2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 53 reviews
The Mitsubishi Lancer is carried over for its second year of production. Midway through the year, Mitsubishi introduced a special model called the Lancer Evolution, with 271 horsepower and 17-inch wheels.
The three Lancer styles are ES, LS and O-Z Rally. All Lancers come standard with air conditioning, power steering, cloth upholstery, front bucket seats, full power accessories and a CD player. The LS and O-Z include cruise control, keyless entry and alloy wheels.
The Lancer houses a 2.0 liter inline four, which supplies 120 horsepower and 130 pound-feet of torque. The ES and O-Z models come standard with a five-speed manual, and a four-speed automatic transmission is optional. The LS van only be equipped with the automatic. Fuel efficiency is estimated at 26/33 mpg with the manual and 24/30 mpg with the automatic.
The Lancer evolved from Mitsubishi's economical Mirage, now offering a more spacious cabin and a more refined ride. The Lancer accelerates fairly well when equipped with the manual transmission, while the automatic is rather unresponsive. Handling capabilities are above average for this class, and the cabin is protected from intrusive road and wind noise.
Consumers have complained that the Lancer is lacking in safety features: ABS and side airbags are only available on the mid-level LS.
