2017 Mitsubishi Lancer | Aurora, Colorado

The compact segment is incredibly competitive, making it difficult for one vehicle to stand out from the crowd. Although the compact class has a myriad of good options, the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer near Denver, CO is particularly appealing for drivers who want the drivability and efficiency of a compact while also having available all-wheel drive. There is a lot to like about the new Lancer, but here in Colorado, the all-wheel drive option makes it one of the top compacts on the road.

With the ability to handle inclement weather better than most vehicles in class, the Lancer already has a leg up on its competition, but with strong performance, quality interior features, and more standard features for the new model year, the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer is a great value, and it's available right here at Shortline Mitsubishi.

Performance capable of handling the Rockies

As one of the stronger performers in its class, the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer base model gets its power from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated for 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission routes power the rear wheels (AWD not available on the Lancer ES) and fuel economy ratings sit at 28 mpg combined (CVT) and 30 mpg combined (manual).

If it's all-wheel drive you're looking for, it will require an upgrade to the SE or SEL trim. But you'll get more than all-wheel drive. You'll also benefit from a more powerful 2.4-liter four cylinder engine that produces 168 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque.
