2016 Mitsubishi Lancer
For 2016 the Mitsubishi Lancer lineup, we saw a lot of added value with increased levels of standard equipment. This compact 4-door rides, drives and handles better than the expectations of its segment average. It’s a sporty compact car whose ride handles the rough spots well. It’s stable and predictable and it navigates mountain curves and freeway off-ramps with responsive precision.
Inside is a new front center console and improved audio display, and outside is a new front fascia and chrome grille. The Mitsubishi Lancer is an exceptional choice for a shopper on a moderate budget looking for a lot of features. The 2016 Lancer is a fun-to-drive, compact, 4-door sedan that offers lots of value for the money, a generous assortment of standard safety features and an industry-leading warranty coverage offered by Mitsubishi – that provides a nice sense of comfort.
As part of its value message the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer offers a well-equipped package. Standard on the ES 2.0 model are fog lights, power and heated mirrors, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, 140-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio, Bluetooth, Fuse voice recognition, steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, power windows and door locks and a comprehensive array of safety features.
The Lancer has a great reputation for lots of passenger space in the class. Comfort in the back seat is unrivaled, delivering an almost midsize accommodation in a compact package. The trunk offers a maximum of 12.3 cu ft.; however, the Rockford Fosgate system's subwoofer does cut that to 11.8 cu ft…priorities??
The ES 2.4, SE 2.4 and SEL 2.4 models include standard the electronically controlled all-wheel drive, which Mitsubishi calls All-Wheel Control, for exemplary traction no matter what the weather brings. It includes a mode selector for front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive "Auto" or all-wheel-drive "Lock," to maintain optimum traction in all kinds of weather or driving conditions.
The three middle trim levels, ES 2.4, SE 2.4 and SEL 2.4, all have the 2.4-liter engine, continuously variable transmission and All-Wheel Control electronically controlled all-wheel drive. Moving up through the trims adds automatic on/off headlights, rain-sensing wipers, more audio system speakers, leather and other convenience items.
Those looking for the best in-car audio in a compact sedan will be impressed by the 2016 Lancer’s 9-speaker, 710-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system; it’s standard on the GT 2.4 and optional, as part of the Sun and Sound Package, on the ES 2.0 with CVT.
The front-wheel-drive Lancer ES comes standard with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission is a 5-speed manual, returning EPA estimates of 24 miles per gallon in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. A CVT is optional.
Both the SE and SEL have all-wheel drive and the CVT as standard, along with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 168 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque. When the lower ES level is specified with this larger engine, it also receives the all-wheel drive/CVT combination. Fuel consumption here is 23 mpg city/31 mpg hwy.
