The market for Japanese turbocharged all wheel drive sport compact cars will forever be dominated by the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and the Subaru Impreza WRX STI.
These cars were introduced to the U.S. enthusiasts long before either manufacturer decided to bring their cars stateside thanks to videogames like Gran Turismo.
However as the Playstation generation grows up these daily driven rally cars must do so as well.
Just like Subaru came out with the leather wrapped much more refined STI Limited back at the New York Auto Show in 2007, Mitsubishi is suppressing the attitude of their wild winged wonder in order to create an EVO MR Touring model.
Just like the STI, this EVO exchanges its oversized aerofoil for a subtle trunk spoiler that massively tones down the EVO X’s appearance.
