The concept is powered by a new high-output, high-efficiency clean diesel engine mated to the carmaker’s brilliant Twin Clutch SST automated manual transmission and S-AWC vehicle dynamics control system. The driveline also gets Active Steering and Active Damper control systems as already featured in the Lancer Evolution as well as an upgraded sports braking system.
Under the hood sits a 2.2L four-cylinder turbodiesel with MIVEC valve control, piezoelectric injectors and a variable geometry turbo. Maximum output stands at 200hp (150kW) and 420Nm of torque. For compliance with Tier 2 Bin 5 emission regulations in the United States, the clean power unit also uses a new catalytic converter system.
