In all but the base DE model, the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer comes with a generous list of standard features and some high-tech options that aren't widely offered in this affordable class of vehicle.

The base DE model is a price leader and, thus, doesn’t come with a long list of features. Power windows and a CD sound system are included, but expect steel wheels with cheap-looking wheel covers, as well as rear drum brakes with optional anti-lock. Most people will be happy with the mid-grade ES, adding stabilizer bars, ventilated disc brakes, a split-folding backseat, steering-wheel audio controls, keyless entry, and air conditioning. The sporty GTS lives up to its Evo look, with a sport suspension, fog lamps, rear spoiler, and air dams, plus automatic climate control, high-contrast gauges, sport seats, and a Bluetooth calling interface.

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.

A Bluetooth hands-free calling interface is optional on the ES but not for the DE. As part of an optional Sun and Sound Package, available for both the GTS and ES, a FAST Key entry system permits keyless entry and ignition. Other top options on the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer include a navigation system that includes a 30GB hard-drive music server, plus a 650-watt Rockford-Fosgate sound system and a sunroof.

Edmunds notes that the hard-drive system is "capable of storing MP3 music files," while Motor Trend says that the Rockford-Fosgate audio system is "not to be missed" and "may be best in class."

Conclusion

The 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer comes with everything you'd expect in a budget-priced small sedan or hatchback, with some unexpected tech options to make it all the more interesting.

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.
