Mitsubishi can bring a new life back to the Lancer Evolution sport sedan

In the Mitsubishi guide, they are thinking about the release of a new generation of Lancer Evolution sports sedan.

So informs the publication Autocar. They also write that the novelty will get a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged unit, which is made based on the next generation Renault Megane RS engine.

By the way, the current French "charged" hatchback is the fastest front-wheel-drive Nurburgring car. The car is driven by a 1.8-liter 300-horsepower "turbo-four" with 400 Nm of peak torque.

Most likely, in the 2.0-liter engine, the future Lancer Evolution will use the turbine on the electric drive, which can be power from the 48-volt onboard network. The return will make at the level of 345 horsepower and 433 Nm. They will be giving a 7-speed "robot" with two clutches, plus an improved S-AWC all-wheel-drive system.
