For what it' worth, these are not really a 'new' Lancer per se, it's just the latest Evolution of the old platform (in other words CZ Lancer) for the S.E. Asia and Chinese market. In Japan the old Galant is still being sold with just a very minor facelift (remember it was never sold as a Lancer here).
As I mentioned in posts a couple of years back, the 'real' new Lancer was / is due for release this year however after the Nissan hostile take over who knows WTF what is going on. The only thing that has remained consistent seems to be the further development of the SUV platform.
I've been out of the loop lately but hopefully the model they were going to release hasn't been binned... it was looking good, and importantly was a similar size to the CP Lancers.
A few minor design hints have obviously been used from this on the Asian Lancer.
I've actually had these images for years. Darin vetoed me posting them after we back and forthed about it, but it probably doesn't matter now
Food for thought there Anthony :smthumbup:smthumbup.....I personally think Mitsubishi have lost the plot :lol:....They have forgotton the things that made their range of cars popular :thumbdown.....It would be nice to see a new Evo one day
