Mitsubishi’s most well known Lancer model is undoubtedly the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. In addition to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, Mitsubishi also produces the Lancer Ralliart. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo is available only in sedan form, but the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart comes in sedan or Sportback (hatchback) form. While the Lancer Ralliart claims the “Sportback” body type, do not be mistaken that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo is the sportier and more powerful model of the two. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo offers a high performance powertrain with a 2.0 liter turbocharged V4 engine that produces 291 horsepower. The Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart houses a 2.0 liter engine producing 237 horsepower.
Both Lancers are available with a five speed manual transmission or six speed automatic. Both the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo and Ralliart offer Super All-Wheel Control, as well as Active Center Differential. Handling in both models is quick and responsive, making the Mitsubishi Lancer feel like a sports car rather than a sedan.
Mitsubishi upgraded the interior of the 2012 Lancer to now offer a gloss black instrument panel trim, along with providing ample cargo space and legroom in the rear of the car. The 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer offers a 60 / 40 split rear seatback that further increases cargo space. Standard features included on all Mitsubishi Lancer models include automatic climate control, leather trim, Bluetooth capabilities, hands free entry system, trip computer and aluminum pedals. Many other options for upgrades are also available for both Mitsubishi Lancer models. The Lancer’s fuel economy is rated at 25 miles per gallon in the city and 34 miles per gallon on the highway, on average.
The 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer offers unbeatable value for the features and amenities it delivers. The 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer feels like a sports car, and can compete with others in the sports car category.
