Final Edition Evo X
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.
