Review: Mitsubishi Lancer EX 1.6 GLX MT

the Mitsubishi Lancer EX debuted in 2009, conspicuously absent was a model with an economy While this undoubtedly sales, a cheaper Lancer EX have made it impossible to the huge stockpile of Cedia left over from the production run.

Three on, the Cedia is officially finito . and the Lancer EX finally gets a variant. While loaded MIVEC variable-valve trickery, might question whether a small motor will in such a big car. Well, what we’re here to out.

Though a bit dated to more modern competitors, the Lancer EX 1.6 GLX MT   still has that sports sedan spirit, like the iconic Galant But besides style, the Lancer’s hood and rear deck are for a reason. They make for the extra hardware stuffed the skin of the supercar-slaying Evo variant. the 16-inch wheels and the lack of and kit are more Clark Kent Superman, a set of used 18-inch GTA a body kit and a Ralliart badge are a trip to Banawe away.

The Lancer interior has always rather spartan . even on the Evo, and the GLX is even more so. It is a black-on-black affair of knuckle-rapping plastics. There’s some styled trim and perforated to break it up, but it’s also While it looks decent, are some fit-and-finish issues the cabin. The stiff foam aren’t anything to write about, either. Perhaps the saving graces here are the instrument gauges and the decent ergonomics. The shifter falls to hand, and the pedals are perfectly for heel-and-toe action.


Although a of 1.6 liters doesn’t promise action, short gearing and a motor make the Lancer to drive. There’s a bit of a dead around 3,000rpm, but the engine nicely when it’s up. At over 100kph, acceleration off as the motor struggles with the aerodynamics, but that doesn’t to affect economy. Driven it gets 9km/L in traffic and on the highway ( 20km/L is possible at a 70kph, but that’s a rather exercise).


It’s because the Lancer loves to Shorn of the heavy 2.0-liter the EX is surprisingly light, and that pervades the entire experience. It very little steering or effort to make the Lancer turn and go. The tall tires grip and thump around a but the suspension is otherwise supple and despite some body Other downsides include electric steering, a notchy and a fiddly clutch. But find a road and the Lancer EX still has the to engage. Even without a or AWD.

While no baby Evo, the EX GLX gives you the of a DVD touchscreen with a backing-up and optional GPS. The speakers great, but that’s cheap and to fix. There are few cars well-loaded and this spacious at price. Still, I’ve been a proponent of buying a car than buying toys, and trade all the toys here for a suspension, bigger rims and tires.

Not only does the 1.6-liter formula work, it works well. This is a fun, and lively car to drive. And in terms of the Lancer is the most loaded in its class. But while it may appeal to the buyer more than the Elantra or the refined Focus, no denying that the Lancer is to feel, well, old. Given the perhaps that can be forgiven, and the is definitely the best bargain in market segment, but the next-generation can’t come soon
