Buyers looking for an affordable and well-equipped saloon should take a look at Mitsubishi Lancer. Also available as an estate, it’s good to drive and reliable, sharing its profile with the unmistakable EVO IX – Mitsubishi’s super-saloon – and the rear spoiler nods towards the Lancer’s sporty heritage. Although Lancer isn’t particularly stimulating and the choice of trim and engine options are restricted – only a 1.6 or 2.0-litre petrol to choose from – it’s ideal for families in need of a high value, practical saloon.
