I wish that Edmunds would have been fair on the review of the Lancer GT Sportback.
Maybe they can explain why no Data is shown for performance times and braking distances.
While I do agree that the CVT Trans feels different, why don't we let the performance numbers do the talking.
If you want the vehicle to feel like a normal transmission just use the auto stick or the paddles and you will feel right at home. The car rides firm but smooth, the brakes are excellant, the back seat room destroys the competition, the cargo area with the rear seats down is class leading. Warranty is GREAT and the number one reason to buy a GT is of course its great looks!!! and you won't see one at every light
If you want an Audi but want to spend 20K this is the car.
Warranty blows away Ford and Mazda
Hands free and Blue tooth are sweet
Stereo sounds awesome
Interior is large and comfortable for a car in this class.
Hatchback blends styling with practicality
Road test the Lancer GT Sportback, the Mazda 3 and the Ford Focus just as I did, the GT Sportback blows them away except in MPG, a small price to pay for a great looking, fun to drive car at great price.
Mileage is good not great
Deeper sounding exhaust
If Mitsubishi wants to sell a bunch of the GT Sportback all they have to do is advertise it, no one knows the car even exiists. The beauty of the body style, warranty and handling will sell itself.
