2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Gets Slight Facelift and New Price


The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer gets a small facelift and a slightly more expensive starting price.

The facelifted Lancer will be $200 more expensive than the 2015 model with a starting price of $18,405 including destination. Along with its new design, the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer has an updated list of standard features on the ES model including FUSE Hands-free Link System, automatic air condition climate control, fog lights, alloy wheels and new LED daytime running lights. The SE trim will get all-wheel control, heated front seats, rearview camera and display audio with HD radio, while the new SEL trim adds leather seats, rain sensing wipers with auto on/off headlights, auto-dimming mirror and more.

Those looking for a sportier driving experience can opt for the GT model that comes with sport-tuned suspension, larger disc brakes, 18-inch wheels, sunroof, rear spoiler and is available with either a five-speed manual or a new-generation CVT8.

Still, the aging Lancer isn’t a volume seller and this update isn’t likely to help the situation. Only 16,945 were sold last year, which is just slightly more than the Mirage.

    Mitsubishi could use this platform but it needs more then a bumper refresh re do the body and upgrade interior quality. Add a 6 speed and maybe just maybe a turbo 3 in the lancer line up and better mileage and power across the board on all engines.

    Oh, Mitsubishi. I can’t believe that this is the company that provided car lovers dreams… No more excited WRC and sporty image and speciality. It’s time to merge with Mitsubishi heavy industry which the Mitsubishi separated from. And start making military vehicle. Other ways no future for this poor car brand…

    They’re not doing anything that other car companies aren’t doing better. The 2016 Civic with two engine choices, The Impreza’s standard all wheel drive, and honestly I think the new Corolla looks better. Not to mention The Mazda 3 … It looks like they’re trying to offer Value for money, but again, Hyundai and Kia have beaten them to the punch. I don’t know what will boost their sales, but focusing on one or two things instead of trying to make something for everyone would be a start. An image change with smart marketing would help. Target Millennials and offer something exciting with radical styling to make them relevant again.

    They have an opportunity with the 2017 Mirage, Style it right, price it right and toss in a turbo with decent suspension/steering. Who wouldn’t want a car that’s cheap on gas and fun to drive?

    Since they removed the turbo engine from ralliart and evo x from the market,why not redesign a new lancer platform and give it a 1.6 turbo engine good for 190-200hp? i am sure they will regain buyer again from the market.
