2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Hatchback
Benefits of Driving a 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Hatchback
At the base level, the Lancer packs plenty of fun and safety features into a sub-$15,000 package. The Ralliart model features a mild turbocharged engine but enough performance to still surprise. Sportback models add increased functionality. The base Lancer returns great fuel economy, achieving 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
What's new for 2013?
Most of the Changes for 2013 pertain to the all-wheel-drive SE model. All-wheel-drive models are often sold to customers with an active lifestyle, so Lancer SE models are now designed to accommodate Thule cargo racks directly with a simple plug in design. Also new on the SE are 16-inch alloy wheels in an attractive five spoke design. 2013 SE Lancers may now be equipped with the Premium Option Package, which includes a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, a 6-CD changer, a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and a few other upgraded interior trim parts.
