2016 Mitsubishi Lancer OVERVIEW

Mitsubishi's venerable compact sedan receives a major boost in equipment this year that's bound to resonate with value-conscious shoppers. As always, what really sets the Lancer apart from most competitors is the availability of all-wheel drive.

What's New for 2016

All models receive new front-end styling with LED running lights, voice controls for the sound system, an updated center console, and improvements to the available automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is now available on the base model, which carries more standard equipment than before. An upmarket SEL trim level debuts, while the turbocharged Ralliart leaves the lineup.

Choosing Your Mitsubishi Lancer

The Lancer starts out with a 2-liter four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower, matched to a five-speed manual transmission or optional continuously variable automatic (CVT). However, most models are powered a 2.4-liter four-cylinder good for 168 horsepower, which can be paired with the CVT and all-wheel drive. Inside, the Lancer wins points for its spacious rear accommodations and standard split-folding backseat.

The Lancer is available in four trim levels: base ES, SE and SEL (with standard all-wheel drive), and sporty GT:


Comes standard with the 2-liter engine and manual transmission or optional CVT. Upgrading to the more powerful 2.4-liter automatically gets you the CVT and all-wheel drive. Other features include automatic climate control, heated side mirrors, foglamps, a four-speaker sound system with voice controls, and 16-inch alloy wheels.


Gets the 2.4-liter/CVT/all-wheel drive setup as standard, along with heated front seats, keyless ignition, a rearview camera, an infotainment touchscreen, two-tone wheels, and a six-speaker sound system with HD and satellite radio.


Builds on the SE with automatic headlamps and wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an upgraded interior with leather seating and trim.


Adds a sport-tuned suspension, a sunroof, a rear spoiler, and a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system. The GT comes only with the 2.4-liter engine and front-wheel drive, although both the manual and CVT transmission are available (the latter with paddle shifters).

All trim levels are eligible for a navigation system, LED foglamps, and rear parking sensors. The ES can get a Sun and Sound package with a sunroof, a rearview camera, and the Rockford Fosgate system.

CarsDirect Tip

When it comes to features for the price, the new SEL may be impossible to beat. We can't think of another car that gives you all-wheel drive and a leather interior for less money.
