Car Tech Video: Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback

0:49 /

At the 2008 Paris auto show, Mitsubishi unveiled its new five-door Lancer, which should turn heads in the U.S. market.

[ Sound effects ] ^M00:00:12 >> If you want that hot Lancer but you also want it to be hotly practical, here you go. A new 5 door sport-back body style we think is coming to the US and could be optioned up in the Rally Art trim to have a 2 liter turbo that puts out 250 plus foot pounds of torque, one of Mitsubishi's delightful Twin Clutch SST Automated Manual. Now, going head to head with arch rival the Subaru Impreza is the name of the game here and to our eye the 5 door Mitsu looks about as homely as the Subi it's up against, so at least that's a draw. ^M00:00:44 [ Music ]
