1992 Eagle Summit.jpg

Mitsubishi Lancer/Eagle Summit (CA/CB). 1988–95 (prod. n/a). 4- and 5-door sedan. F/F, F/A, 1299, 1468, 1755 cm³ petrol, 1796 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 1595, 1796 cm³ (I4 DOHC). More rounded Lancer, apeing the style of the larger Galant. Attractive, compact design, balancing the aerodynamic era with sportiness and formality. Four-door sedan replaced in 1991, though liftback, not dissimilar in style to Toyota Celica (T160), continued into the next generation. Wagons from previous generation sold alongside this series. Built in the US as Eagle Summit. Good ride, and decent power from DOHC units.
