The Lancer competes against other small sedans like the Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Mazda3, and there's a high-performance Ralliart trim level.
The Lancer Ralliart bears some resemblance to the high-power Lancer Evolution and features a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, Mitsubishi's twin-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.
