Compare the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer
The Mitsubishi Lancer is a top pick among compact cars, what with its slick style, incredible power, and value-oriented price. Living up to the hype is more difficult than it may seem but the Lancer ES does it well. The compact car market has plenty of competitors, like the comparable Kia Forte LX and Chevrolet Cruze L Manual. How well does the Lancer hold up to the competition?
All three models are close when it comes to price. The Lancer starts at $17,595 while the Cruze comes in at $17,845. The Forte undercuts both models with a starting price of $15,990. When comes to features, however, the Forte falls short.
In addition to a much smaller fuel tank, the Forte lists Cruise Control as an optional feature while the Cruze doesn’t offer it at all. The Lancer lists Cruise Control as a standard feature, making it a top choice for highway driving. The Lancer also offers seat back storage, reading lights, and automatic climate control as standard features.
When it comes to power, the Lancer trumps both the Forte and Cruze. Featuring a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine capable of producing 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, it easily pulls ahead of the competition. By comparison, the Forte offers just 145 hp and 130 lb-ft of torque while the Cruze comes in with 138 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque.
Last, but certainly not least, you can't forget about Mitsubishi's incredible warranty. All in all, the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer ES can go tire-to-tire with the competition and come out on top.
