Mitsubishi Lancer LS Its Underwhelming

By Jepan Mihai

When looking at the Mitsubishi Lancer LS a few things matter, Size counts, right? And larger is better, right? Mitsubishi is banking on that tactic for the Lancer, which boasts a larger engine and cabin than its rivals.. It’s not a bad car, just underwhelming.

It may very well be as reliable as tomorrow and as durable as a blacksmith’s anvil, but Lancer’s lack of advancement reflects its conception and development by Mitsubishi Japan during a time of great economic stress.

While the 2.0 pulls strongly through the middling rev range and cruises easily with a long-legged gait, it can be momentarily snatchy in light-throttle/slow-speed situations.

There’s reason to smile at the fuel gauge, however, for Lancer’s consumption is in the 1.8′s ballpark. For that you can probably thank the engine’s relatively modest state of tune, and gearing just tall enough to assure economical cruising without the need to downshift quite as often as its smaller rivals. Not that shifting is a chore; the lever skims from slot to slot as though on rails.

It’s a pity the same can’t be said for the Mitsi’s cornering characteristics The chassis offers ample balance, but very little enthusiasm for brisk cornering because the soggy suspension doesn’t generate much grip and hasn’t much regard for direction. Everything is put exactly where its expected and works with absolute ease. That includes the radio, which has an after-market look and larger controls than the Honda

The steering scores with a particularly tight turning circle, then disappoints with effortlessly light weighting and a poor sense of connection. Civic’s itty-bitty buttons.

Lancer’s front seats are comfortable for commuting and cruising, but lacking laterally for hard cornering. The rear accommodation stands out from the crowd due to substantially more legroom than usualThe bench itself is relatively high, if short, and, while adequate for brief trips, lacks sufficient shape for long-range comfort. The centre armrest with two cupholders is a welcome detail. But it’s not enough to prevent the conclusion that while the Lancer LS has things going for it, they’re fewer than expected
