Evo X Gsr — Performance is best you can get for the money. Best handling and most solid Evo yet. Amazing tunability. If you look at this beast wrong she will gain 15whp. I Plan to keep her as civil as possible for now but in a few years she will turn into a track monster.

Pros: Looks, Driving Experiance

Cons: Not enough tracks close by

Evo X Treme — This new evolution is agressive and gorgeous. Im not gonna brag but seriously just driving down any road most people move out of your way thinking its an exotic. With a well designed exterior and a lavish interior there is no subtitute for this magnificant machine. peronaly the only thing id change about this ride is the recardo seats back to the concept version. you cant go wronge with carbonfiber backs and intigrated lcd screens a suade dash board and a wide body kit

Pros: agressive design, faster then your dads prsche 911 twin turbo

Cons: should have stayed with the concept version

Evo X Mr Ftw — Well I just got an Evo X MR and when I test drove it it was amazingly quick. A few things I like about the car is that the turbo starts to spool at only 3000 RPM so it launches pretty quick. Its appearance it's nice and looks really good. The interior is much better then the Evo IX's because it has more creature comforts like the seats are now very comfortable and they gave it a gentler suspension. The most useful feature of the Evo X MR that I can see so far is the gear box. Now I know must people think automatics suck ass and to be honest 9 times out of 10 I would be forced to agree, but this is that 1 time out of 10 that I am going to go out on a limb and say this gear box is better then the manual.

Pros: Fast, amazing twin clutch g ear box, easy to tune, and fun out of the box

Cons: Transmission as of right now is limited to 350 ft/lbs of torque, price was 41.7k, gas tanks is small, and the milage could be better.

Ummm It Gets Me From Point A To Point B —

This car defines what you are able to do in a car. The Lancer evolution X is the 10th version of this model. When it was released it showed that mitsubishi had taken this evo to a more refined version wanting to get a bigger segment of the market and not just for harcore car addicts. I was a little skeptical of how redefined it would be and whether or not it would be worthy of the evolution badge. I spent about 7 months of research on this car usually during boring classes at u of c. Needless to say I wasn't expecting this much love for the car at that time as I have for it now. In those 7 months of research I looked at many cars from the infiniti g37 to the bmw 335i. I test drove most of the cars I looked at and was pleasently surprised at how equally I liked them, yet how plain the drive was; all except one the lancer evolution x. I was not able to test drive it because it simply had not be built and released in North America. All I could do was watch countless videos of the car and think how it would drive. 7 months later and I was able to test drive the car finally. I instantly knew this was the car I wanted. Even though it doesn't have the BMW badge or the navigation system of the infiniti g37 it didn't matter. This brings us to today, the car loves the ground especially because of the super all wheel control which combines the the active skid control and active yaw control to create a car that would make any idiot driving look like a race car driver. Just point where you want this car to go and it will go. It's 300 HP turbocharged 2.0 liter engine also gives me the ability to do a lane change whenever I want ;) There are however somethings I would not miss. One of them being the paint that Mitsubishi uses. The car comes stock with sticky tires that hug it to the road which makes rock chips a normal thing that often hits the rocker panel. The paint chips really easily and as a result I have had to 3m the rocker panel to keep it from looking like it a machine gun tore threw it. The interior is ok but definitively not bmw. Overall though the cars performance definitely beats out its con's. This car is definitely something that everyone should test drive or ride in to understand what I have said.

Pros: You have to drive one or ride in one to understand the Pros of this car.

Cons: The interior isn't the nicest and the paint sucks for rock chips, pricing is not the best either when compared to the US for the same model.

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
