INVECS III 6-speed CVT with Sport Mode
Lovers of automatics will be very happy with the INVECS III 6-speed CVT transmission with Sport Mode. It sounds hi-tech, which it is. But to drive, it’s simple as. Basically, CVT uses belts instead of cogs. There are no actual ‘gear changes’ just a seamless delivery of power, and plenty of it.
In Sport Mode, you can treat it like a manual and select the gears yourself.
Real road holding
The amount of rally-bred technology that goes into Lancer might seem like overkill. But as you turn into a good sharp corner, or swerve to avoid a sudden hazard, you’ll see why we went to all the trouble. Throughout the range, Lancer’s handling is firm, confident and predicable. It’s also fun, because we think life should be.
Active Stability Control (ASC)
Recently, there has been increasing demand for this feature, which is a very good thing. ASC comes into play in tough or sudden cornering situations and reduces the chance of over- or under-steer by controlling engine power and brakeforce. What it means for driver and passengers is a tighter and much safer handling experience.
Multi-mode Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
This system lets you steer away from danger while you brake hard. The EBD system senses the vehicle attitude, even on wet uneven surfaces and sends the optimal amount of brakeforce to each wheel.
Active Traction Control (ATC)
This system stops driving wheels from losing traction and stepping out of line. It applies the brakes to the wheel that’s slipping and sends power to the other. It means you can stay on the route through the corner you intended.
