2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy

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.

Compared to other small cars, the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer, Ralliart, and Evo models aren't standouts in any green sense. .

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.
