ah, I'll take one of those, and an 08STI so that I can turn my 04wagon into a rally car. I figure if I have both the evo wagon and new sti, I'll alternate days I drive them then I can do a real comparison for y'all public service, you know how it goes...

The front end looks like some badly drawn anime monster with its mouth open. Reminds me of the front of some of the VW models.

The seats look retro.

The article says its going to the EDM this fall and then possibly to the USDM.

Quote:
Mitsubishi sources in Europe told us the Lancer Sportback will be available with the same drivetrain as the soon-to-go-on-sale Lancer Ralliart, meaning the 4B11 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 235 bhp and 253 lb.-ft. of torque. It will also have full-time all-wheel drive and employ Mitsubishi's Active Center Differential (ACD) with three driver-programmable settings: Tarmac, Gravel and Snow.


For now, Mitsubishi doesn't have official plans to bring the Lancer Sportback to North America. But the company isn't ruling it out for the near future, especially with arch-rival Subaru's adoption of a 5-door bodystyle for the Impreza WRX and STI.

QuikWgn: Hell yeah it does! To think, I almost bought an Aztec because it was hideous enough for me to do so.




Hm...

Doesn't look that bad.

But unless there's any performance gains for being a wagon like the Sti, then it's a waste.

How innovative.

Who told Mitsubishi that hunchback pseudowagons were going to be trendy?

I guess if you repeat someone else's mistake you'll catch less flack when it fails.
