Pros

nothing takes turns like an evo. I own two of them. With just a few bolt ons and flashing the ecu you will have more power than most can handle.

Cons

bad turning radius. it turns like a school bus.

Best Car Ever Engineered — Stock from the factory it has a weak tune. If you plug in a flash encoder, to flash the ecu, you will get an extra 20 horsepower. The turning radius is hilarious, you could pull a narrower uturn in a school bus. The reason for that is that the engineers crammed so much underneath the hood, so still a worthy sacrifice

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Lancer Evolution Mr — This is a fantastic car that handles like a dream. It has enough horsepower to get out of your own way. The style, color, community, appeal, and passion is what this car is all about. It is truly a drivers car.

If Your Gonna Buy One You Need To Invest Another 4-5k On Better Parts To Make This Car A Real Evo. — This car is the worst car ive ever had in my life!! It's overated, drinks more fuel than a Bugatti Veyron, acceleration in 1st is so slow that when I bought it I acctually took it back to the garage thinking there was something wrong with it! For some strange reason Mitsubishi thought it would be a good idea to go back to the eighties and fit it with a 5 speed gearbox. Visibilty in this car is the worst ive ever experienced...the front stantions have airbags and the mirror units are huge, meaning at junctions you cannot see left or right (not joking either). This car isnt worthy of being called an "EVO" its too heavy (300kg heavier than the previous model) and that blunts accelaration. It also has a twin exit exhaust (from a 4-1 branch manifold) which saps power and sound! turbo cars need to breathe easy at the exit of the exhaust otherwise the unburnt turbo gases ignite in the backbox, hence while every EVO X looks like its had its backbox set on fire. This car has been thrown together to compete with BMW and Audi in the European market, but has failed because of lack of attention to detail. Shame because its a real head turner...

Great family car with all the options for comfort and yet able to offroad!

Cons

When the rear seats are up to creat more space a blind spot is created.

This Is A 2007 Mitsubishi D5 Delica Premium G — This car has got to be one of the best performing off-road vehicles ever! On the fly to 4wd switch. DS drive with belt drive transmission powered by a high power 2.4l engine. Paddle shift on the wheel. 18 inch alloy rims and low profile tires. All the bells and whistles with power everything including power sliding doors on both sides as well as the ower back hatch. Keyless entry and ignition. 12 Speaker Rockford Fozgate system powered by an 860 Watt Amp! Dual DVD players in the front and rear (8 inch monitor in the front and 9 inch in the rear). 4 cameras for view of the rear and side and fromt when in tight areas or parking areas.

'08 Evo X — Ford has the Mustang, BMW has the M3, and Mitsubishi has the Evo. Pros: Power, Handling, Braking. Cons: Average fuel mileage and 93 octane required means quite pricy at the pump but can be increased by tunes and driving habits (the latter might be hard to do.)

10 Out Of 10 — Most amazing car I've ever owned and driven! It's the ultimate affordable driver's car. Wonderful AWD system, and the confidence I gave me while I drove it. To this day I have troubles descibing the way this car mad me feel.

Very Good Performence Car. Espeically If You Are A "track" Guy. — Performance- Good acceleration from 3500RPM to 4400RPM(torque peak), the 4B11 is a aluminum block that provides good power. Not a high speed car due to the lack of aero-dynamics. Braking is awesome thanks to the large brembo brake system. Handling is by far the best feature of this car. The super all wheel drive/active yaw control is the main feature of this car, it corners like no other. You don't have to be a race driver to drive this car.

Great Enthusiast Vehicle To Own! — At a 43k plus sticker price it was a tough buy but you will definitely feel why once you drive it. Out of the box "race car" that can keep up with much higher priced track contenders! Much more refined than the last generations but if road noise and ride comfort is at the top of your list, then you may shy away from what this car has to offer!

Pros

Pros- beats anything off the line comes with nice breaks you can lose cops pretty easy i'd imagine it's comfy and roomy ...something about a built in sub? you can mod the computer for 35 more horse it doesn't chirp the tires ever usually

Cons

It's expensive it's very plain jane on the inside It has a very wimpy trany, trust me tops out at 263kmph heavy clutch umm.....it doesn't have sun roof on the gsr lastly the spoiler in the rear view sucks because usually everyone will end up behind you so if you wanted to see all those mustangs, chargers and other silly american cars you zip by, it will be a little tougher to see them.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution — Maker of Fast Moving in all Directions SAWD, yup Super all wheel drive. 3 different active control systems not to mention 3 different sensitivities. Can you take turns over 100kmph? haha, can you slide around at 100kmph in the gravel? Is it way better looking then the subaru competition? Yep, and for the record, the engine sound is not weak, it's very modest and I like how it's soft because I do a lot of relax driving and loud engines are sweet if u can turn them down sometimes. Overall: not your first manual car, clutches will wreck. Also the car's acd asc and ayc systems allow you to way beyond your capabilities. You might feel in less control as a professional driver but that's when you can push your boundaries as well, the car will correct your mistakes. As a rookie driver, I wouldn't recommend this car but for seasoned racers or conditioned reckless drivers, this car makes for a safe thrill every time....oh yah, don't forget that you need to change your rubbers for the season.
