Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback
Mitsubishi launch the Lancer Sportback model just after Proton annouce their Inspira will be on sales by November 2010, is it due to Inspira is taking the Lancer initial body that let Mitsubishi need to come up with a special Sportback designed to attract Lancer lover.
In the earlier Lancer which there are power by 2.0L DOHC MIVEC 4B11 engine, which Mitsubishi had stated that the original engine of Lancer is using 4B12 2.4L in Japan, it is due to the Malaysia petrol fuel specification didn't reach the RON99 which it require by the 4B12 engine, it decided to downgrade the engine to 4B11 in Malaysia market.
But it seem the Lancer Sportback model is power by 2.4L DOHC MIVEC engine which it should be 4B12 kind of engine, is it the technical problem on the fuel quality of Malaysia which highest is RON97 only already overcome by their engineer, will the RON97 made the engine lifespan more shorter compare to those using the RON99?
