Mitsubishi Lancer Saloon 1.6 Elegance 4d (2007/07) - Owner Review

The boot space is a bonus, although some may argue its not as practical as a hatchback, however your luggage is more secure if the car gets broken into.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very nippy. The engine may only produce 96bhp, however the amount torque makes up for this. The car is also comfortable and is effortless to drive. Tends to wheel spin if your a little to hasty off the mark though so you might find yourself going though tyres fast.

What's it like to park?
A medium sized family car, so not that easy, however light steering helps.

Nothing so far, its proving to be a very reliable run about.

What's most practical about your car?
The boot space is a bonus, although some may argue its not as practical as a hatchback, however your luggage is more secure if the car gets broken into.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The air-con system is very good, and the standard CD player is a nice touch.
