Mitsubishi Lancer Overview

The Lancer is an insubstantial and unimpressive compact sedan. It is fairly agile and has a decent ride, with balanced and secure handling, although cornering grip is limited. However, its 2.0-liter four-cylinder is rough, the CVT makes it moan, fuel economy is uncompetitive, and the car is sluggish from a stop. The cramped cabin is furnished with drab plastics and has subpar fit and finish, but the controls are simple to use. The sporty, AWD Ralliart is quick and agile but it's noisier and has a stiff ride. Its automated manual transmission is annoying during all but the most spirited drives.
