Much of the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer lineup looks like it would be miserly and fuel-efficient. Yet that's not so much the case.
With the base 2.0-liter engine, mileage is reasonably good, at 25 or 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, but that's 3-6 mpg lower on the highway than most other cars in this class.
GT models rate 2 or 3 mpg lower all around at 22/31 or 23/30 respectively, while the all-wheel-drive SE rates just 22/29--far thirstier than the AWD Subaru Impreza and its 36-mpg highway rating.
It continues to get worse with the Ralliart, which only manages 18 mpg city, 25 highway, and the Evo, rated as low as 17/22.
Compared to other small cars, the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer, Ralliart, and Evo models aren't standouts in any green sense. .
