Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The Lancer drives well and has a sportier feel than many other small compacts. It offers a neat, responsive driving experience, while the steering is pleasantly direct.

The 2.0-liter engine is perky at lower speeds with the 5-speed manual, but it strains with the CVT.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

For the most part, the Lancer looks the same as it did a decade ago. It’s crisp, square and traditional, in a time compacts are waving fastback lines chasing fuel mileage.

Last year the Lancer got a new front end that actually backed off some from the boy-racer look; the grille openings are split above and below the bumper, making the nose more understated and mature. giving it a more adult look.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

The cabin clearly shows its age, despite a new center console last year, with its hard and hollow plastic surfaces. The glossy black trim is okay, and the cloth upholstery is nice, but refinement is sorely lacking compared to the competition; the design, materials, and fit and finish are beneath the level of Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, and Honda Civic.

And on the road, it’s just plain noisy, with wind noise whirring over the roar of the engine and whine of the CVT.

On the upside, the Lancer makes smart use of its cabin dimensions, as packaging and interior space are both impressive.


New Car Test Drive

The Mitsubishi Lancer offers value when compared against its rivals. It’s a dated product, but the basic structure here is very good. The 2.4-liter engine is okay if a bit thirsty, and the CVT is boring. The 2.0-liter with the manual gearbox doesn’t save enough to be worth it. The traditional styling still holds up, although the cabin has cheap materials and is noisy.
