The 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer is available in four trim levels- ES, SE, GT and Ralliart. The base DE trim level is no longer offered. The entry level ES includes standard equipment like 16-inch steel wheels, auto on/off head lamps, power everything, AC, cruise, a four-speaker sound system with steering wheel audio controls, and an auxiliary audio jack. A wheel package is available that will add 16-inch alloy wheels and rear disc brakes. From there you can also opt for a Deluxe package that will get you a sunroof, push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, and an upgraded sound system with voice activated features.

Stepping up to the SE will add a more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with all-wheel drive, 16-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, a touchscreen interface, rearview camera, and heated front seats. Options include a sunroof, Bluetooth, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a premium nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system.

Opting for the sporty GT will get you the more powerful engine however it deletes the all-wheel drive. It receives equipment from the ES model plus 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps, a rear spoiler, a sport-tuned suspension, push-button start, shifter paddles, automatic climate control, sporty front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, review camera, touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, and the six-speaker sound system.  An available Touring package will add creature comforts such as heated seats and leather upholstery. It will also add features such as rain-sensing wipers, the nine-speaker premium sound system, a sunroof, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The Ralliart gets a turbocharged engine, shifter paddles, dual exhaust, a sport tuned suspension and most of the features that come standard on the GT model. The Touring package from the GT model is also available on the Ralliart.

Prices for the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer start at just $17,195 and quickly climbs to over $36 grand for fully loaded top trims.
