Mitsubishi Lancer Prototype-S will debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The 5-door Sportback uses new Evo X engine.
Oh Geneva my love, will you ever stop? Look at how Mitsubishi will make history on your turf in just a couple of weeks. Seems that hatchback Lancer, last seen in Prototype-S form, will be revealed as a staple for Geneva consumption. We have the first official internet-leaked images of what’s to come, and boy Subaru Impreza had better take note.
Likely to be referred to as a Sportback, the Lancer goes into market with a 180kW/ 241 bhp and 343Nm 2.0-litre engine, same as the Evo X’s but weakened to rival the likes of Focus ST, Mazda3 MPS and Astra OPC. The more direct rival of course is the Impreza WRX.
The combination of its 4WD system, as well as the SST twin clutch gearbox should make this a dragster of note in this class of car.
