2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Review

The 2012 Lancer. Everything your lifestyle requires including the fun. Lancer Sportback GTS has a flexible 168 horsepower 2.4 liter MIVEC engine. RALLIART takes a page from the Lancer Evolution playbook with a 237 horsepower MIVEC turbo engine with a stout semi closed aluminum block and front mounted intercooler. Lancer’s comfy adjustable buckets seats coddle you. The 40 gig Navigation system features an industry first Diamond Lane Guidance System. Other features like Bluetooth Fast Key and an available 710 watt Rockford Fosgate System thrill you with every turn. Sportback’s cavernous cargo area you wont have to leave anything behind. GTS’ dual level cargo floor drops down for extra space providing a cargo capacity of 52.7 cubic feet. Seven Airbags Active Stability Control 4 wheel disc brakes with ABS and ESB and outstanding crash test performance are the foundation of Lancers Safety initiatives. The 2012 Lancer Sportback THE SPORTS CAR THAT’S INTO WHATEVER YOU’RE INTO.
