Although its appealing lines scream, "drive me," the real lure of the Lancer Evolution lies beneath the hood. Lancer Evolution's muscular MIVEC engine features an all-aluminum block and head for lighter weight and improved efficiency. It's also equipped with a semi-closed deck designed to withstand boost pressure supplied by a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries turbocharger that pushes performance off the charts. Add to that the combination of an efficient front-mounted intercooler (producing 291 horsepower from only 2 liters) and 300 lb-ft torque from under 3,000 to over 4,000 rpm—and you've the engine you're looking for. Step on it.
Mitsubishi's race-inspired technology isn't just reserved for accelerators. Known for supplying the world's best racing vehicles with their signature red calipers, Brembo® has equipped the Lancer Evolution with four-piston front calipers and two-piston rear calipers. For the MR, two-piece front rotors with aluminum rotor hats further reduce unsprung weight for better suspension performance when and where you need confidence most.
Because of our successful rally-racing heritage, Mitsubishi suspension technology has been real-world tested on some of the world's most difficult terrain. Here in the Lancer Evolution, decades of knowledge have been applied to create a street-smart and finely balanced suspension that's been there and done that. It's a suspension that begs to be thrown at corners. And a suspension that begs to be pushed to its limits. We invite you to take it out for a test drive.
There's nothing like the feeling of a totally responsive vehicle at your command. Which is just the experience Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) provides. A combination of Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control and Active Yaw Control, S-AWC directs engine torque to the outside or inside rear wheels depending on available traction, meaning the wheels with the most grip on the road receive the most power. In addition, three driver-selectable modes allow S-AWC to adapt to various driving surfaces on your command. The result is superior cornering, near-telepathic control, improved safety and a whole new kind of confidence in just about any weather or road condition.
If you're a driving fanatic, you've probably heard of RECARO® seats. If you haven't, well you're in for a pleasant surprise. The latest from a legend in racing seats, these semi-buckets provide excellent lateral support while cornering at speed—and long-term comfort for daily driving that simply can't be beat. Plus, airbags* are built right into the seats for an extra level of safety. Choose from a supple sports fabric or stunning leather upholstery.* Airbags are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear your seatbelt, sit upright in the middle of the seat and do not lean against the door. Always place children 12 and under in the rear seat and use appropriate child restraints. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat. See your owner's manual and instructions provided with your child restraint for additional information.
The FUSE Hands-Free Link System™ uses the power of Bluetooth® to give you complete voice control over your phone and music player. Make calls from your address book, play selected songs, and control other devices too—all while keeping your hands safely on the wheel.*The Bluetooth word mark and logos are owned by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by Mitsubishi is under license.

Heated leather seats. High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps. Rain-sensing windshield wipers. A Rockford Fosgate® audio system. Sunroof. And an eye-catching rear lip spoiler. With the Touring package, available for the GT and RALLIART, you'll go in comfort and style, no matter where the road takes you.
We believe in the quality, reliability and durability of the Mirage so much that we back it with a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. We also include a 5-year/60,000-mile fully transferable New Vehicle Basic Limited Warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty on the restraint system, a 7-year/100,000-mile Anti-Corrosion/Perforation Limited Warranty and 5-years/unlimited miles Roadside Assistance.
The standard Active Stability Control (ASC) system constantly monitors traction between the tires and the road. On detecting slippage or a loss of control, ASC alerts the control unit, which applies the brakes on individual wheels to help keep the vehicle moving in your intended direction.‡ Safety is a two-way street. It requires your attention and cooperation. Please remember to fasten your safety belt, drive responsibly and obey all traffic laws.
Stamped from a single piece of steel, the Lancer Evolution's chassis is built for the long run. And with engineered flexibility, it helps the suspension do its job. Attached to this impressive foundation are the aluminum roof, hood, front bumper beam and fenders that add strength while minimizing weight. And for better weight distribution, the battery and windshield-washer fluid tank are actually mounted in the trunk area. Overall, this platform is strong, light and balanced–just like a world-class athlete built for speed.
Only you and yours should be driving your Lancer Evolution, and our integrated anti-theft alarm system with immobilizer key intend to keep it that way. This thoughtful system automatically interrupts the power to many crucial electronic circuits when you walk away from your Lancer Evolution. So it's safe to say that the Lancer Evolution's security leaves car thieves feeling rather insecure.
As far as we're concerned, safety is first. And second and third, so on and so fourth. That's why in addition to the standard six airbags, we've also added a seventh under the steering wheel that stabilizes the driver's lower body and protects the knees in frontal collisions. Not just another Mitsubishi first, but a first in any compact sedan. Remember, it's safety in numbers.** Airbags are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
