It may start at only $15,695,1 but the 2012 Lancer gives up nothing in style or performance.
Its aggressive design sets it apart, while its powerful MIVEC engines, available All-Wheel
Control, and advanced transmissions put the road at your command. Go on. Step inside.
It’s hard to say no to a sedan that refuses to compromise.

Sure, the 2012 Lancer’s seven standard airbags3 helped make it a 2012 IIHS Top Safety
Pick for five years running. But with innovative features like available keyless entry and
hands-free controls for your phone and MP3 player, it’s easy to forget you’ve made a
rather responsible decision.
