    Neutered Version Of The Ix. Save Some Cash, Get An Evo Ix. — A much more civilized version, it is not as pure as the IX. Bigger, heavier, and less attractive, it doesn't really feel like an evolution from the old generation. Engine, however, is very nice, given that it doesn't have the same aggressive feel of the aged 4G63. The turbo spools quicker and the car has very good response, but doesn't have the same sort of kick that you can get from the IX. You only need to tap the throttle to put down a lot of gas, I found that as I tapped the throttle to begin moving, the engine speed jumped to 4000, whereas a small tap on the IX MR I own would only bring up the throttle to around 2000. It is easier to drive on the highway because the turbo spools much more easily; I could accelerate from 60-80 in fifth gear more quickly because the turbo kicked in sooner, whereas the IX needs to be around 3000 RPM before the turbo will spool quickly. On the whole, it is a more softened generation that is supposed to make it less of a teenage-boy car, but because of it the car loses much of its character.

    Pros: Steering wheel feel is more sturdy, more drivable on the street with its new engine. Not many other pros, cause the IX is better. Possibly more roomy interior. New styling makes the interior feel more "luxurious," but the IX's is functional and good looking, even if it's not spectacular.

    Cons: Felt slightly less stable under high speeds (maybe just cause I was test driving), you don't begin to feel the speed as soon on the IX. Clutch WAY too soft. Possibly one of the softest clutches I have ever felt. Sight lines are not as good. Styling issue-the older Evo's look much nicer, especially the rear end of the Evo X, which looks almost identical to the normal Lancer. Recaros are a little tight around the thighs (mind you, I have the skinniest legs). Pedal location is poor, it's off center and gas pedal placement is too far to the center of the car. It is physically impossible to heel-toe with the heel of your foot on the gas pedal; your right leg hits the center console.

    One Of Mitsubishi's Best — Fun, whole lot more RPMs to play with, opposed to it's Subaru counterpart (STI) but overall, I would take the STI

    Pros: 3000 more RPMs to play with

    Cons: cost, cost, parts cost....

    Evolution — Very Quick, poised, balances well around corners and has a more up-class interior with respect to its earlier editions.

    Pros: Sharp looks, drives hard and handles well on the edge.

    Cons: A little too soft for a breed of performance cars

    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.

    Pros: 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.
