A lot of cars get a lot of that right, some even do it better than can the Mitsu — certainly there are cars that are grippier or faster to accelerate, and tons of cars have far more impressive top-end speed. Overall, the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is a rollercoaster on wheels. Over the course of the last few years, it's very possible that I've driven the Evo more — more trims and individual test cars, in more driving situations, if not more miles — than any other single vehicle.
I really like this Evo. Roads over which, with snow seeping melt water onto the low corners and steeply pitched downhill lefthanders flowing through to short straights over bridges and small hills, the Evo X is a titan. It's a singular automotive thing, as well as a very good-to-drive, very fast thing. Owners may contact Mitsubishi at 1-888-648-7820. Those wanting something slightly more subtle may opt for the pristine Apex Silver or Cosmic Blue finishes. Even with a light touch on the throttle thanks to my splitting headache , I was just able to beat 20 miles per gallon on my almost-all-highway-driving round trip of 350 miles.

The dealership was attractive and clean, and everyone was friendly and welcoming from the receptionist to the finance manager.

New for 2013 There are no significant changes for 2013. Finally, an engine tune was also made to the Evo X, increasing the output of the car to 353 horsepower and 359 pound-feet of torque.
