Often we talk about cultcar. They are cars that, for one reason or another, have fallen in love with millions of people around the world. Normally you don’t have to be a fast vehicle in circuit, but that in the majority of cases are relatively affordable cars that for some reason come into the hearts of the most passionate in the world of the motor. One of those models could be the Honda Civic, the Subaru Impreza, the Volkswagen Golf or the Mitsubishi Lancer.
Mitsubishi has spent years in a tough “fight” with Subaru. Both brands have competed in many disciplines of Motorsport, both in competitions for amateurs as professionals, with two similar models, the same style. We refer to the Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Lancer. Unfortunately, the costs of these vehicles today are not acceptable for any and European competition has brought products as fast as they did, although practically orphans of sensations.
Sales of these cars to go “section” as well as ecological restrictions complicate the tasks to manufacturers. But not only we refer to the highest performance versions, also its most rational variants. They are not models who live of the large volume of sales, at least in these days where the SUV does not stop grow and grow. Precisely Mitsubishi has planned a strong bet in this segment which will soon incorporate a new Member. A segment that knows and is being given quite well with the Mitsubishi ASX and Outlander.
Market demand not already sedans of three volumes as little more than one decade ago, and those who demand it directly will be the three Premium brands. This situation has strongly hurt to generalist brands and low volume, which have been as to stay alive is must enter full fashion, the SUV segment, and sacrifice as legendary as the Mitsubishi Lancer models. In this way, the legendary Lancer will be replaced by a new crossover. Apparently having informed the Japanese brand, Mitsubishi officials have announced that the production will end in August.
