Quick Look

Since 2007 the Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback hasn’t gotten many changes. There are so many other brands that are updating almost all of their models year after year, and then there is the 2016 Lancer Sportback, which doesn’t look much different from the way it did in 2007 – or exhibit any new notable features.




Full Review

The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback is going through another year with nothing done to it but a facelift. This has been the case since 2007 and drivers are starting to get upset with them. Mitsubishi cannot expect to maintain all of its customers if they don’t keep up with the changing trends such as the technological changes, and the powertrain changes all the other cars are implementing in their new models. Mitsubishi has announced that they are not keeping up with these trends solely because they do not have the money and resources to do this with all their models and since they see more potential in their SUV models, they utilise all their resources on them.

Taking a look at the exterior look of the new Lancer Sportback we can see not much has changed, as discussed earlier. They still have their large rectangular shaped grille with the Mitsubishi logo placed on the centre of it. The headlights are still the same with a thin shape which seem very standard. This may be because they haven’t really changed much in 8 years. The rear view also seems very identical to the previous model, with their spoiler giving it a sporty look and almost colourful-looking tail lights.

The interior of the car also looks very standard and bland. There is nothing flashy about it at all, with the multimedia screen in the centre of the front view being the most eye-catching part of the car inside. The functions to control the limited features in the car are very simple to use as there aren’t as many buttons as other cars. The seats are made with the same material which is fine since they are still going for a sporty look and the material they use complements that perfectly. The space inside could definitely use some work, especially for the rear seats. With a lot else wrong with the new Lancer Sportback, the interior space should’ve been something to improve on.

Under the hood we can see Mitsubishi uses a 2.0-litre incline-4 MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control system) which is able to push 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. It is powered by a 5-speed manual transmission. This runs through both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive systems. With the front-wheel drive being standard for drivers and the all-wheel drive being optional.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback is not bad of a car, even though they haven’t updated most of its technology, it still has done a great job with what it has changed. Mitsubishi has done a pretty good job of making sure they try to keep their drivers happy even though it may be out of their capabilities.

Power and Performance:

The 2.0-liter engine is perky at lower speeds if you have the five-speed manual. Mitsubishi has updated its CVT across the lineup for 2016, and we haven't driven the revised transmission yet, but the smaller engine struggled to keep up with traffic with the previous CVT. Moving up to the 2.4-liter engine provides plenty of power and torque to move the small sedan with more confidence. On GT models with the CVT, Mitsubishi adds magnesium steering-wheel paddle shifters with six simulated gears, too.

Interiors and Special Features:

Now in its ninth year on the market, the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer is showing its age despite several incremental updates over the years. It remains a straightforward, fairly handsome compact four-door sedan. It has chunky proportions, crisp edges, a low-and-lean stance, and a high beltline--which give it  a nice sense of proportion.

But it looks old-fashioned and upright against the latest, wedgier compact sedans--the latest Focus, Mazda 3, and the new fastback Honda Civic--and you'll need to step up to the sportier GT model to get the larger 18-inch alloy wheels that fill out the wheel wells and make the design pop.

Safety features:

The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer may now be nine years old, but its safety ratings have held up commendably well. And its crisp, direct driving dynamics may well help owners in sudden emergency maneuvers to avoid an accident.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has given the Lancer its top rating of 'Good' in frontal offset, side impact, and rear impact tests, along with the roof strength test. More impressively, it rates 'Acceptable' (just one notch down) in the new and challenging small-overlap front-crash test, which hadn't even been invented when the Lancer first landed in showrooms. The combination was good enough for an IIHS Top Safety Pick designation last year.
