I didn't not like it.
My boyfriend gives me a hard time for using that phrase, but that about sums it all up. I don't have negative feelings about the Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback. But I didn't have overwhelmingly positive ones either.
It was a 5-speed manual transmission with a stiff-ish clutch and a smooth shifter. It drove pretty well and was relatively comfortable. A decent car with a base price of $19,190. But in my head, I can't help comparing it to the Mazda3 5-door ($20,290), which is sportier, and the Subaru Impreza WRX ($24,995), which is more attractive and comes standard with AWD.
In comparison, the Lancer Sportback seems a little bland. Anyone out there own one, like one, had one? Would love to hear another opinion on this car and why you think it might (or might not...) win out over the Mazda3 and the WRX.
