Car of the Week - November 5, 2001

2002 Toyota Tundra


The 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer will replace the Mirage - in name, and in many other more important ways. First, size. A 102.4-inch wheelbase make it one of the largest in its class. It has also been made more solid and rigid for improved handling - and better crash test results. We tested the O-Z Rally edition with its 15-inch wheels, ground effects, white-faced gauges, embroidered floor mats, and rear spoiler.


The most excited responses we got as we drove around Northern California came from young males - they liked the look - a good sign for any company trying to compete with Toyota and Honda. The automatic provides driver-adaptive technology - tailoring shift points according to the driver. The manual got 29/41 mpg city/highway and is a ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEV) to boot. In the market for a small sedan? Check out the new Lancer.
