Of the dozen different mainstream compact cars from which to choose, the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer is the oldest, by far. Its current generation dates back a decade, and while some updates have been made over that span, the Lancer lags rivals like the Honda Civic. Among its few bright spots are available all-wheel drive and a long warranty.
New Features and Revisions
The 2017 Lancer gains a standard rearview camera and display audio system, while higher trims receive 18-inch wheels. The front-drive-only Lancer GT is no longer offered, the latest trim to exit the Lancer lineup.
