During my latest trip, I borrowed a 2014 Lancer GT while I was in San Francisco for a conference with Search Engine Journal and Searchmetrics. I thought the Lancer was a great choice because it gets pretty good gas mileage and was able to fit into small spaces that my regular daily driver (a Chevy Equinox) may not be able to navigate.
This was my first time driving in San Francisco, so I was a little nervous, as the traffic is much more hectic than the Kansas City Metro is, where I’m used to driving.
However, I can honestly say because the Lancer GT had some “get up and go” (as my grandmother would say) and was a compact sedan, I was able to conduct efficient lane changes and made it through the streets of San Francisco (and beyond) with no troubles at all.
Besides the outside styling, one of the things I liked best about the Lancer GT was the navigation and entertainment system. The Sirius XM radio was fun to use as we navigated the highways surrounding the Bay Area and I also liked being able to use its navigation system, instead of having to rely on my phone, which uses up a lot of battery life.
While navigating, the system also shows you points of interest along the way (like a restaurant or gas station), so you can stop if you need to (or just feel like it).
One day, my friends I was staying with and my husband went up to the Lagunitas brewery in Petaluma, CA, about a 40 minute drive from where we were staying in San Rafael, CA (across the bay from San Francisco). It was a lovely drive and everyone enjoyed the smooth ride.
Overall, the Mitsubishi Lancer GT was perfect for my trip!
