Mitsubishi's compact Lancer line runs the gamut from basic transportation all the way up to fast and furious rally ready racers. The Lancer's basic 2.0-liter four-cylinder produces 120 horsepower and teams with either a five-speed-manual or four-speed-automatic transmission. All Lancers ride on a four-wheel, fully independent suspension. A four-door Sportback hatchback version comes with a 160-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, while the Ralliart sedan comes equipped with a 162-horsepower version of the same powerplant and a sport-tuned suspension. The O-Z Rally sedan gets 15-inch alloy racing wheels, bumper extensions and side air dams. Air conditioning, a CD stereo, power locks, mirrors and windows, a rear defroster and tilt steering column come standard across the line, with keyless entry, cruise control, a power sunroof, and leather seats optional. A new Lancer lineup is due for 2008 but information has not been released yet.
