Tell people you own a Mitsubishi Lancer and you aren’t likely to encounter many looks of jealousy.
The Lancer, after all, is a standard economy-minded family sedan that doesn’t offer much in the way of panache or excitement. It’s a good car that’ll transport you and your closest friends or family members to the places you need to go.
The base trim offers a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that makes 148 hp and uses a 5-speed manual transmission to deliver a respectable 25 miles per gallon in the city and 34 on the highway.
The Lancer is as practical as practical transportation gets.
The Lancer Evolution, though, is a completely different beast.
And it’s taking a final bow.
