NHTSA CRASH TEST RESULTS
Overall Safety Rating

Frontal crash ratings:
Driver: *  *  *  *  Passenger: *  *  *  * 

Side crash ratings:
Driver: *  *  Rear Passenger: *  *  *  * 

Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA ROLLOVER RESISTANCE RATING: *  *  *  * 

The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Review
"A smaller lineup and an additional high-performance model top the 2005 updates to Mitsubishi's smallest cars. All Lancers are sedans and use 4-cyl engines. Wagon versions have been dropped for '05. A 120-hp 2.0-liter powers the two least-expensive models: the ES and O-Z Rally. Last year's LS versions have been dropped. A 162-hp 2.4 powers the Ralliart models, and all these Lancers have front-wheel drive. The high-performance Evolution models--RS, VIII, and new-for-'05 MR--have all-wheel drive and a turbocharged 2.0-liter. For '05, all Evos have 276 hp, up 5. Automatic transmission is available for the ES, O-Z, and Ralliart models. All others have a 5-speed manual transmission except the Evolution MR, which has a 6-speed.

ABS is included on Ralliarts and Evos, not available on other Lancers. Front side airbags are available for O-Z and Ralliart models. The O-Z includes 15-inch O-Z racing-brand alloy wheels, aero body add-ons, and metal-look interior accents. Ralliarts feature 16-inch alloys, sport-tuned suspension, Evo-style front seats, and unique trim. Evolutions have 17-inch alloys, plus cosmetics and suspension tuning inspired by rallye-racing Evos. For 2005, the original Evo is redubbed Evolution VIII. The MR adds xenon headlights and pares pounds with an aluminum roof panel and lightweight BBS-brand forged-alloy wheels. The RS has less equipment and a lower price vs. the Evo VIII and saves weight with thinner body sheetmetal and rear glass. All Evos have a limited-slip front differential and a new center differential with electronic instead of mechanical control, changes Mitsubishi says improve AWD responsiveness."
