Pros

Sportback functionality; lots of sporty fun; excellent performance from Ralliart model


Model Highlights

The 5-seat Lancer comes in a slew of variations for 2011, with two distinct body styles, a few engines and a couple of trim levels for each. At the heart of the base Lancer DE and also the ES in either sedan or Sportback styles is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, which produces 148 hp and comes mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission.

Farther up the Lancer food chain is the 2.4-liter inline-4, which delivers 168 hp and powers the GTS, in both sedan and Sportback trim. A 5-speed manual is standard there as well, though ES and GTS models can be ordered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). DE, ES and GTS Lancers are front-wheel drive.

Next is the Lancer Ralliart, also available in either body style. It derives its 242 hp and 258 lb-feet of torque from a turbocharged 2.4-liter 4-cylinder. That power is put to all four wheels through either a 5-speed manual or Mitsubishi's advanced, rally-inspired Twin Clutch-Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST).

The Lancer DE comes with plenty of features, such as power windows, doors and mirrors, plus anti-lock brakes, passenger and driver airbags, a knee airbag and side-impact airbags. Some options on the DE are standard on the ES, such as air conditioning and keyless entry. The ES also has a 60/40 folding rear seat and 16-inch alloy wheels.

The GTS has the larger 2.4-liter engine and a lot of rally influence. Sportier styling means fog lights, rear spoiler, sport-tuned suspension and huge 18-inch wheels. The Sportback adds active stability control and all GTS models have unibody construction designed to absorb energy in case of an impact. The Sportback's designers kept functionality in mind as much as sportiness, and gave it a cargo floor that can be lowered three inches for more space and a rear door that extends all the way to the bumper for loading heavy or cumbersome gear.

The Ralliart gets an upgraded 140-watt sound system, with an optional 710-watt Rockford-Fosgate system. Other options include a navigation system and Recaro sport seats.


Model News

For 2011 the Mitsubishi lineup has been shaken up a bit. For starters the continuously variable transmission (CVT) has been dropped from the Lancer DE trim. In the Lancer Sportback, a base ES model has been added to the lineup, available with both a manual or CVT transmission. All Lancer Ralliart trims now include Mitsubishi's Twin Clutch-Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) and that car's turbocharged engine now boasts more power, up to 242 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque. Ralliart models will shed 90 pounds and will ride on standard 18-inch wheels. Mitsubishi claims 0 to 60 mph time improves from 5.9 seconds to 5.4 seconds.

Mitsubishi's top-of-the-line Lancer, the Evolution, will take a hiatus for 2011, as it did in 2009, with delivery expected again for 2012.


Value Writeup

At the base level, the Lancer packs plenty of fun and safety features into a sub-$15,000 package. The Ralliart models, feature a mild turbocharged engine but enough performance to be surprising. Sportback models add increased functionality. The base Lancer returns great fuel economy, achieving 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

Summary
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 Lancer, Lancer Evolution, and Outlander; 2009-2011 Lancer Sportback and 2011 Outlander Sport vehicles. The affected vehicles, manufactured with 4B1 engines, have an engine pulley and belt arrangement for turning the alternator, the cooling fan and the power steering pump (if equipped). These pulleys may experience unusual wear and allow for belt detachment.

Consequence
If the drive belt detaches, the battery may discharge, resulting in an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the drive belt with a rubber belt. Drive pulleys that are excessively worn will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Mitsubishi customer service at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi's number for this recall is SR-14-009.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
