Overview Information

The Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback is a 5-door variant of the Lancer sedan that replaces the trunk with a small hatchback. The Lancer Sportback is Mitsubishi's answer to the Mazda Mazda3 5d, Subaru Impreza wagon, and Toyota Corolla Matrix. Thanks to the Lancer Evolution, all Lancers are solidly constructed cars with a more substantial feel than the Japanese competition. Unlike the sedan, the base trim level is the GTS, which has the upgraded 2.4L engine and 18-inch wheels. A Ralliart model bridges the gap between the Lancer and the Lancer Evolution. With a 237-bhp turbo and all-wheel-drive, the Ralliart is an alternative to the Subaru Impreza WRX or Mazdaspeed3 but at a stiff price premium.
