Our week with the Lancer Sportback Ralliart had the to be a great one. A wagon of the standard Lancer Ralliart, itself is a detuned Lancer X, the Lancer Sportback Ralliart is than capable of fulfilling road rally fantasies we

Being a detuned Evo, the Lancer Sportback Ralliart get the fancy aluminum body and pieces, the extra chassis or all the differentials and traction assist of its Evo brother — but there is a lot of stuff to be found here. a quick glance at this wagon and you’ll find a 4B11T engine (detuned to a six-speed TC-SST dual transmission, a full-time all-wheel system with Active Yaw and a more aggressive suspension and package.

Outside of a slight bit of turbo lag now and the Sportback Ralliart’s acceleration is described as immediate and brutal. struggle to keep heads as the Ralliart gains speed, ever faster as the paddle-shift, gearbox swaps cogs in the of an eye.

The steering is so communicative as to be telepathic, drivers to repeatedly … and relish the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart’s seemingly endless of grip. Stop-right-now brakes things to an abrupt and safe should things somehow get out of

The Lancer Sportback Ralliart is when it’s running at speed and, on the flip it’s miserable when forced to slow down. lag increases, the too-sensitive steering tiresome and the suspension becomes and uncomfortable. Most noticeably, the transmission seems to lose all of logic and will change as if it still had its learner’s permit.

Sometimes the transmission will up way too early, taking the engine out of its other times it won’t at all, letting the engine on the rev limiter.

All the driver interface points solid, robust and purposeful, and as who always complain about being too shallow and wide, the and narrow Recaros were than welcome.

But those who care less about will find much to about. Not everyone wants to get by (or can fit in) a racing seat. The dash has a design and seems to be put together but given the fact that the is a $28,000 car, the plastics and fit look a bit cheap in places.

With its harshness, and lack of refinement, it’s to recommend the Lancer Sportback to almost anyone. It’s a car for who want the Evo experience but need space, or more likely, afford the $10K premium. But for in search of a good time with a dash of practicality, hard to find better.
