Mitsubishi wants to improve its North-American performance and introduces some important modifications for the current Lancer, the compact car that is also sold in Europe for quite a long time. The car is underperforming because the offer in the segment is more technologically updated. 

The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer features a new design and a standard features list improved, all with a starting price of $17,595.

Beyond its new design, the 2016 Lancer boasts an updated list of standard features at the ES trim level such as FUSE Hands-free Link System, automatic air condition climate control, fog lights, alloy wheels and new LED daytime running lights. 

The SE trim level features all-wheel control, heated front seats, rearview camera and display audio with HD radio, while the new SEL trim level adds leather seats, rain sensing wipers with auto on/off headlights, auto-dimming mirror and more. 

The GT trim level has sport-tuned suspension, larger disc brakes, 18 inch two-tone alloy wheels, sunroof and rear spoiler, and is available as a 5-speed manual or with the new generation CVT8. Sportronic Steering wheel paddle shifters are available for the GT trim.

Other additions for the 2016 Lancer include new seat fabrics, a newly designed center console with built-in USB port, and two new colors—Diamond White Pearl and Alloy Silver. Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control system is now more readily available at the lower ES trim level, and a new generation CVT8 transmission is also there.
