Two petrol and one diesel version will be offered. The petrol options are fitted with a 1.5-litre and 1.8-litre motor with an output of 80 kW/109 hp and 105 kW/143 hp. The diesel engine is powered by a 2.0-litre 103 kW/140 hp unit.

Also to be unveiled in Paris is the Lancer Sportback Ralliart sports version with a 2.0-litre 177 kW/240 hp turbo engine.

First unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this year, the Lancer Sportback will also be sold in the United States. Mitsubishi has so far not revealed the sales price.
