2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Review

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Review

Pros

  • Large interior, classy exterior styling, many standard features.

Cons

  • O-Z model lacks performance to back up looks, side airbags and antilock brakes available only on LS trim, no available engine upgrade.

What's new

The '02 Lancer is Mitsubishi's replacement for its Mirage economy car, though the Mirage continues this year in coupe format only. The chief reason for the new name (for the U.S., as the car has always been called the Lancer elsewhere) is Mitsubishi's desire to emphasize that the Lancer is more upscale, larger and better-engineered than the old Mirage.
