2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Preview

Pros: The sporty 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart boasts standard all-wheel drive and a strong, reliable powertrain backed by a 10-year/160,000km warranty. The Premium Package adds leather-trimmed Recaro seats, among other things.

Cons: As a compact car, the Lancer Ralliart is far from setting fuel economy benchmarks. Plus, the ride is fairly stiff. The current generation dates back to 2007, so technology and styling are showing serious signs of age.

2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Price: Prepare to pay at least $32,398 for your new Lancer Ralliart. A few options will increase that total.

2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Fuel Economy: The official ratings are 11.9L/100km in the city and 7.9L/100km on the highway.

Improvements and Changes: No significant changes for 2014.

2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Powertrain: Unlike the regular Lancer, this model gets a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 237 horsepower through a 6-speed, dual-clutch Sportronic transmission and Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control system.

Cargo Capacity: The 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart has a very small, 283-litre trunk that probably won't meet the needs of small families.

Safety: Seven airbags, ABS, brake assist, electronic brake force distribution, brake override, stability control, and traction control all come standard.

Comparing the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart: Considering its sporty aspirations, the Lancer Ralliart goes up against the Subaru WRX, Honda Civic Si, and Volkswagen Jetta GLI.
