Discover the 2012 Lancer Sportback, and discover a sporty five-door that gives you more
of everything you want. Featuring a choice of power plants designed around Mitsubishi’s
innovative MIVEC technology, it’s powerful, yet fuel efficient. Factor in available Sportronic®
shifting with magnesium paddle shifters and up to 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space, and you’ll
see that it’s practical, yet fun to drive. And with a host of standard features such as keyless
entry and a 140-watt CD/MP3 audio system at a price that starts at just $18,395,1 this is one
seriously loaded ride that’s seriously affordable, too.

The Lancer Sportback exudes confidence, no matter what you throw at it.
Planning a weekend camping trip? Standard plug-in Thule® roof rack sockets
and one-touch folding rear seats give you plenty of options for whatever you
want to take along. Ready for a night on the town? Its distinctive European
styling gives it a sporty sophistication that makes you stand out in a crowd.
But no matter where you go, you’ll appreciate the Lancer Sportback’s seven
standard airbags2 and available hands-free system that lets you keep your
hands safely on the wheel—even while making calls or choosing your favorite
tunes. Because at Mitsubishi, safety is the most important element of all.
