Additional Safety Features for Mitsubishi's Lancer Sedan and Hatch

Adelaide, Australia (PressExposure) January 07, 2010 -- Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) has revealed additional safety specifications for its popular Lancer small car for 2010. All Lancer sedans and hatches, including entry level ES variants, will now come standard with side and curtain airbags.

This additional safety equipment means that the Lancer [] now offers more occupant protection features than any of its direct competitors – with seven airbags, including driver and passenger SRS airbags, side and curtain airbags, and driver knee airbag standard on every model.

In addition, all Lancer sedans and hatches come standard with Mitsubishi’s acclaimed RISE (reinforced impact safety evolution) body, stability control, traction control, ABS braking with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution and seatbelt load limiters and pretensions.

Robert McEniry, president and chief executive officer of MMAL, said the news on Lancer "just keeps getting better and better."

"2009 was a standout year for Lancer [], and it recorded the best-ever result with more than 21,000 vehicles sold," McEniry said.

"And, now, with side and curtain airbags fitted as standard to each and every vehicle in the range, Lancer [] is guaranteed a great start in 2010."
