack of standard equipment and a very keen price, the Mitsubishi Lancer Juro may tempt value-conscious buyers.
Lancer Juro: sat nav as standard
The standard specification list for this car is truly enormous.
Key items include a Kenwood satellite navigation system with touch screen display, Bluetooth, iPod connection and reversing camera, black leather upholstery, air conditioning, 16-inch alloys and cruise control.
And the Juro also comes fitted with an alarm/immobiliser, front, side, curtain and knee airbags, front fog lamps, electric heated door mirrors, steering wheel audio controls and a rear spoiler among other items.
Even the running costs shouldn’t be extortionate, since the Juro is powered by a 2.0-litre Di-D turbodiesel engine.
This produces 140bhp and 228lb ft of torque (pulling power), and is capable of seeing off 0-62mph in 9.5 seconds.
Emissions and economy aren’t class-leading at 163g/km CO2 and a claimed 45.6mpg. Although there are plenty of large, eco-minded cars from rival brands that can better these figures, none of them come with this level of standard equipment…
From just £14,999
…and none of them are available for the Mitsubishi Lancer Juro’s £14,999 on the road price tag.
Plus you can purchase a three-year inclusive service plan for £315, taking care of maintenance costs up front. The Juro is available in a choice of six colours.
True, the Mitsubishi look and image isn’t for everyone, the interior quality leaves quite a lot to be desired and refinement isn’t the best in class. But the Lancer hatchback handles competently and you can’t deny the value this special edition represents.
