When we first saw this car a few years ago, we all hoped Mitsubishi would put the concept into production, and as of today Mitsubishi have confirmed the Sportback concept will join its lineup from 2008.

For those who have never seen the sportback concept before, yes it does look remarkably similar to the new Mitsubishi Lancer and the Evo X. It is more probable that Mitsubishi built the sportsback concept prior to the new Lancer and given the overwhelming positive reception, used the design cues for the new Lancer


As far as Europe is concerned, Mitsubishi will be offering a whole range of engines, starting from a 1.5-litre petrol all the way to the 2.0-litre turbo in the Galant Fortis and Evo X.


The engines will come with an option of five-speed, six-speed manual and CVT transmission. The Evo X is set to come with an optional DSG style gearbox, which will put it one level above its main rival, the new 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi.
