The Mitsubishi Lancer is an exciting sports sedan, ready to help you “find new roads,” safely and in ultimate style.
If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, you’ll be delighted by the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer, and the uncompromising commitment to safety and customer satisfaction offered by the Mitsubishi brand.
The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer is a five-passenger car available in four trim levels, each one unique, but all fun and safe to drive. No matter what your budget or driving needs, the Lancer series delivers value and ultimate performance.
As far as warranties, Mitsubishi can’t be beat. Its competitors don’t even come close. Combine Mitsubishi’s incredible coverage with its award-winning safety reports, and you’ll breathe easy behind the wheel of any 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer.
For the seventh consecutive year, the 2015 Lancer was awarded the top safety pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Equipped with seven airbags, including driver’s knee, the Lancer also features the All-Wheel Control (AWC) four-wheel drive system, which improves handling and traction against even the most difficult terrains and weather conditions.
The interior is designed for comfort, seating five passengers across a 60/40 split folding seat. Technological features, including the 6.1-inch touch screen display audio system with rear camera, make driving easy and fun.
Starting at $17,395, the Lancer gets 26/34 mpg and comes in a six-color paint palette in: Rally Red, Apex Silver, Mercury Gray, Octane Blue, Wicked White, and Tarmac Black. Any of these colors complements your choice of beige or black fabric interior.
In case these standard features aren’t enough, check out the four available trim levels: ES, SE AWC, GT, and the turbo-charged Ralliart.
The ES is powered by a 2.0-L14 DOHC 16-valve Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control System with 5-speed manual transmission, producing 148 horsepower at 6,000 rpm with a combined fuel economy of 29/28 mpg.
MSRP ranges from $17,395-18,295, the price increase representing the available option of Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for improved fuel economy.
For a power upgrade, take a look at the 2015 Lancer SE AWC, loaded with a 2.4-L14 DOHC engine, able to produce a horsepower boost over the ES of 168 at 6,000 rpm.
As its name suggests, the Lancer SE AWC is also outfitted with the All-Wheel Control four-wheel drive system, and gets a combined fuel economy of 25 mpg for a starting MSRP of $20,995.
Although it has the same engine and horsepower capabilities as the SE AWC, the GT offers two transmission choices, the GT 5-speed or GT CVT.
This four-wheel drive vehicle has a slightly improved fuel economy over the SE AWC at 26/26 mpg, with the MSRP ranging between $20,595-21,995.
Customizable with the same six-shade paint palette, the GT exclusively features black sport fabric interior.
For a thorough inspection of this car’s specs and features, check out this short but detailed review of the 2015 Lancer GT.
While the Lancer SE AWC and Lancer GT boast a slight power boost over the Lancer ES, the Lancer Ralliart really takes thing up a serious notch, thanks to its 2.0-liter TURBO DOHC engine, which roars to action with 237 horsepower at 6,000 rpm.
Though it comes with a standard five-speed manual transmission, the optional automated manual six-speed Twin Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) makes harnessing the GT’s power an engaging and fun experience.
Similarly customizable like the GT, you have an exterior paint color choice, but the interior is outfitted in black sport fabric.
Although it’s the most powerful of the Lancer lineup, the Ralliart also has the most safety features, with the addition of Hill Start Assist, the only Lancer equipped with HSA and was given an overall four-star safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
These distinctions come with a decreased fuel economy of 20 mpg and increased MSRP of $29,495.
As we all know, power comes with a price. But with this much power at this price, the 2015 Lancer Ralliart is an absolute steal!
For those of you curious about the 2015 Lancer Evolution, Mitsubishi’s high-performance sports car, now is the time to check it out before it disappears from dealer inventories forever.
Fast facts about this fast car: the tenth generation of Lancer Evolutions, already discontinued in other markets, this speedster is turbocharged and intercooled with DOHC 16-valve, four-cylinder 2.0-L engine, producing a roaring 291 horsepower at 6,500 rpm.
The MSRP falls between $34,495-38,995, a small price to pay for the chance to own a car soon to be automotive history.
In addition to top-notch safety features, awards, and ratings, the Mitsubishi Warranty is the best around, especially when compared to its sports-sedan competitors. Let’s look at the breakdown.
Mitsubishi offers the following warranties: a 10-Year/100,000 Miles Powertrain Limited Warranty, a 5-Year/60,000 Miles New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and 7-Year/100,000 Miles Auto-Corrosion Perforation Limited Warranty.
Simply put, you’re covered.
If, for any reason, you’re considering any of Mitsubishi’s competitors, you’ll be disappointed to discover the following warranties shared by: Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, and Ford.
Compared to Mitsubishi, each one of those manufacturers offers paltry warranties: a 5-Year/60,000 Miles Powertrain Limited Warranty, 3-Years/36,000 Miles New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and 5-Years/Unlimited Miles Auto-Corrosion Perforation Limited Warranty.
Additionally, new Mitsubishi vehicles, under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, include Restraint System coverage for seatbelts and airbags for a duration of 5 years or 60,000 miles, as well as 12 months/12,000 miles added coverage for adjustments.
For even extra peace of mind, Mitsubishi purchases come with 5-Year/Unlimited Mileage complimentary 24-hour emergency Roadside Assistance. This is the best Roadside Assistance package you can find in this class of cars.
The competition doesn’t even come close with Ford offering complimentary Roadside Assistance for five years, but only 60,000 miles; while Mazda, Subaru, and Nissan have you covered for three years or 36,000 miles; Toyota for two years or 25,000 miles and Honda offering nothing whatsoever in the way of emergency services.
It’s an easy equation. Proven safety plus outstanding protection equals Mitsubishi.
