Used Mitsubishi Lancer Saloon (2005 - 2008) Review

Buyers looking for an affordable and well-equipped saloon should take a look at Mitsubishi Lancer. Also available as an estate, it’s good to drive and reliable, sharing its profile with the unmistakable EVO IX – Mitsubishi’s super-saloon - and the rear spoiler nods towards the Lancer’s sporty heritage.

Buyers looking for an affordable and well-equipped saloon should take a look at Mitsubishi Lancer. Also available as an estate, it’s good to drive and reliable, sharing its profile with the unmistakable EVO IX – Mitsubishi’s super-saloon - and the rear spoiler nods towards the Lancer’s sporty heritage. Although Lancer isn’t particularly stimulating and the choice of trim and engine options are restricted – only a 1.6 or 2.0-litre petrol to choose from - it’s ideal for families in need of a high value, practical saloon.

What owners say...

 Not too big or small. Boot space has never let me down.

 Plenty of leg room for all seats, loads of storage, and all comfort.

 The boot space is a bonus, although some may argue its not as practical as a hatchback, however your luggage is more secure if the car gets broken into.
