The current SouEast-Mitsubishi Lancer, looking much older than the V3. Price starts at 76.800 yuan and ends at 86.800 yuan. Lone engine is a 1.6 liter four-cylinder petrol with 100hp and 136nm, mated to a 5-speed manual.


A very sporty dash with a rally-style steering wheel. SouEast knows how the use the Lancer EVO heritage…


Check that wing! Sadly, the engine doesn’t really match up. Power comes from an ancient Mitsubishi-sourced four-cylinder 1.5 liter petrol engine with 118hp and 143nm, mated to a five-speed manual or a CVT. This is exactly the same engine that was used in the outgoing V3. Price starts at 56.900 yuan and ends at 67.900 yuan, and that is slightly cheaper than before.


A ColorFul car.


The old 1.5.


But a big wing makes every car look young.
