With standard audio and power features, as well as some high-tech options unexpected in the class, the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer scores with drivers.

The 2009 GTS is now equipped with standard high-contrast gauges and a Bluetooth interface system with voice recognition for hands-free calling (available for the ES). A new component of the optional Sun and Sound Package, available for both the GTS and ES, is the Freehand Advanced Security Transmitter. The FAST Key entry system allows the driver to unlock the Lancer via an in-pocket remote and by simply grasping the handle on either of the front doors.

The Auto Channel reports 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.

Regarding options, Edmunds points out available features on the Lancer's 2009 ES and GTS trims "includes a sunroof" and "30GB hard drive capable of storing MP3 music files." Motor Trend adds to the praise of the Lancer 2009 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." 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."


Even in its most basic DE trim, the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer comes loaded with a respectable list of standard conveniences.

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.
