Mitsubishi Lancer Earns Top Safety Pick From Insurance Institute

Cypress, Calif. — The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety on 09/29/2008 awarded its “Top Safety Pick” to the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer*, after the compact sedan earned the top rating in all three of the Institute’s crashworthiness evaluations.

“Lancer combines excellent styling, performance, fuel efficiency and value with outstanding occupant safety. With such great design elements and feature content, the new Lancer is ready to assume a leadership position in the compact segment,” said EVP of Sales and Marketing Dan Kuhnert. “We’re extremely pleased that the IIHS has recognized Lancer in this way, and confirmed our commitment to safety.”

The new 2009 Lancer Ralliart and Lancer GTS feature the same safety architecture as the 2008 model while adding performance upgrades. The Lancer GTS is powered by a 168 horsepower, 2.4-liter engine, while the new Ralliart model is equipped with all-wheel-drive and a turbocharged 2.0 liter engine that produces 237 horsepower. The basic Lancer architecture serves as the basis for the Outlander crossover SUV, which also received a “Top Safety Pick” rating from IIHS.
