Next-gen: Redesigned Lancer hatch lurks within Concept-Sportback.

Mitsubishi previews its redesigned Lancer via the Concept-Sportback in Melbourne

THE next-generation Lancer sedan and hatch are still many months away from Aussie shores, but that didn't stop Mitsubishi Motors Australia from using Friday’s Melbourne motor show opening to present an Australian debut for the Concept-Sportback - the show car that will essentially become the all-new hatch version.

The Concept-Sportback was created by Mitsubishi Design Europe’s exterior chief designer Omer Halilhodzic and his team, based in Germany.
