It’s been a while since we’ve heard about Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evolution and Ralliart models, so it comes as no surprise that there have been few updates to the cars since the launch of the current generation Lancer back in 2007.
That doesn’t mean the Lancer models aren’t worth a close look as they still offer loads of performance for relatively little money. Yes, the Mitsubishis are considered performance legends to many, especially those in the tuner scene.
For example, take the Lancer Evolution, or Evo as it’s known to fans. Now in its 10th generation, the car is based on Mitsubishi’s former world rally car and packs a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine spitting out 291 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. This potent engine is matched to either a standard six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch unit, and thanks to all-wheel-drive traction can propel the Lancer Evolution from 0-60 mph in under 5.0 seconds.
