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.
