Mitsubishi finally revamped the innocuous and boring Lancer with a striking replacement. The new Lancer has a longer wheelbase and width, but is slightly shorter than the outgoing model. A new 152-bhp 2.0L inline-4 is mated to a choice of a 5-speed manual or optional CVT. The sporty GTS will appeal to enthusiasts, with its 18-inch wheels, front air dam, rear spoiler, sport suspension, and bigger disc brakes. An optional 650-watt (max.) Rockford Fosgate audio system includes nine speakers and a subwoofer.
The Lancer is all new for 2008. The new Lancer wears striking new styling on its larger body. Mitsubishi offers Lancer in DE, ES, and GTS trim levels. All are powered by a 152-hp four-cylinder mated to either a 5-speed manual or CVT transmission.
