Mitsubishi to show off Lancer Sportback

Mitsubishi to show off Lancer Sportback


To be shown at the 2008 Geneva Auto Show, and probably reserved only for the hatchback-loving European market, Mitsubishi is going to show a “concept” hatchack version of the new Lancer. Seen here are leaked early images.


The Sportback concept looks to be a near-production version, except for fancy lights and rims. This particular version has the Ralliart 2.0-litre turbo engine, packing 236 hp and 343 Nm.


It is probably intended as a direct competitor to the Subaru Impreza WRX, which recently lost its ass and became a hatchback.


What do you think?



  1. It looks a lot like the ford mondeo hatch..whats with hatches these days..why do manufacturers wanna make a hatch option of every car.
    Its a desperate attempt to sell cars..its like once theres a buyer in the showroom he cant complain of not like the shape..or space..theres a model/shape to fit evey need.

    What ever happened to true breed.
