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.

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.
