Buyer’s Guide: 2013 MITSUBISHI LANCER

This year sees the 10th anniversary of the Mitsubishi Lancer, and the 2013 range of models offers some fantastic extra features, along with various improvements on previous years.

The 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer is available across the following levels:

  • ES
    All four levels of the 2013 Lancer come as standard with two wheel front axle drive, cruise control and Continuously Variable Transmission or CVT for ultimate mastery while out on the road.
    The first two tiers feature a 148hp 2.0L four-cylinder engine, packing a surprising punch for an otherwise fairly compact vehicle.
    The ES includes 16-inch steel wheels, front and rear disc brakes, 5-speed manual transmission, a four-speaker sound system, tire pressure monitoring system, air conditioning and USB input with iPod control.
    Airbags located at the front seat, driver’s knee and side curtain offer fairly comprehensive safety in the event of an accident.
  • LX
    Taking a step up, the LX replaces the 16-inch steel wheels with alloys and includes the addition of a security alarm, improved fabric seats, climate control air conditioning, keyless entry, chrome grille and a six-speaker sound system with two tweeters.
    These extra features obviously enhance the comfort and convenience afforded to you by the Lancer as a whole. Heated seats ensure your car journeys are as comfortable as possible during those frosty winter months, while the leather bound steering wheel, gearshift and park brake provide an additional touch of luxury.
  • VRX
    If you really want to go all out and take everything the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer has to offer, you’ll definitely want to consider the VRX.
    This level includes the addition of a more robust 2.4L four-cylinder engine, 18-inch alloy wheels and front fog lamps, as well as a powerful nine-speaker sound system with four tweeters and a subwoofer.
    Powered folding mirrors are also an important addition, giving you a great deal of visibility while out on the road.
    This model provides the ultimate in luxury and comfort and also includes a couple of cosmetic treats in the form of a chrome grille surround, alloy sports pedals and a rear stabilizer bar.
    What’s more, the VRX model offers Rockford Fosgate premium audio and Mitsubishi a Multi Communication System with a 7″ WVGA touch screen display, 3D navigation mapping and SD Card input for the ultimate in in-car audio-visual entertainment.

All in all, the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer offers a range of enhancements in its 10th year. The Lancer is certainly proving to be a sound vehicle with an array of high-quality components and extensive functionality in terms of handling, safety, comfort, and entertainment.
