2007 Mitsubishi Evo IX MR Review – Inside Line

Inside Line drove the 2007 Mitsubishi Evo IX MR recently, and absolutely fell in love. Here’s a snippet – ‘When we let loose this newest Evo IX on the track, its performance was jaw-dropping. Hit the brakes hard and feel the front four-piston Brembo calipers do their work, match the engine revs to bring this clean-shifting six-speed transmission down into 2nd gear, cut the steering wheel toward the corner, and whoa the Evo IX pivots sharply toward the apex.’

I’ve never been a fan of the Evo personally. In fact, I hate the styling of both the Evo and it’s cross town rival, the Subaru WRX STI. They’re just not my cup of tea – they look like boy-racer mobiles, and I’m just not interested. However, 286 HP and 289 lb-ft of torque make me stand up and take notice, no matter how ugly the package.
