Spec and price changes for realigned Carisma

MITSUBISHI has announced changes for its upper-medium sector Carisma, with increased specification and prices, along with exterior and interior modifications. The manufacturer claims the price rise is outweighed by increases in specification, which it says amounts to an average 2.9% drop in price in real terms.

The new range, which goes on sale on Monday (August 2), has been cut from 30 to 11 variants. Four new specification levels have been introduced - Classic, Equippe, Sport and Elegance, replacing the current GL, GLX and GLS models and there is now a four-door saloon option. Exterior changes give the front of the car a sharper look while the rear becomes more rounded. Modifications include a new grille, headlights and indicators, and new bonnet line. Inside, there is a new dashboard, two-tone trim fabrics, improved storage and lockable rear seats to secure boot stored items.

On-the-road prices begin at £12,995 for the 1.6i 5dr manual; 1.6 Classic 4/5dr manual £13,995; 1.9 TD Classic 5dr manual £14,695; 1.6 Equippe 4/5dr manual £15,225, automatic £16,205; 1.8 GDI Equippe 4/5dr manual £15,995, automatic £16,905; 1.9 TD Equippe 5dr manual £15,995; 1.8 GDI Sport 5dr manual £16,495; 1.8 GDI Elegance 5dr manual £17,995, automatic £18,945.
