    2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Mitsubishi Lancer

    • Whether you just want a car that looks and handles sharper than the average econobox or you need something speedy enough to embarrass genuine sports cars, the Lancer lineup likely has something with your name on it.

      - Edmunds.com
    • As Mitsubishi's smallest and most affordable vehicle in the U.S. market, the Lancer stands out from the crowd of low-priced sedans for two main reasons: First, its resemblance to the much more expensive Lancer Evolution and Ralliart models...somehow earns it a little more street cred than, say, a Corolla.

    What reviewers liked least about the Mitsubishi Lancer

    • Noise and ride comfort could be deal-breakers....Also bringing a downmarket feel to the Lancer is the collection of decidedly basic materials used in the cabin - including lots of hard plastic.

    • Optional leather upholstery takes the interior ambiance up a notch, but no one will feel like they're living large.

    Mitsubishi Lancer Comparisons

    • Even though the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer is in the same segment as mainstream economy cars like the Honda Civic, it doesn't quite match them in the areas of interior quality, base engine refinement, fuel economy and reputation.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Close Lancer rivals include the Subaru Impreza and the sporty Mazda 3, which likewise offer high-performance variants in the form of the WRX and Mazdaspeed 3, respectively. The Impreza features standard all-wheel drive versus the Lancer's Ralliart-only AWD system, while the Mazda boasts a nicer interior; moreover, both competitors have superior base engines. But the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer still has a lot going for it, especially in GTS or Ralliart trim.

    • Don't go thinking, 'Yeah, it's like an Evo but cheaper'.
