For 2017, the Mitsubishi has discontinued the GT trim level of Lancer. Many of the GT’s sport-themed features migrate to SE trim level, though. Now, all Lancers get a rearview camera and the formerly optional 6.1″ center screen as standard.
Subtle changes are all the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer have seen. The headlights and the grille have a new shape making it sharper, sportier and more stylish than ever.
The use of the new split-spoke wheels and the rest of the rear aspects make the new Lancer more attractive.
The interior, with its 3-spoke steering wheel, is leather wrapped while the rest of the upholstery looks more average. There is automatic climate control, a 6-way adjustable driver’s seat, power windows, keyless entry complete with panic feature, power door locks, and many other functions too.
Active cruise control, 7 SRS airbags, automatic braking system, traction control logic, electronic brake-force distribution, tire pressure monitoring system, etc. build the safety system. On infotainment, AM/FM Radio, Rockford Fosgate audio, DVD /MP3/ CD player, Bluetooth and USB port are available.
The ES’s list of standard features includes remote keyless entrance, LED running lights, different color driver details screen, and also Fuse voice controls. There is a USB port, Bluetooth phone and audio connection, and a CD player too. There is also a 4-speaker stereo, fog lights, and automatic climate control too.
Engine/ Fuel Efficiency
Under the hood, the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer has a 4-cylinder 2.0L engine rated at 148 hp and 145 lbs. ft. of torque. While the CVT is optionally provided, the 5-speed manual transmission is tasked with the forwarding the power produced to the wheels.
EPA says we should expect CVT to return an EPA rating of 27/34/30 mpg on the city/highway/combined.
The standard safety features include antilock disc brakes, full-length side curtain airbags, front side-mounted airbags, and a driver’s side knee airbag, while updated safety technology such blind-spot warnings, adaptive cruise control, and the lane-departure alerts are again conspicuously absent from a lineup.
