Over the years, the Mitsubishi Lancer has earned a reputation as a spunky compact with a tuner personality. With available all-wheel drive and scorching performance from the top engine, it remains something unique in the marketplace.

What's New for 2014

The entry-level DE trim level has been dropped, leaving the ES as the price leader. All models above the ES get a touchscreen audio interface and a rearview camera as standard equipment. The available navigation system carries a larger display, and interior trim has been spruced up across the lineup.

Choosing Your Mitsubishi Lancer

The Lancer starts out peppy enough with 2-liter four-cylinder that’s good for 148 horsepower. The standard five-speed manual provides slightly better acceleration than the optional continuously variable transmission (CVT). The available 168-horsepower 2.4-liter makes the Lancer quick for this class. For all-out performance, Mitsubishi offers a 2-liter turbo with 237 horsepower that sends the Lancer from zero to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds.

What you get under the hood depends on the trim level:

ES

The new entry-level Lancer Comes with the base 2-liter and popular conveniences like automatic headlamps, power windows and locks, and a four-speaker sound system with CD. An Alloy Wheel Package adds alloy wheels and four-wheel disc brakes to CVT-equipped models. The Deluxe Package includes the above equipment, plus a sunroof, keyless start, enhanced interior trim and an upgraded sound system.

SE

A step up to the SE brings all-wheel drive and the 2.4-liter engine, plus heated front seats and side mirrors, chrome exterior accents, a rearview camera and a touchscreen audio system with HD and satellite radio. The optional Premium Package adds a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

GT

The GT keeps the SE’s 2.4-liter (but not its all-wheel drive) and adds performance upgrades such as 18-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, sport seats and paddle shifters for the CVT. An available Touring Package includes heated leather seats, xenon headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a sunroof and the Rockford Fosgate sound system.

The aggressive Ralliart packs the 2-liter turbo with an automated manual transmission, all-wheel drive, more aggressive suspension tuning, and sportier trim inside and out. The GT’s Touring Package is available here, too.

CarsDirect Tip

If you want sporty looks without spending a lot, order the ES with the available Exterior Package—you'll get the aggressive appearance of the Ralliart without the expense of its performance upgrades.
