2015 Mitsubishi Lancer OVERVIEW

The Mitsubishi Lancer has a pair of versions; one is the wild and crazy Evolution model, and the other is the more timid base model. The latter has been a part of the U.S. lineup since 2008 and has seen a pair of generations. The second launched in 2008, and included a new "Shark Nose" front fascia; in its second year on the market gained a turbocharged Ralliart version.

What's New for 2015

Since its debut in 2008, the second-generation Lancer has remained relatively unchanged with the exception of few small modifications. For 2015, this theme continues. New features for 2015 include the Value Package for the ES model, the Sun and Sound Package for the GT with a CVT, a slew of new standard features on the SE trim, and new contrast stitching inside the GT trim's cabin.

Choosing Your Mitsubishi Lancer

Choosing the Lancer that fits your needs depends on what you want from it -- this is a far-reaching model that covers all the bases. The first step is figuring out what drivetrain you need, as there are three engines and two transmission to choose from, as well as two models with all-wheel drive. If fuel economy is tops, then opt for the base 2-liter or 2.4-liter. But if you're looking for more pep without bumping to the Lancer Evo, then the turbocharged 2-liter may be the route to take.

After you've picked the drivetrain, the rest falls into place rather simply, as each drivetrain falls into a single trim level. Altogether, the Lancer has four:

Lancer ES

The ES is the base setup for the Lancer, and it carries a 2-liter engine with 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. Despite being the entry-level version of Mitsubishi's small sedan, it comes decently equipped. Standard features include a four-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with 140 watts; electric power steering for smooth turning and less strain on the engine; heated side-view mirrors for those living in cooler climates; automatic headlights; power windows, door locks and folding mirrors; tilt steering to help the driver find the perfect seating position; and remote keyless entry. The ES comes standard with a five-speed manual and carries a base price of $17,395 while the optional CVT adds $900 to the tab.

Lancer SE AWC

The SE AWC builds upon the ES model with more features, but it also adds all-wheel drive (dubbed All Wheel Control, or AWC by Mitsubishi) and a 2.4-liter engine that bumps power to 168 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque. Other standard features include high-contrast gauges, a FUSE hands-free system, a 6.1-inch touchscreen audio system with six speakers, HD radio and SiriusXM, and a rearview camera, Style-wise, the exterior gains a color-keyed bumper, fog lights, chrome trim on door handles, soft-touch upper door trim, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a chrome grille and rear badge surround. The SE is only available with a CVT, and it bases at $20,995.

Lancer GT

The Lancer GT is essentially a sportier version of the SE AWC. Like the SE AWC, the GT comes with the peppier 2.4-liter engine, but it is available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT. Other features the GT adds to the base ES package include 18-inch wheels for a stylish and sporty look; a 6.1-inch touchscreen audio system with six speakers, HD radio and SiriusXM; automatic climate control; FAST-key for easy access to the car; white contrast stitching for a more premium look and feel; a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob; sport bucket seats that hold the driver and passenger snugly; a sport-tuned suspension; a Ralliart front fascia and rear spoiler for added outward sportiness; and a set of Sportronic shifter paddles with the CVT. In its base format with the six-speed manual, the Lancer GT runs $20,595, while the CVT adds $1,000 to the price.

Lancer Ralliart

Save for the incredibly fast Lancer Evolution, the Ralliart is the fastest of the Lancers, thanks to a turbocharged 2-liter engine that produces 237 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque and the TC-SST automated-manual transmission. On top of the engine and transmission, the Ralliart's performance is further enhanced by its standard All Wheel Control system with an active center differential. The Ralliart builds on the GT trim level with premium fabric seating, a sport-type steering wheel, hill start assist to avoid rollback when starting on an incline, a Rockford Fosgate audio system, an auto-dimming mirror for added convenience at nighttime, automatic headlights, a dual exhaust with chrome finishers, HID headlights that give great visibility at night, an aluminum hood for reduced weight, and chrome lower door molding for a sportier look. The Ralliart trim level shoots the Lancer's base price to $29,495.

CarsDirect Tip

We think the best Lancer values are the mid-range SE AWC and GT. The Ralliart is priced within punching distance of the Evolution, and we'd recommend paying the extra money for far superior performance.
