2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback: Handsome Sports Sedan with Family-Friendly Utility

With its sleek design and convenient utility, the Mitsubishi Motors’ tried and true 5-door Lancer Sportback returns for the 2013 model year as the perfect choice for performance car enthusiasts and young families alike.

This uniquely-configured, yet handsomely-styled vehicle in the popular Lancer family is available in two distinct trim levels: the entry-level ES and the athletic GT. The Lancer Sportback ES comes wîth an efficient 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC 16-valve engine that achieves 32 highway mpg, while the sportier Lancer Sportback GT is equipped wîth a 2.4-liter inline-four engine that produces 168 hp and 167 lb.-ft of torque.

2013 Lancer Sportback ES

The 2013 Lancer Sportback ES is an exceptional value within the 5-door compact sedan §egmènt, thanks to an efficient yet peppy 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC 16-valve engine paired wîth an advanced Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that achieves a welcome 32 highway mpg. A dazzling array of standard features including a 4 speaker 140-watt CD/MP3 player wîth Digital Signal Processing (DSP) for crisp and clear listening enjoyment; air conditioning wîth micron cabin air filter; variable intermittent windshield wipers; auto-off halogen headlights; and additional conveniences like plug-in Thule® roof rack sockets, a remote keyless entry system and a 60/40 split rear seat wîth cargo area release lever; power windows, mirrors and door locks; and much more are also included.

2013 Lancer Sportback GT

Powered by a dynamic 2.4-liter MIVEC engine that belts out a full 168 horsepower that is connected to a technically advanced Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) wîth Sportronic® driver-operated paddle shifters, the 2013 Lancer Sportback GT includes other feature upgrades like a sport-tuned suspension; automatic air conditioning climate control; 6 speaker sound system that includes Mitsubishi Motors’ innovative FÚSE Handsfree Link System™ wîth ÚSB port that allows users to operate numerous functions of the audio system and an iPod™ through the use of simple voice commands; FAST-Key entry and engine starting wîth panic alarm feature; a leather-wrapped §teering wheel plus much more.

Available upgrade packages for the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback include an Exterior Package that consists of a front air dam, exhaust finisher and fog lights; an Interior Sport Package wîth aluminum shift knob and brake grip; an LED Illumination Package that augments the Lancer Sportback’s already attractive interior wîth blue front floor illumination and LED interior lamps; an All Weather Package wîth rear mudguards, front all-weather floor mats and the convenience of remote engine start; and the Popular Equipment Package that adds niceties like a trunk mat, scuff plates, rear bumper protector and an alloy fuel door.

Ample Interior Útility Space

With comfortable seating for five and a taller, longer stance that extends to deliver more rear cargo space, the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback offers incredible utility for a sports sedan. (concept carz) With the rear seats up, this spacious hatchback offers 13.8 cu. ft. of cargo volume, which is 1.5 cu. ft. more than the Lancer sedan’s 12.3 cu. ft. For additional cargo space, the auto-folding 60:40-split rear seats fold completely flat wîth one touch for an area totaling 46.6. cu. ft. If that isn’t enough, the rear cargo area floor can be lowered three inches, expanding cargo volume to 15.3 cu. ft. wîth the rear seats up and a full 52.7 cu. ft. wîth the rear seats folded down.

Inspired Lancer Looks

The Lancer Sportback inherits its good looks from the rally racing-inspired Lancer sedan and adds a more spacious cargo area through its 5-door configuration. Únlike many hatchbacks whose rear sides form a clunky wedge, the Sportback retains the smooth and sporty aesthetic from the Lancer 4-door, its rear glass sloping graciously to accommodate for the expanded rear cargo space. Other athletic exterior design features on the Lancer Sportback include an integrated roof wing and distinctive wrap-around taillights.

Two Potent 4-Cylinder Engines

The 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback comes wîth two very capable yet fuel-efficient engine variants – both based on the 4B11 engine architecture found under the aluminum hood of the vibrant Lancer Evolution model. The ES model engine produces 148 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 145 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,200 rpm from its 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC 16-valve inline-4 wîth a compression ratio of 10.0:1 (the compression ration of the turbocharged 4B11 T/C in the Lancer Evolution is 9.0:1).

The Lancer Sportback GT features a larger displacement 2.4-liter inline-4 engine (internally designated the 4B12 engine) that is capable of 168 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 167 lb.-ft of torque at 4,100 rpm wîth a higher compression ratio of 10.5:1.

Like the engine that propels the lightning-quick Lancer Evolution, both the Sportback ES and GT 4-cylinder engines make use of lightweight yet sturdy all-aluminum construction for both the engine block and cylinder head. Likewise, both engines are capable of running on less expensive 87 octane fuel. (concept carz)

Both the 2013 Lancer Sportback ES and GT model engines include Mitsubishi Motors’ very efficient Continuously-Variable Transmission (CVT). The CVT transmission has been designed and engineered by Mitsubishi wîth INVEC-III technology to provide smooth shifts wîth minimal vibration.

EPA fuel mileage ratings are 25 mpg city/32 mpg highway for the 2.0-liter-equipped Lancer Sportback ES and 23 mpg city/29 mpg highway for the 2.4-liter-equipped Lancer Sportback GT.
