Mitsubishi has pulled off the wraps from 2015 Lancer Evo.
The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, which has been discontinued in every market apart from the United States, feature few changes from its earlier model. Apart from heated side mirrors with integrated side indicators on the outside and a new cup holder with a lid on the inside there is nothing to speak of really. For the final launch of such an iconic model it is unfortunate that the company did not work on some out-of-the-box or over-the-top idea and informed the press with a bunch of black and white images.
Saying this, the Lancer Evo was always a very serious car and the first choice of countless customers across the world when they wanted a nice fast car with good handling at an affordable price.
The base version, Evo GSR, now comes with a Premium Package which adds electronic sunroof, leather upholstery, added sound insulation, heated front seats and a few other features. The standard kit continues with the 6.1 inch touchscreen, leather wrapped steering wheel, USB and hands-free connectivity, Brembo brakes on the 18 inch wheels and a six speaker music system.
The Evo MR model on the other hand will get xenon lights, Bilstein shock absorbers with Eibach springs, nine speaker Rockford Fosgate music system and a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
Mitsubishi`s Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC), dubbed as one of the best all-wheel drive systems in the world, increases the degree of traction and performance to an unimaginable stage. The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo has three traction modes: Tarmac, Snow and Gravel. The S-AWC works with the help of various components to deliver such a high performance: Sport ABS, Active Stability Control, center differential and Active Yaw Control.
The pedigree of the Lancer Evo is bred since the past 10 generations and is honed and perfected with every new launch. Four World Rally Championship titles in a row with “Flying Finn” Tommi Makinen behind the wheel spell highly of the capability and technology of the car.
With no plans for a successor in the near future this is the end of the road for the Lancer Evo. The prices for the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo have not been announced but all we can say is, this is the last chance to get your hands on one; so go and get one rather than regretting it for the rest of your life.
