Fun Toy! — There's no other under $50k car that does all the things that real drivers want to do. The double clutch, paddle shifters and rev matcher is amazing and compares well to the GTR. In fact, I call the Evo X, a poor man's GTR.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Can't help wanting to drive fast especially in the mountains. Carves turns like cutting butter.  Great fun to drive and I love the double clutch and SAWD.  Plenty of room in the back seat.  Great in the snow.

Cons: Low rent materials in the interior.  Engine sounds like an over reved vacuum cleaner.  Could use another 50whp and the car is a bit overweight.

Camryn says:
Unreal handling and stability. Love the design. Interior is simple other than the recaros that come stock,but you buy an evo for the engine and drivetrain.

2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR Review
Kyle says:
The Evo will always have the best handling car in my opinion but the the front of the car is not my taste. The dual clutch auto is awesome but I would look for an Evo 8 or 9 before I bought a X.

Looks/Style Ranked 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX Base better.
"I feel both cars being born from the rally world that they should look like a rally car. I felt the WRX did a better job with the big fender flares and hood scoop."
Front Seats Ranked 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX Base better.
"The Evo front seats felt more boxy and wide. The WRX were also more open style but looked more like a traditional Recaro seat."
