Mitsubishi has revealed images of its Prototype-S sportback before its official global unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show on March 4.
The Japanese manufacturer said the prototype is a close preview the forthcoming Lancer Sportback which will go into production.
The Prototype-S uses a variation of Lancer’s trademark “jet fighter” grille featuring a full matt black finish, mesh inserts and chrome surround.
Other distinguishing features include a Lancer Evolution X style bonnet, Prototype-S specific headlamps and 19-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.
The five-door hatchback variant will be launched later this year and Mitsubishi says it will represent 80% of the forecasted Lancer volume in the UK.
