A five-speed manual is the standard dance partner to the MIVEC motor, with a four-speed automatic as an option.

Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is also equipped with front helical limited slip differential and a rear differential mechanical limited slip differential.
Elaborating on the basic sporty design and proportions of the Lancer, the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart exterior is distinguished by its more aggressively styled front bumper design, rear bumper cover, dual outlet muffler and a lightweight aluminum, ducted hood that delivers cooling air to the turbocharger.
The family man may have a hard time taking the kids to school in the Ralliart without the sports car ride giving them scoliosis, but it is the perfect sports car that can fit a few friends with relative ease.
For starters, the engine is a version borrowed from the Evo X. This 2.0-liter unit only has single scroll turbocharger instead of the Evo’s twin-scroll, so it’s down 54 hp to a still respectable 237.
Lancer Ralliart is also equipped with front helical limited slip differential and a rear differential mechanical limited slip differential.
The ACD unit employs an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch center differential, vectoring drive torque to the front and rear according to different driving conditions to realize the best balance between steering response and traction characteristics on Tarmac, Gravel, or Snow surfaces.

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart

AutomobileMag News
Take the narrow-body Lancer, add Mitsubishi's dual-clutch SST gearbox from the EVO, mix in a turbocharged four-cylinder engine developing an estimated 235 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque, add the all-wheel-drive system from the now departed EVO IX and you have the Lancer Ralliart.
The newest WRX is a bit of a disappointment (at least in non-STI guise) so we think the Lancer Ralliart is an excellent opportunity for Mitsubishi to steal sales from Subaru, as long as buyers don't care about a manual transmission.
