2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan
Benefits of Driving a 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan
The styling on Mitsubishi's 2009 Lancer sets it apart from the rest of the compact and subcompact sedan crowd, thanks to the flashy front nose and sleek yet upright profile. It's a good value for the money, and has a fashionable, comfortable interior to boot. Standard side air bags and options such as the digital music server also make it an attractive choice from a features standpoint.
What's new for 2009?
The Mitsubishi Lancer, fresh of off last year's complete redesign, receives a new available 2.4L engine for 2009, along with a new ES-Sport trim that adds fog lights, a large rear spoiler, and front and side air dams. A Ralliart model, which replaces 2008's Lancer Evolution GSR, is expected to be released later in the model year.
- Attractive, sporty styling
- standard air bags all around
- available navigation system and music server
- new 2.4L engine available.
The 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer is available with two engine choices, with a third expected later in the model year on the Lancer Ralliart. The DE, ES, and ES-Sport Lancers are powered by a 152-horsepower, 2.0L four-cylinder engine (though the engine only makes 143 horsepower in California-emission states), while the GTS sports a bored-and-stroked version of the base engine. The resulting displacement on the GTS is 2.4L, with an output of 168 horsepower. Either engine can be mated to a five-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The CVT also features a Sportronic mode, which simulates six gears that can be selected using magnesium steering-wheel paddle shifters.
