2016 Mitsubishi Lancer
The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer is among a small group of compact sedans that come with a lot of fun built in! There are tweaks to the front end styling for 2016 and some additions include standard stability control, anti-lock brakes, seven airbags and some good-looking LED running lights. The whole Lancer lineup now has disc brakes on each wheel. The Lancer body has been reinforced at key points to resist torsion and to keep everything level and smooth when rounding curves and navigating bumpy roads.The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer is among a small group of compact sedans that come with a lot of fun built in!

The Lancer tends to be taller than most compacts, but it’s also sportier than the average, particularly with the GT’s precisely tuned suspension. The Lancer looks sharp and has a lot of passenger space for the class; just take a look at the surprisingly generous rear-seat leg- and headroom.
Inside you’ll find all the seats are firm and supportive, the rear seats are undeniably adult-friendly. Since the Lancer has a taller silhouette than others in the class, it has a roomier feel and more actual headroom, delivering near-midsize accommodations in a compact sedan! The Lancer also provides a spacious, convenient cargo area with unrivaled capacity.
The 2016 Lancer ES interior comes with newly enhanced cloth upholstery, full power accessories, cruise control, and a tilt-only steering wheel, Bluetooth hands-free calling, and a 140-watt audio system with 4 speakers and a USB port. The fully automatic climate control system extends to both front and rear seats. For ordinary driving, the ride experience is sophisticated with much less road noise than others in the segment.
With revisions to the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), the Lancer offers a new level of driving pleasure with its powerful automatic transmission which eliminates lag on gear changes.
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 is rated 23 mpg city/31 mpg hwy. The SE adds standard heated front seats, a rear-view camera, satellite radio, and 6 speakers, while the newly minted SEL boasts leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and upgraded interior accents. The performance-oriented GT features upgraded climate control and Rockford Fosgate premium audio with 750 watts and 9 Surround Sound speakers.
It’s a return to front-wheel drive and a standard-issue 5-speed manual for the GT model, but now with the 2.4-liter engine, with the optional CVT (which also comes with shift paddles and simulated gears). 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.
Options across the Lancer lineup include remote engine start, LED interior lighting, and upgraded interior accent materials. Higher trims also offer GPS navigation. Engaging handling (especially in the GT), edgy styling, adult-friendly back seat, plenty of available technology and lots of options in the package make shopping for your special Lancer lots of fun!
