The Mitsubishi Lancer is best known when it's in high performance Evo guise, but these models usually overshadow the standard model. In fact the normal Lancer is a good family car that comes well equipped, has decent rear passenger space and is good to drive too. The styling echoes the Evo X with an aggressive nose and a rear spoiler but it is let down inside with a drab and slightly dated interior which lacks finesse.

Still the Lancer does come well equipped and is available with a strong diesel engine, borrowed from Volkswagen. The saloon bodystyle isn't ideal for practicality, but certainly looks neater than the ungainly Sportback variant.
