ALUMINUM FRONT FENDERS AND HOOD
Consisting of aluminum front fenders with air outlets, an aluminum hood with air vents and an aluminum roof panel, these strong yet lightweight body panels lower both the Lancer Evolution’s body weight and its center of gravity for improved weight distribution, balance and handling. Plus, the vented hood and front fenders work together to pull heat from the engine compartment, which optimizes cooling and performance. So they not only look cool, they help the Evolution keep its cool-even in the most demanding conditions.
ACTIVE YAW CONTROL
Active Yaw Control (AYC) varies engine torque between the left and right rear wheels to give the Lancer Evolution precise traction and handling in just about any condition. Utilizing numerous vehicle sensors to detect cornering speed, lateral acceleration, steering angle and more, AYC instantly directs torque to the rear wheels with the most traction at any given moment for unparalleled cornering, acceleration, performance and control.
2.0L TURBOCHARGED MIVEC ENGINE
Combining a 2.0-liter all-aluminum block and head with a powerful turbocharger and advanced MIVEC technology, the Lancer Evolution boasts 291 horsepower – 303 hp on the Final Edition – and the kind of performance that eats bigger, thirstier V6s for breakfast.
RESPONSIVE SPORT-TUNED HANDLING
The true test of any performance car is how it feels in the corners. From track-inspired rack-and-pinion steering to available Eibach® springs and Blistein® shocks to a fine-tuned MacPherson strut front- and multi-link rear suspension, the Lancer Evolution sets a new standard for stock performance.
TWIN CLUTCH SST TRANSMISSION
