Automobile maker Mitsubishi is well known all over the world for their production of accomplished, good looking sports cars. The Mitsubishi Lancer is the basically the oldest sedan in the market as the 2016 model is now entering its ninth year since the first model was released.
“The Lancer has the best resale value off any car in the market, ideal for the frugal money hacker” says Tim from Moneydialogue.com.
Mitsubishi Lancer 2016
This car represents good value for money as always with Mitsubishi as well as offering sporty driving manners. One can say that much hasn’t changed in this model as compared to its predecessor as it maintains most of the features from the previous version in this segment.
Exterior and Interior Design
Not much has changed regarding the exterior of this car as it remains the same four-door sedan traditional vehicle. Though its square, crisp shape still makes it ideal for its fanatics but to the displeasure of the critics. A less aggressive grille has been added, as well as a front end design for 2016 which somehow makes it look modern. It also features a front bolder front bumper with vertical LED daytime running lights as well as fog lamps. Also coming in are the heated power mirrors with integrated turn signals and 16-inch alloy rims.
The car’s interior is where you can expect to see more changes. As expected the packaging and the interior are still very impressive as the Lancer manufacturer makes smart use of the cabin dimensions as in the previous versions of the Lancer models. A standard USB connectivity has been added to the central console as well as a redesigned voice-activated audio system. It also has cellphone controls with Bluetooth technology. Adding to all these, the Mitsubishi Lancer 2016 will feature a color LCD placed in the active cluster and it also offers an automatic air condition control system.
Engine and Fuel Economy
The Mitsubishi Lancer 2016 which is a base front-wheel-drive is fitted with a 148-hp, 2.0-liter MIVEC four-cylinder engine with a five-speed manual gearbox as well as an optional (CVT) continuously variable transmission as it will seek to achieve maximum speed as well as maximum efficiency and excellent fuel economy. It returns 27 miles per gallon in the city and an original 35 miles per gallon when you are on the highway.
Apart from making smart use of the cabin, the automobile will be fitted with cloth seats to make it look all more impressive. The manufacturer has also added a new SEL trim level with a little bit more features.
