2023 Mitsubishi Lancer interior
Inside, using the Lancer 2023’s infotainment and voice control systems is frustrating, given its sluggish response to user input. The Mitsubishi Lancer comes standard with automatic climate control, a four-speaker audio system, a 6.1-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, a USB port, and audio control.
Available features include a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate audio system, satellite radio, 7-inch touchscreen, navigation, a sunroof, and proximity key entry.

2023 Mitsubishi Lancer Engine
The Lancer ES 2.0 comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower and is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. All-wheel drive models come with a 168-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2023 Mitsubishi Lancer comes with a Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission (CVT) that is supplied with the base engine. The prime mover provides enough power for most driving situations. However, it is very noisy under sudden acceleration, especially when combined with the current CVT. The 2.4L engine is more precise and provides faster acceleration.
The Mitsubishi Lancer comes with a front-wheel drive and is one of the few compact cars with all-wheel drive. With the base engine and CVT, the Lancer 2023 delivers 27 mpg city and 34 mpg highway. These are some of the lowest fuel economy estimates in its class. The 2.4-liter models get up to 23/30 mpg city/highway.

The front is also designed with large air intakes, a pronounced diffuser and a bold hood with air vent to keep the engine compartment nice and cool.
