2010 mitsubishi lancer Professional Edmunds Review
Source: Edmunds

...The Ralliart is rated at 17 city/25 highway and 20 combined. Safety: The 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer comes standard with front-seat side airbags, full-length head curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag. Antilock brakes and stability control are standard across the board, as are four-wheel disc brakes. In our testing, a Lancer GTS stopped from 60 mph in a scant 115 feet. In government crash testing, the Lancer received a five-star rating for driver frontal crash protection and front-seat side crash protection. It got four stars for passenger frontal crash protection and for rear-seat side...

...Air conditioning is optional for the base Lancer. New odor-absorbing headliner New, optional chrome accents Optional heated leather seats Optional rain-sensing wipers Optional sound-deadening windshield glass Under the Hood There are a variety of engine and transmission choices.

CarGurus' Review for 2010 mitsubishi lancer evolution
Source: CarGurus

...The 2010 Evolution is a strong performer that needs little to be a great contender.
No one expects a plush ride from a machine such as this, but there are still issues that hold the Evolution back from really standing in the same class as the WRX, for example.
The Ralliart offers a better compromise without the harshness or the steep pricetag of the Evolution – it’s simply a better buy...

...Fuel economy is subpar for this class. The GTS with the CVT is rated at 21 mpg city/27 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined, while the manual version rates 20/27/22. The Ralliart is rated at 17 city/25 highway and 20 combined. Safety: The 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback comes standard with front-seat side airbags, full-length head curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, antilock four-wheel disc brakes and stability control. In our braking tests, a Lancer GTS sedan stopped from 60 mph in a scant 115 feet; the hatchback's performance should be similar. In government frontal impact crash testing, the...

2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Professional Review
Source: controls on the steering wheel Optional Rockford Fosgate audio system Optional navigation system Under the Hood The Lancer Evolution's optional twin-clutch automated manual works much like Volkswagen's DSG gearbox, with the next gear at hand as soon as the previous gear is released. This is designed to produce lightning-fast shifts, which are performed automatically or with paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The transmission offers three shift programs: Normal, Sport and S-Sport. Sport holds lower gears longer and shifts more quickly than Normal, while S-Sport optimizes performance...

2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Professional Review

...the shape of the car still determines to some extent what you can fit into the cargo area. With the Sportback, some of those restrictions aren't there because of its open cargo area, which has a maximum volume of 52.7 cubic feet. Available features include a Rockford Fosgate audio system, navigation system and Recaro sport seats. Under the Hood Front-wheel-drive GTS models are powered by a 168-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder that works with a five-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission, which includes shift paddles on the steering wheel. The all-wheel-drive...

Flash Drive: 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Sportback

...Don't be deceived by the additional practicality; the Ralliart Sportback still packs a punch with its 237-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. The Ralliart Sportback is so quick, precise and downright fast that it's a challenge not to switch into boy racer mode every time you slide behind the wheel — it's just so much more capable than most of the other vehicles on the road. If you're looking for a sports car but need to be practical, the Lancer Ralliart might just be the perfect combination. —Mike MeredithThe Lancer Sportback Ralliart is for those who like to have their cake and eat...

2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Professional Review

...If you accidently cycle past AM, for example, you have to press the button a bunch of times to get back to it. As for materials and the quality of the controls, the Lancer Sportback is closer to the best among compact cars than it is to the worst. There are a few instances of low-grade-looking plastic — like the grab handles for closing the doors — but they don't notably diminish what Mitsubishi has done overall, which is craft an appealing interior for its compact car. Our test car came with optional heated leather front seats. The bucket seats have sizable side bolsters to keep you in...

2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Professional Review

...Details not fully developed Inside was almost as uninspiring. The dash included giant swaths of resin. The three plastic silver knobs in the center that control the heat and air conditioning looked like they might snap off if you turned them too hard. There's a cheap silver veneer about the trim that is distracting. Everything seems to be in the right place, but the Lancer feels like a "good enough" design inside. If the details were fully developed, it could be nice. But Mitsubishi never takes that last step to complete it. One annoying feature Mitsubishi offers is two RCA jacks at the base...

...A five-door with a styling edge and excitement under the hood, the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback debuts with a splash.
Despite some drawbacks (mileage, interior charm) the Sportback is worth a look if you want a versatile vehicle with plenty of spark...
