Car and Driver

Even in its most basic DE trim, the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer comes loaded with a respectable list of standard features. Moving up trim levels or adding options to the Mitsubishi Lancer allows you to create a very impressive economy car.

In reviews read by, the standard features on every 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer left reviewers very impressed. The Auto Channel writes that "the standard equipment level is high--even the DE has an AM/FM/CD audio system with MP3CD capability, and power windows." ConsumerGuide adds that moving up to the Mitsubishi Lancer ES brings standard "air conditioning," along with "cruise control, split folding rear seat, power door locks, remote keyless entry, [and] steering wheel radio controls." The top-end Mitsubishi Lancer "GTS interior upgrades the audio system and the front seats," according to The Auto Channel.

While the standard features are impressive for a car with the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer's price tag, the real treat lies in the options. Kelley Blue Book claims that "some of the Lancer's most desirable options include a Bluetooth hands-free phone interface, hard drive-based navigation and audio system." Motor Trend adds to the praise of the Lancer 2008 by saying that "one extra-cost feature not to be missed is the 650-watt Rockford-Fosgate Premium Audio system, which may be best in class." Edmunds rounds out the optional features list by pointing out options on the Lancer's 2008 ES and GTS trims "includes a sunroof" and "30GB hard drive capable of storing MP3 music files."

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.
