Everything you'd expect.

by Caesium from Baltimore, MD on Thu Apr 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 Thu May 04 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.

Smiles per gallon

by DanWho87 from Gaithersburg on Mon Mar 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?

Great performance sedan

by FWDtoAWD from Hartford,CT on Tue Aug 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.

The real weapons x

by Metal yaj from Twin cities, MN on Thu Oct 06 2016

Everything about this machine is true, it ride n handle like not thing else. Thanks to Japanese people for making super good cars for affordable prices n thanks to myself for getting me one. A pieces of history evo X. Own one n u will become a better driver, it make u into a better driver. This evo is fast in the MN winter n the rest of the season, it eat it like nothing. 15's evo don't have recaro seat but it still ride like it in rail. It worth every penn, get ur self one b 4 it gone.

Once competitive - Now a dinosaur

by Old School from Portland, Oregon on Tue Aug 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.

Fun car, daily driven.

by DaveOPomeroy from Pomeroy Ohio on Sun Mar 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.

Fastest car ive ever driven

by Jgendre1 from Omaha on Mon May 14 2018

This thing is a rocketship. The launch control on the MR version feels like your in a fighter jet. And dont even get me started on the handling. I cant think of anything short of a Nissan GTR or a Lambo that could corner better than this monster. Seriously cant recommend this car enough.

Best Car Ever

by 2015EVOxFE from on Mon 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.

Our Take on the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Editor's note: This review was written in November 2013 about the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Little of substance has changed with this year's model. To see what's new for 2015, click here, or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.

Mitsubishi's 2014 Lancer Evolution is a bully of a sports sedan that's unconcerned if your back is sore and unapologetic if the groceries don't fit, but it's fast and fun on the track.

That's not news for the Evolution, the current generation of which is relatively unchanged in its seventh model year — a long time in automotive years. Unlike the regular Lancer compact sedan, the turbocharged Evolution is no grocery-getter, even with four... Read More
