The Mitsubishi Lancer is best known when it's in high performance Evo guise, but these models usually overshadow the standard model. In fact the normal Lancer is a good family car that comes well equipped, has decent rear passenger space and is good to drive too.

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

The Mitsubishi Lancer is best known when it's in high performance Evo guise, but these models usually overshadow the standard model. In fact the normal Lancer is a good family car that comes well equipped, has decent rear passenger space and is good to drive too. The styling echoes the Evo X with an aggressive nose and a rear spoiler but it is let down inside with a drab and slightly dated interior which lacks finesse.

Still the Lancer does come well equipped and is available with a strong diesel engine, borrowed from Volkswagen. The saloon bodystyle isn't ideal for practicality, but certainly looks neater than the ungainly Sportback variant.

What owners say...

 Being the saloon version it has a large boot and aces to all seats is good thanks to wide opening - but cheap feeling easily dentable - doors.

 Large boot and plenty of leg room. Its a very comfortable car to be in.
