2013 Mitsubishi Lancer – Review

The car is sporty yet efficient. The 2013 Lancer is masked as a four-door sedan and impresses us with its wonderful trim options and outstanding handling the car is available as a hatchback with four engines and three different transmissions. This car is better then Mitsubishi Lancer Evo The best trim level offers all-wheel drive and fuel economy for a standard Lancer is low as 17 city and 22 highway.
The car is five-seats and has enough front and rear space. However, according to reviewers the cabin’s design is quite boring and materials are cheap. The car lacks standard features like air conditioning, Bluetooth and a USB port.

Outlook and Design

The front of this Mitsubishi Lancer is loaded with air intakes and outlets and keeps the engine cool. The designing of the exterior is aggressive overall. The exterior also has exhaust pipes and diffuser that surrounds the pipes and help to clean up the airflow. Heat extractors give the ride a purposeful look.


Get inside this sporty and you will find yourself sitting on RECARO racing seats, they keep you safe from being thrashed. However they are not comfortable and you will get tired quickly.

The steering wheel is leather covered and the big tachometer is placed near the steering wheel. The pedals contain aluminum coat and keep your feet from slipping off. The materials used in the interior is cheap and not worth talking about.

Standard features include Leather-wrapped steering, heater floor ducts, air filtration, shift knob (leather wrapped), parking brake, IP meters, LCD display (multi information), Chrome inner door handle, aluminum scuff plate, adjustable driver’s seat, rear seat headrests, front cup holder, assist grips, aluminum sport pedals, key illumination, map lamps, cabin lamps,

Under the hood

The car delivers 291 horsepower and that’s not too cool man! However it hits from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and that’s cool! Isn’t it? The engine is mated with a five speed manual, and its close-ratio unit (the transmission). The fuel economy is poor and that’s 17 city and 23 mph highway.
