Vehicle Spotlight on the 2017 Lancer Sportback

The Lancer is the cornerstone of the Mitsubishi vehicle roster. Over the last few years, Mitsubishi has pushed away from a cult vehicle brand, they’ve relied on the Lancer to bridge the gap. It’s a vehicle that spawned an evolution, and it continues to change both the industry and evolve itself. And while the Lancer is the backbone of the3 Mitsubishi brand, it’s not afraid of a little change.

Introducing the all-new 2017 Lancer Sportback.


What’s Different?

First and foremost, the overall look has gone through a radical shift, particularly at the back end. The Sportback uses a European inspired design, with some added flair in the form of a hatchback. Dawning a unique silhouette, the Lancer Sportback provides more cargo than your typical Lancer vehicle, using a 5 Door hatchback design, and a spacious trunk with easy access from both inside the cabin and the rear door. With 60/40 split-fold seats and a dual-level cargo floor, the Lancer Sportback offers more interior space than any vehicle in its class. The Lancer Sportback features a colour-keyed rear spoiler that adds a flash of style and aerodynamics. It’s versatile while also offering a specifically Mitsubishi take of the hatchback sedan.


What’s the Same?

Thankfully, the Lancer itself is already a spectacular vehicle. The Sportback offers some new innovations, as well as some additions to the design that make it different enough to feel both like it’s vehicle, while also being part of the Lancer family. Like the Lancer, the Sportback has 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque out of a 2.0 I4DOHC 16 valve MiVEC engine. It has a CVT-8 transmission, and Mitsubishi crafted handling, which makes it one of the most dynamic drives you’ll ever experience. It also offers the Rockford Fosgate audio system as well as being backed by Mitsubishi’s 10-year warranty.
