Overview of the Mitsubishi Evolution

Learn about the Mitsubishi Evolution


The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution was the Japanese brand's racer-inspired road warrior. Underneath the slightly anonymous looks were the guts of an all-wheel drive race car.

Despite its four-door sedan shape, the Lancer Evolution was not what you'd call a family cruiser. It boasted a powerful turbocharged engine and sharp handling and came with either a five-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Not many features or design elements changed over the course of its production from 2008 to 2015, but that's because the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution knew its crowd: performance enthusiasts.
