The Lancer is available in two trim levels with front-wheel drive - ES and GT - and two with All Wheel Control (AWC) - SE and Ralliart. The ES is powered by a 148-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the SE and GT get a 168-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine; available transmissions include a five-speed manual and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Ralliart boasts a 237-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, paired to a six-speed Twin-Clutch Sportronic Shift transmission (TC-SST) with paddle shifters. The ES is equipped with 16-inch wheels, auto-off headlights, a 60/40 split folding rear seat, air conditioning, cruise control and a CD player with MP3 capability, along with power mirrors, windows and door locks. The SE adds 16-inch aluminum wheels, satellite/HD radio and a rearview camera; additionally, heated exterior mirrors and heated front seats are found on the SE trim only. The GT is further outfitted with a rear wing spoiler, fog lights, sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch aluminum wheels, automatic climate control, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and a FAST-key passive entry system, as well as Mitsubishi's FUSE hands-free communication system, including voice-activated audio streaming and a USB port. The Ralliart gets an even more exclusive treatment, showcasing unique exterior and interior trim elements, along with performance tires. Standard safety features on every Lancer include stability and traction control systems, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes with brake assist, a tire pressure monitor and seven airbags.
The Mitsubishi Lancer carries over with minor changes for 2014. The SE, GT and Ralliart trims get a new 6.1-inch touch panel display audio unit, including satellite and HD radio, along with a rearview camera. Additionally, the entry-level DE trim has been removed from the model lineup.
