Yea the styling is controversial. However the new S-AWC system blows suby outta the water. The test videos on ice fields are awesome.

if they would lower the rear and change the shape of the hood it would look a whole lot better. but being someone who has a below the knee amputation on my left leg and cant work a clutch the Evo X and its paddleshifters are a gift from heaven.

Theres a much more recent version of what's supposed to be the REAL production of it. It's a dark blue, looks better than that pic. I'll see if I can find it.

This is the latest press release from mitsu:

"Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) will introduce, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, the all-new, 2008 Lancer compact sport sedan, delivering driven-to-thrill dynamics, "class-up" value, advanced safety and available cutting-edge user-technology in an aggressively styled package. The new-generation Lancer models arrive in Mitsubishi dealerships in early 2007.

The 2008 Lancer brings the bold, dynamic lines of the show-stopping Mitsubishi Concept-X to the showroom. First shown in 2005, the stunning Concept X previewed not only the next generation Mitsubishi compact sport sedan, but also a new design language to convey an unmistakable brand identity. A "shark-nosed" front end inspired by jet fighter air intakes, a distinct wedge-like profile and crisp, taut lines highlight the Lancer's exciting new design.

The 2008 Lancer is based on a new performance-engineered global platform that also forms the foundation of the new Mitsubishi Outlander SUV. It has a longer wheelbase and wider track, but slightly shorter overall length than the previous model. All Lancer models are powered by an all-new 2.0-liter 152 hp aluminum DOHC MIVEC 4-cylinder engine (143 hp PZEV in Calif.) teamed to a 5-speed manual transmission. The new Lancer is the first Mitsubishi in North America to offer an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT). When equipped with the CVT, the Lancer GTS exclusively features a 6-step Sportronic(R) mode using magnesium steering wheel paddle shifters.

The 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer will be available in three levels of trim and driving dynamics: DE, ES and the sport-tuned GTS. "


152hp :jerkoff: However the production front end looks much better than the X concept

Never really looked at teh IX spoiler, but in any case I think just a normal height spoiler would do justice this time around. The one that is on it in those press photos looks like the SRT-4's.
