Mitsubishi has taken a keep-it-simple approach to the Lancer's dashboard. The amount of switchgear has been kept to a minimum, giving the dash a clear, uncluttered layout. The driver's seat has two-way adjustment, but the steering wheel doesn't move for reach. Most drivers will easily find a comfortable driving position, though.
Mitsubishi Lancer Saloon space & practicality
Front-seat occupants won't want for space in any direction, and although headroom is a wee bit tight in the back, there's lots of space for long legs. The saloon's boot is a decent size, but intruding wheelarches make it annoyingly narrow, and the narrow opening means it doesn't have the easy access of a hatchback.
Mitsubishi Lancer Saloon equipment
All four-door Lancers get a sporty look thanks to a bodykit, alloy wheels, foglamps and privacy glass. GS3 models have sports suspension and climate control. If you want luxuries such as heated leather seats, sat-nav and a stereo with a 30GB hard drive and iPod socket, go for the range-topping GS4.
