For 2016 the Lancer lineup adds value, with increased levels of standard equipment. Inside is a new front center console and improved audio display, and outside is a new front fascia and chrome grille. Enthusiasts will shed tears, as the awesomely fast Evo model did not make it into 2016.
For 2015, the Lancer Sportback is no more, but the good news is the rest of the line receives a number of new standard features. All 2015 Lancer sedans now come with heated side mirrors, while the SE model gains hands-free phone connectivity, fog lights and new 16-inch wheels. The Lancer Ralliart gains HID headlights, Rockford-Fosgate audio and rain-sensing wipers.
About Mitsubishi Lancer
The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer is a thoroughly rational 4-door compact sedan, with multiple trim levels, two engine choices, ample features, good driving dynamics, availability of all-wheel drive (AWD), noteworthy value for the money and a great warranty. Not stunningly outstanding, except for its perfectly logical appeal, buyers looking for just such traits will find the Lancer fills the bill. The five trim levels – ES 2.0, ES 2.4, SE 2.4, SEL 2.4 and GT 2.4 – include a generous complement of standard equipment, numerous commendable safety features and attractive pricing. There is also a fully transferable 5-year/60,000-mile new-vehicle warranty; a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty; a 7-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion warranty; and 5-year/unlimited-miles roadside assistance – coverage that, Mitsubishi says, leads the industry.
