The Lancer is eye-catching on the outside. Across the parking lot, in sporty GTS trim, it could be mistaken for the iconic Evo, or at the very least a higher-performance Ralliart.

Expert Quotes:

Lancers all use the same basic body, with a big grille in front and a sporty, go-forward look down the sides, accentuated by a sharp belt-line crease and rear lip.
CNET

While the 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer's chiseled exterior lends an air of aggression, its interior design and materials tend to drag down the vehicle's overall appeal.
Edmunds

The car looks great too, in this faux Evo get up.
AutoWeek

Same aggressive snout, same racer-boy wing, same cheap interior, but no rally car suspension or hopped up turbo.
Automobile Magazine


While you might peg the sharklike snout of the 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer as belonging to an Evo at first glance, the Lancer costs much less, and it's nearly as good-looking. The Lancer is chunky but low and lean, with a high beltline, a nicely proportioned small sedan or Sportback hatch. The mid-level Lancer ES gets color-keyed door handles and mirrors, but it's the larger wheels of GTS models that especially serve to fill out those proportions and help the design pop.

Even on base models, sporty interior themes and a mix of darker surfaces and matte-metallic trims give it a sophisticated, upscale look from a distance from a few paces away. Unfortunately, up close the materials are rather drab.

Conclusion

The Lancer is eye-catching on the outside. Across the parking lot, in sporty GTS trim, it could be mistaken for the iconic Evo, or at the very least a higher-performance Ralliart.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
