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. The base model equips a 2.0l four cylinder. The GT has an upgraded 2.4L engine and 18-inch wheels.

What Changed:

The Ralliart model and manual transmissions are dropped. The lineup consists of the ES and the GT (formerly GTS).
