Upgrades in safety equipment and a revamped front fascia characterize the 2006 Lancer, a compact sedan.

Mitsubishi casts Lancer in three editions. Two trims pull from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that nets 120 hp and connects to a five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic. Lancer ES is the base issue, with Lancer O-Z Rally wearing sporty body additions inspired by rally racers. Lancer Ralliart draws on Lancer Evolution for styling and brings more hardware, such as a taut-tuned suspension, sport bucket seats and larg er disc brakes, and more power from a 2.4-liter four with 162 hp.

A Sun & Sound package for OZ and Ralliart installs a power glass sunroof, 315-watt Infinity audio system and seat-mounted side air bags, while the Convenience Package for Lancer ES adds a remote keyless entry device, cruise control, variable wipers and rear seatback split 60/40 with armrest and cupholders added.

The marque of Mitsubishi mounts on four different cars in 2006 for the North American market plus three sport-utility vehicles and a new mid-size truck. Eclipse, the sporty 2+2 coupe, pops out of Mitsubishi's Illinois assembly plant in a bold new design this year, while the truck -- called Raider -- rolls out of a DaimlerChrysler factory in Michigan with V8 power plus Extended Cab and Double Cab versions.
