The only changes to the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer line are a few additions to the all-wheel-drive SE model, including Thule plug-in roof-carrier accommodation, new-design 16-inch alloy wheels and an available Premium Package with sunroof, Rockford Fosgate audio system and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift lever.
For 2012, Mitsubishi introduces a new SE trim with standard all-wheel drive (AWD), heated seats and outside mirrors, a continuously variable automatic transmission, and the GT model's more powerful 2.4-liter engine. Additionally, the Lancer Sportback no longer offers a manual transmission and drops the performance-based Ralliart edition from the lineup.
Changes for 2010 include new tail lamps, a short pole antenna and a larger side air dam design, as well as the addition of electronic stability control on all models. The GTS trim receives a new high-contrast multi-color LCD display, leather-wrapped parking brake and new interior chrome accents.
The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer compact sedan may not be the most cutting-edge car in its class, but it does offer a number of attractive features that deserve the attention of anyone shopping for a Honda Civic, Ford Focus or Subaru Impreza. From its aggressive nose to its rally-inspired, turbocharged engine options, the Mitsubishi Lancer offers one of the most varied model ranges in the business. The affordable and efficient ES trim stands up well to models like the Nissan Sentra, while the turbocharged Ralliart can give the Volkswagen GTI and Ford Focus a run for their money. And Subaru's performance-bred WRX doesn't fear many other cars except when an all-wheel-drive (AWD) Lancer Evolution pops up in its rearview mirror.
