Last Updated: 05 Feb 2014
Mitsubishi actually carried out fewer changes in progressing to the Evo IX than when evolving from Evo VIII to Evo VIII MR, however this will be the final development of thieve IX. The visible changes consist of subtle alterations with new front intercooler ducts, a rear under-bumper diffuser, new lights front and rear and a change of wheel design.

Running costs

In pure performance terms its represents a bargain compared to the likes of Porsche or Ferrari, but for a family saloon car it's running costs are steep. It can munch expensive super sticky tyres in under 5000 miles, needs servicing every 4500 miles, runs on super unleaded fuel and sits in the most expensive insurance category. You'll probably also want to take it to the race track.

With its powerful 2.0-litre petrol engines, Lancer Evo IX returns just 16mpg - so it's no surprise that it performs so badly on the eco front. It emits 334 g/km CO2, which is high compared to an average family car, but fairly standard for a quick sports saloon.
