Chester_moore, in fact, it is a nice version, but the thing, here are not all the drivers are looking at the engine or a speed-freak. Some are just contented with the stunning looks or approachable and presentable exterior. Like me, I always dreamed to have the grandest car, but now that I have the grandest, I still prefer the simplest.

I wonder if how it became a nice version of Lancer, for the fact that its engine is not so powerful. Well, I must say that I would still prefer the original Lancer than to this one.

It was such a nice version of Lancer, and I’m still impressed with its powerful engine, and I can say that it’s definitely looked so striking on its sleek body paint, but I’m quite curious on what will be the interior of it looks like.

Well, that nice! I have to agree that this one more of the traditional Mitsubishi and nothing is exceptional!

who modified this car? I can’t see any difference between this and the regular lancer. So what technology are they using for this car?It wasn’t mentioned here!

I’d rather The Evo keep the monopoly of the angry face, but now I’m okay with it being on the Outlander.

oh no... the evo x is looking like the Nissan gtr. or is it the other way around?

I wonder if potential customer attitude research showed a deficit in the intend to by category when compared to the STI - because of that hatch’s practicality.

IT looks better to me now then when I first saw it. I’d rather The Evo keep the monopoly of the angry face, but now I’m okay with it being on the Outlander.
