2017 Mitsubishi Lancer vs 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer
Most automotive brands offer drivers a practical compact sedan model in their lineup and Mitsubishi has the Lancer. Consumers are drawn to Mitsubishi’s Lancer for its sporty handling on the road, available all-wheel drive, and low starting MSRP. Once buyers land on the Mitsubishi Lancer as their next vehicle, there is still the question of what model year to choose. In this comparison, let’s look at the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer vs 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer to see what differs between model years.
All brands tweak most vehicles between model years. It is important to consider these model year changes when determining each vehicle's value in relation to its price tag. The most significant change to the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer is the inclusion of a rearview camera and center touchscreen as standard features. These features are optional and cost extra in the 2016 Lancer model. Buyers looking for these features may find the low starting MSRP and their inclusion, at no extra cost, to be of significant value. Buyers who are uninterested in these features may prefer the 2016 Lancer.
