Everything you'd expect.

by Caesium from Baltimore, MD on April 23, 2015

The car handles superbly in all conditions. I've owned a lot of performance cars and this one from the factory feels a bit slow and just generally sluggish to me. Anyone wanted to invest some time on upgrading the overall power will really enjoy this car much more as i feel it's more of an enthusiast car and for the price there are certainly many more powerful cars to choose from, that being said you can't beat the braking, handling and general feel of this car.

Phenomenal weekend car/track car if you want!

by Chek from San francisco on May 4, 2017

Evo's are always known for their Superior handling! You can experience this in the track or in the backroads. This is not for a beginner driver! You gotta have the skills and maturity to drive this bad boy otherwise you'll end up in the ditch.

Great performance sedan

by FWDtoAWD from Hartford,CT on August 22, 2017

This car gets hit on for being old and it is, but it is still relevant to the newest sedan/hatchback market and it hasn't been produced since 2015. It shows how far ahead Mitsubishi was with this when it came out in 2007/8. I daily this car(no mods) and it is great and the improvements to the previous generation evo 8/9 I had are seen everywhere. It handles and steers great with better day to day comfort. It is a car that can put a smile on your face whether your in the passenger seat or the driver seat in just daily driving. The downsides are few when you remember the evo x started as a small basic transportation vehicle. The interior is often hit as not current, but it easy to maintain/clean and the seating position is perfect for my 5'11 frame. The seats of the 2015 are not recaros, but they are really comfortable in the daily driving. The recaros especially leather are hard and not comfortable on long drives. If you are looking for 4 doors and the ability to carry up to 5 passangers with awd you shouldn't overlook the Evolution X.

Smiles per gallon

by DanWho87 from Gaithersburg on March 26, 2018

This car, is a joy to drive. It’s very quick, handles beautifully, the styling is classic to those of the rally cars that we all adore. The steering and the gear box are analog and provide a very intense driving experience. The 303hp, turbocharged engine helps this car get to from 0 - pulled over in about 4.2seconds. The AWD system, with an active rear differential, makes for a well balanced and exceptionally well handling car. It will brighten your day, how can you not smile when the boost comes in?

Once competitive - Now a dinosaur

by Old School from Portland, Oregon on August 18, 2015

The 'Evo' was once a competitive sport seder with strong acceleration and sure handling. Over the years Mitsubishi has failed to keep pace with their automotive line and are now over priced dinosaurs. For the same money I could have (and should have) purchased a low mileage used Porsche, a new WRX STI, or for less money a new Mustang, Camaro SS or Audi TT. All can be had for less dollars and will run circles around the 'Evo." The interior is bland as is the old technology in this car. The stereo speakers rattle as do the vents in the dash. Bottom line, there is a reason Mitsubishi motors is selling off assets and leaving the U.S. market. I rate this car as average for a so called sports sedan and a poor value to purchase. Gas mileage hovers around 15mpg and the warranty is void if " the dealer or manufacturer feels you drove the car hard and abused it". Really??? The dealer will not repair the rattling vents or stereo speakers either.

Best Car Ever

by 2015EVOxFE from on May 15, 2017

This is by far the best vehicle I've ever purchased. Everyone needs to drive an Evo X at least once in their lives. You feel like a teenager who just got their licences. You just can't help but to punch the gas and rip through the gears as if you're trying to race every car you get close to. This car is excellent from interior to exterior.

Fun car, daily driven.

by DaveOPomeroy from Pomeroy Ohio on March 25, 2018

Quick acceleration, needed a 6th gear. The interior design wasn't bad, Mitsubishi should have used better materials for the dash. Factory audio isn't bad if you don't max out your head units volume. Changing it all out was a breeze.

Final Edition Evo X

by Erv813 from Charleston, West Virginia on August 18, 2017

Fantastic drivers car, handles extremely well. This car is rev happy, it has great pull for a stock car. The car feels really strong for what it is. I am an official believer now in the Evo. The all wheel drive system is strange though in direct comparison to the STi it does not provide same level of confidence. You kind of have to just believe in it through a corner. The all wheel drive system definitely works and is a great system, it just has a mind of its own sometimes. Rightfully so because it is an active all wheel drive system. Overall the functionality of the car is proven and in my opinion great. The interior on the other hand I'm disappointed in Mitsubishi for sending this car off like this. Really awesome Recaro's that were in previous years of the model and that they put non USDM models would have been appreciated. Also a leather option and an improved sound system. I feel like the U.S. got the short end of the stick, a lot of other countries got all the above mentioned options in this model if I'm not mistaken minus the leather. But I know I was considering going to Canada to purchase one because of that, until I found out that Canadian cars are technically import cars so 25 year rule applies. Mitsubishi was kind enough to us the important stuff the slight bump in power, upgraded Bilstein suspension, two piece rotors up front. I got the upgraded strut tower brace and the engine appearance package, they both add nice look to the engine bay. I've owned this car for over a year not daily driven more of a weekend warrior and its a iconic car for a reason. Its combination of looks performance and price make it an excellent car and would make a great daily driver. The suspension is a little firm but livable and gives plenty of confidence through corners. Overall this is an excellent and proven platform really unfortunate Mitsubishi couldn't afford to produce anymore. This platform as far as modifying goes is an great platform to modify. The engine loves to make power, if done the right way and of course tuned by a professional. The weak links in the system are the transfer case and the transmission. These will need to be reinforced if you planning to modify and most definitely for high horsepower. If running the car stock be aware and know what your doing keep launches at minimum if any at all. In conclusion one the best machines I've driven, for what it is and at that price range.
