Want an Evo?

Thinking about buying an Evo? Mitsubishi has cut prices across the Lancer range, including the aging-but-still-fun Evo range.  The Lancer Evo is $52,990 with manual transmission and $58,990 for the MR SST auto; but since you can get the brand new Subaru WRX STI for $49,990 in manual or $54,990 in for the Premium model, it’s hard to imagine a stampede to Mitsubishi’s doors.

The entry point is $18,990 for the Lancer ES Sport sedan, with a 110kW 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine, four-wheel independent suspension, 16-inch alloy wheels, climate control air-conditioning, Bluetooth hands free and audio streaming with voice control, seven airbags including front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags, and sports body kit with rear spoiler and side body skirts among its standard equipment.

Step up to $20,990 for the Lancer LS sedan, with a 6.1-inch full colour touch screen, reversing camera, Smart Key technology, and leather facing seats, heated front seats and power adjustable driver’s seat.

Replacing the Lancer VRX sedan is the new XLS, from $26,490.  It has a 125kW 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine, 9-speaker sound system, 7-inch full colour touch screen with 3D navigation mapping and SD card input, automatic rain sensing wipers, electro-chromatic rear view mirror, dusk sensing headlamps, electric foldable door mirrors, 18-inch alloy wheels and sports suspension.

The Lancer GSR Sportback, released in April, is powered by a 125kW 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine and features 18-inch alloy wheels, side air dams, rear sports spoiler, sports-style front seats and sports pedals.  It also has reversing camera, voice activated Bluetooth with audio streaming, climate control air-conditioning, privacy glass, Smart Key, rain sensing wipers, dusk sensing lamps, 6.1-inch full colour touch screen with iPod compatibility and rear view camera interface, from $21,990.

Automatic transmission is a $2,000 option across ES, LS and XLS sedan and GSR Sportback models.
