The 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer is a versatile, compact sedan that offers a variety of trim levels that run the gamut from affordable to well-optioned all-wheel drive models.

All in all, the Lancer is offered in four varieities: ES, SE (which offers AWD), GT, and the turbocharged AWD Ralliart.

Up front, the 2014 Lancer features an aggressive front grille and the Ralliart trim takes that look further with a larger opening and a scoop in its aluminum hood. 16-inch steel wheels are standard with 18-inch rims optional. Power windows, folding mirrors and auto-off headlamps are also standard. Xenon high-intensity discharge headlights are available on GT and Ralliart and there’s an optional rear wing which gives the Lancer a sportier appearance.

The ES model is the only one to get the base engine, a 148-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission or a CVT. The front-drive GT and AWD SE feature a more powerful, 168-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder making 167 pounds feet of torque. That engine is mated to a five-speed manual or CVT in the GT, while the SE only offers the CVT. The AWD Ralliart steps things up with a 237-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 253 pounds feet of torque and works with a six-speed, dual-clutch auto-manual gearbox.

The best fuel economy is achieved in the ED with the five-speed manual, 26/34 mpg on the highway (switch to the CVT and it loses 1 city mpg). The GT’s 2.4-liter with the CVT gets 23/30 mpg city/highway, while the five-speed returns 22/31 mpg city/highway. The turbo-powered AWD Ralliart’s 2.0-liter engine and six-speed gearbox achieve 18 mpg/city and 25 mpg/highway. The SE’s 2.4-liter, CVT combo checks in with 22/29 city/highway. Unfortunately, all of these numbers lag behind the segment leaders like the Honda Civic and the Mazda3.

Inside, the Lancer offers standard air conditioning and 60/40 split folding rear seat, odor-absorbing headliner, and a tilt steering wheel. More premium features are optional on higher trim levels, such as a navigation system with rearview camera, heated front seats with leather upholstery, and chrome accents. The Ralliart gets a few of its own unique cues, including a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Satellite radio, USB port, and hands-free mobile phone connectivity are also available.

Safety features found on all Lancers include stability and traction control, antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and emergency braking assist. Seven standard airbags include front, front side-impact, side-curtain and a driver’s knee airbag.
