Mitsubishi is enjoying increasing sales on the Lancer. In September, overall year-over-year sales for the company grew by 5.3%, and for the Lancer in particular by 71%. The Lancer Evolution is the sports car cousin of the Lancer, and it saw an increase in sales of 45%.
The Lancer is a popular vehicle with those customers who have families and need a good, solid car that will easily support the needs of a family, without forcing them to move into a gas station. The Lancer gives all that, plus the safety that customers have come to expect from Mitsubishi.
The 2011 Lancer has 3 engine choices. Both the base DE and the ES models have a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine, the same that you can find in the Lancer Evolution and both get 152 horsepower. The GTS version of the 2011 Lancer offers a 2.4-liter, 4 cylinder engine that gives up to 168 horsepower. DE and ES models offer great gas mileage at 33 highway and 24 city, with a manual transmission. ES models with an automatic transmission give city mileage of up to 25 mpg.
For those who want more fun on the highway, there is the Lancer Ralliart. This turbocharged vehicle has a 2-0-liter, 4-cylinder engine with 237 horsepower and 253 pounds of torque as well as a range of engine speeds. The automatic transmission allows manual shifting without having to use a clutch, all-wheel drive, and gets a reasonable fuel economy for all that power at 25 mpg highway and 17 mpg in the city.
The Lancer is very affordable. Prices range from $14,995 - $27,895.
