Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Review

This high-performance version of Mistubishi's sporty Lancer sedan combines an athletic turbocharged inline-4 with sharp handling and road-hugging all-wheel drive for a ride that has inspired a cult-like following of car enthusiasts dedicated to all things Evo. While Mitsubishi may emphasize the drive, passengers will also appreciate the Lancer Evolution's wealth of creature comforts, which include a hands-free link system with USB, 140-watt CD/mp3 sound system and color multi-information display.
