The Good The Mitsubishi Lancer GTS is among the most tech-equipped cars available at its price, offering touch screen navigation, Bluetooth, and a watt audio system with a 30GB hard drive.

The biggest increase is in width, which is up 2. The previous Lancer was already one of the longest vehicles in the segment at The result is an interior that's about the same size as its predecessor, which was already one of the roomiest.
The Lancer is Mitsubishi's smallest sedan and lowest-priced car in the U. The automaker is selling the Mitsubishi Lancer not as an economy car but as a "compact sport sedan," and its appearance and equipment--especially for the top GTS model--take a decidedly sporty direction. The high-performance Evolution model is based on the Lancer, but it's covered in a separate review.
