2016 Mitsubishi Lancer comes with high-value features, new design

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 1, 2015

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. has revealed the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer. In addition to being fun to drive, this model not only has a new design but it also has a list of standard features that are more impressive than ever.

The standard features that the 2016 Lancer boasts include an automatic air condition climate control and ES trim level like the FUSE Hands-free Link System. Enhancing even further the value of this compact sedan are the alloy wheels, new LED daytime running lights, and fog lights.

Additionally the SE trim features have the all-wheel control, display audio with HD radio, heated front seats, and rearview camera. The SEL trim level meanwhile adds to the leather seats, auto-dimming mirror, and rain sensing wipers with the auto on/off headlights, to name a few.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer has a GT trim level that makes the vehicle more fun-to-drive especially with the sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, and larger disc brakes. There is also the rear spoiler and sunroof.

Finally there is the 5-speed manual or the generation CVT8. Furthermore, the GT trim also offers the Sportronic Steering wheel paddle shifters.

Other add-ons of the 2016 Lancer include not just the new seat fabrics but also the newly designed center console that has a built-in USB port.

Mitsubishi will also be offering two new colors for the 2016 Lancer -- Alloy Silver and Diamond White Pearl. Furthermore, at the lower ES trim level, the All-Wheel Control system has been made more readily available and when partnered with the new generation CVT8 transmission greatly improves the performance while preserving fuel economy.

Proving that the brand is truly committed to safety, the brand has been named by IIHS as the 2015 "Top Safety Pick." This is the seventh time that Mitsubishi Lancer has received this honor.

Each Lancer model continues to show its record of excellence especially with its inclusive list of safety features and safety technologies.

An example is the Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) safety body construction system. Those who prioritize safety will certainly appreciate Mitsubishi’s industry-leading warranty. These include the option of the fully transferable 5-year/60,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty; 5-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance; 7-year/100,000 mile anti-corrosion perforation limited warranty; and 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty.

MMNA executive vice president’s Don Swearingen shares that the 2016 Lancer does not only have amazing appearance due to the updated styling but also has a drive and performance level that goes beyond value-oriented price point.

The new Lancer builds on the legacy of testing the limits of what a compact car can do when it comes to design, performance, and technology, but affordable at the same time, relates Swearingen. The 2016 Lancer expects to have a strong position as value leader in this segment considering that it will sell at a MSRP of $17,595.
