2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

What We Like

Very fast; incredible handling thanks to sophisticated all-wheel-drive system; nicely executed dual-clutch automated manual transmission; lots of performance for the price

What We Don't

Noisy engine; stiff ride; cheap interior for the price; steering wheel doesn't telescope; poor fuel economy for a 4-cylinder engine; tiny trunk

Overview

What's New in the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution?

The 2015 Evo unfortunately loses its Recaro front seats for arcane regulatory reasons, but the MR trim adds standard Rockford Fosgate audio and a few other desirable features. 

Which Lancer Evolution is the Best?

As noted, we like the automatic in the Evo, so our choice would be the MR model. It doesn't hurt that the MR ditches the GSR's obnoxious (we think) rear wing. Find a Mitsubishi Lancer for sale

 

How Much Does a 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Cost?

The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution sedan is offered in GSR and MR trim levels.

The GSR ($35,305) features a 5-speed manual transmission, 18-inch Enkei alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, a large rear spoiler, heated mirrors, a leather-wrapped tilt-only steering wheel, a color trip computer, cruise control, automatic climate control, Mitsubishi's Fuse voice-command system for phones and music devices, and a 6-speaker audio system with a 6.1-in touchscreen, USB/Bluetooth integration and an auxiliary input.

The MR ($39,805) steps up to a 6-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission, automatic xenon headlamps, 18-in BBS alloy wheels, Eibach springs, Bilstein struts and a subtle rear lip spoiler (instead of the GSR's huge wing). It also receives some formerly optional features as standard for 2015, including a 710-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system, keyless entry/start and rain-sensing wipers.

Options include a sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats and a hard-drive-based navigation system with a 7-in touchscreen and music storage.

Like every Lancer, the Evo has an unusually accommodating back seat for a compact car. Its trunk is shockingly small, though, measuring a roadster-like 6.9 cu ft.

Safety

Is the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution a Safe Car?

The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, active front head restraints and seven airbags (front, front-side, driver-knee, full-length side-curtain).

The Evo hasn't been crash-tested, but the ordinary Lancer sedan received an overall score of four stars out of five in government crash-testing, including four stars each for frontal and side impacts. The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the regular Lancer its highest rating of Good in all tested categories except the small-overlap front crash test, where the Lancer was judged Acceptable (second-highest).

Competition

2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution vs the competition

2015 Subaru WRX -- The 2015 WRX isn't that far behind the Evo in terms of power, and it's a much better value. We recommend it over the Evo's natural rival, the pricey WRX STI.

2015 Ford Mustang GT -- The V8-powered Mustang GT has plenty of get-up-and-go, and it has a grown-up interior that puts the Evo's to shame.

2015 BMW 2 Series -- BMW's do-it-all compact coupe offers impeccable handling, an upscale cabin and a choice of two stellar engines.

Used Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution -- Truth be told, the Evo hasn't fundamentally changed in many years, so a used example could save you a lot of coin without setting you back a bit in terms of performance.
