Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

The Lancer was one of the first models to undergo Euro NCAPs more stringent crash tests in 2009. The new overall rating covers not only adult occupant safety but includes child and pedestrian safety along with a rear impact whiplash test. It scored the maximum five stars and all models come with ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution, seven airbags, electric anti-trapping windows, Isofix child seat mountings and three-point seatbelts with outer force limiters and pretensioners.

The Lancer may be longer than most alternatives, but the boot doesn’t seem to benefit from the extra length. Interior leg room is ample, but the 400-litre boot is smaller than other cars, such as the Ford Focus and Renault Megane. For longer items, the rear seats split and fold, while the decent-sized glovebox, centre console storage and door bins are useful family features.
