What are the Engine Options for the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer

Although the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer and 2017 Volkswagen Jetta are very similar in overall size, the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer is outfitted with two different engine options that make the compact sedan very efficient—yet fun to drive.

The base option is a 148 horsepower 2.0L I-4 DOHC engine, which is able to attain an estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer models outfitted with this engine have a 15.5-gallon fuel tank.

For a little more attitude, there is a 168 horsepower 2.4L I-4 DOHC engine. Models that have this engine will sport a smaller fuel tank (14.5 gallons), but can still take you to far-off places with fewer fill-ups. Thanks to the estimated 23 mpg-city/30 mpg-highway fuel economy, the compact sedan may be able to cover as much as 435 highway miles.
