By Derek Mau

First Impressions:

  • Mitsubishi’s All-Wheel Control System rules!
  • Automatic shifting of the 6-speed twin-clutch transmission is sooo very smooth
  • Racer-bling — real Recaro sport seats, 18 inch forged BBS wheels, and Brembo brake kit

  • Rockford-Fosgate audio system is pretty dang loud

Verdict: The Evo X is fast and loves to be driven hard

Mitsubishi has stepped up its game with the Lancer Evolution MR. Fans of the Lancer Evo and new followers will appreciate the 291 hp turbocharged, 2.0 liter, 4-cylinder mated to a new Getrag six-speed twin-clutch “TC-SST” transmission that delivers power to all four wheels.
