The Mitsubishi Lancer is a broad range of compact cars. The four-door sedans are roomy and comfortable, well-equipped with sporty, supportive seats. The new Sportback wagons offer functionality and fun at affordable prices. The best value is the Lancer ES, a very pleasant sedan with a smooth ride, good handling, and a nice interior. The Lancer O-Z Rally looks cool and adds sports appeal without blowing the budget. The Ralliart package turns the Lancer into a true sport compact car with its more powerful 2.4-liter MIVEC engine and sports suspension. The related but deviant black sheep of the family is the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, which joins the Subaru WRX in an exclusive class of street-legal cars that appeal to extreme enthusiasts.
