If you're looking for a sleek, sharp-handling compact car with personality and a comprehensive warranty, you'll find the many Mitsubishi Lancers worth a look. If you want your morning commute
While the Lancer's sub-$17,000 starting price is attractive, value-driven buyers may favor the equally priced Hyundai Elantra and Kia Rio for their additional standard features and superior fuel e
With horsepower ratings that range from 148 to 291, engine choice obviously has a huge impact on the Lancer driving experience.

My next car will need to be an M3 otherwise anything else feels like a step down in performance!"

With that and a few bolt ons its easy to get into the 350-360 awhp range."
