Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback: possibly fast, still very homely

Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.

Paris Motor Show 2008 With Subaru launching a sedan version of its Impreza, it's not surprising that Mitsubishi now has a hatchback version of the Lancer.

Mitsubishi launched its current Lancer range — including the turned-up-to-11 Evolution — in sedan form. Arch-rival Subaru, however, returned fire in Australia with its hatchback-only Impreza. A year or so on, with Subaru having brought a sedan version of the Impreza down under, there's now a hatchback version of the Lancer on the horizon.

In Ralliart or Evolution trim it'll be crazily fast. Good thing too because, like the Impreza hatch, it's an awkward looking object.
