Detroit Auto Show: Mitsubishi to Build Turbodiesel Lancer

As Edmunds reports, Mitsubishi's planning Lancer powered by a common-rail turbodiesel, which uses a variable diffuser to vary compressor flow, reducing lag. The engine's being developed for the European market with parent Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. No specs yet, and no plans likely for an Evo diesel, though some joker at Gale Banks is probably already planning a kit.
