Family Reviews the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer


The 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer sedan is an underdog in the competitive compact sedan segment and its lackluster driving experience and interior don't help it, says Family reviewer Carrie Kim. Not everything is dire; Carrie said this five-seat sedan's exterior looks good and all-wheel drive is available.

2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Review



I seriously don't know how Mitsubishi can remain as a viable dealer of vehicles in this country much longer. None of their model selection stands-out above the competition in any category except perhaps the high performance rally version of the Lancer.

It seems to me that people who generally buy a lancer don't have families. It's a car not necessarily aimed at the younger crowd but had found its niche in the market as such. I mean look at it. Would you rather have an old man civic or corolla or a girly Mazda 3? Or would you have this aggressively styled Lancer? When I made the choice in high school the answer was clear. Lancer all the way. Not saying it's the best car but man does it look good and man does it make you, the driver, look good.


It is a sharp looking car. Much nicer looking than a Corolla, Civic, or Mazda 3.

@LancerOwner is right. The car is better looking than a lot of the other options and I think Mitsubishi is relying on their brand equity to break into the family sedan market. We'll see how it works out.

I own a 2013 Lancer GT, manual. I am in my 40's, I love sport cars, performance and vehicles that represent great value for the $$$.
The Mitsubishi Lancer is one of those vehicles. I completely disagree with the reviewer of this article. I don't really think she drove the Lancer; because most people that do always complement it's performance and agility.
