The Lancer Sportback boasts an all-aluminum 2.0-Litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 148 horsepower and a highly economical 5.9L/100 km on the highway. The Mitsubishi’s Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) engine optimizes valve timing at every speed, providing the ideal balance of power and fuel efficiency.
Lancer Sportback’s sporty suspension combines MacPherson struts in front with a multi-link suspension in the rear to deliver the perfect blend of road-hugging handling and a comfortable ride. So whether you’re driving up a twisty mountain road or just avoiding the potholes on your way to work, the Lancer Sportback always stays smooth, solid and responsive.
In place of the gears you’ll find in a traditional automatic, the Lancer Sportback’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) uses an efficient belt system that continually adjusts the gear ratio to keep its engine running at the ideal RPM. This not only results in optimum performance at every speed, it also helps the Lancer Sportback deliver exceptional fuel efficiency. And because it’s designed with our intelligent INVECS-III control system, this CVT actually learns your driving style and can anticipate your every move for seamless power and responsive acceleration.
Every time you sit behind the wheel of the Lancer Sportback, prepare to be captivated by a powerful audio performance delivered through the available 710-watt Rockford Fosgate® Punch® Display Premium Audio system.

The iPod® or MP3 compatible CD player with 9 speakers, including a 10-inch subwoofer, plus digital signal processor, speed- compensated volume and equalization, delivers clear, audible sound that is as imposing as prime seating in your favourite concert hall. And with available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio with six months complimentary subscription included, you’ll never be left wanting for more. Driving the 2014 Lancer Sportback delivers performances that will literally be music to your ears.

Active Stability Control (ASC) and Traction Control Logic (TCL) employ a series of sensors that constantly monitor the grip of each tire. If a wheel begins to slip, ASC and TCL automatically communicate with the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) to apply the brakes to the wheels with the most traction, helping you maintain control of the vehicle in just about any situation.
Lancer Sportback’s Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) is designed to improve control under the most demanding conditions. ABS delivers several brake pulses per second, while EBD automatically shifts braking force between the front and rear axles on an instant-by-instant basis. Working together, they help minimize lockups and skidding, even when you’re stopping and turning simultaneously.
