Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Is Close To Release

 

19th June, 2008

Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation will unveil, for the first time at a motor show, the Lancer Sportback at the Le Mondial de l'Automobile 2008 (2008 Paris Motor Show) being held in Halls 1-8 of the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles from Saturday 4th October, 2008 through Sunday 19th October, 2008. The Lancer Sportback will have its European launch later this year with a phased introduction into the various countries in the region.

The company will also be displaying the Lancer Ralliart and Lancer Sportback Ralliart models that are based on the Lancer sports sedan and Lancer Sportback. These models are powered by a turbocharged engine matched to Mitsubishi's Twin Clutch SST (Sport Shift Transmission) and delivering power to all four wheels through an Active Centre Differential.

With its inverted-slant nose and trapezoidal grille that defines the Mitsubishi Motors design identity the sporty Lancer Sportback is a 5-door sport hatchback, a body type that is very popular throughout the world. The model is available in versions powered by 1.5-litre (109 PS) or 1.8-litre (143 PS) petrol engines or by a 2.0-litre (140 PS) turbo diesel engine. The Lancer Sportback offers an "auto-folding function" which enhances luggage compartment convenience through adjustable rear floor height and rear seatbacks that can be tipped forward via a lever located in the luggage compartment. The series is due to be joined by a model powered by Mitsubishi Motors' new diesel engine in (northern )spring of 2009.

Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback

The Lancer Ralliart and Lancer Sportback Ralliart models use a new turbocharged 2-litre 4-cylinder DOHC MIVEC engine [maximum output 177 kW (240 PS), maximum torque 343 Nm (35 kgm)]. This is matched to Mitsubishi's high-efficiency Twin Clutch SST transmission with an Active Centre Differential, for extremely responsive steering and traction through tailoring the amount of torque fed to each wheel to optimally suit driving conditions. Also helping to significantly raise the basic performance attributes of these cars over the Lancer base model are 2-pot caliper front brakes and a larger brake master cylinder.

The new Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback will be coming to Australia and it is sure to secure even more success for the highly regarded Lancer nameplate.
