In the continuing war of the Japanese rally-styled road cars the Evo beats Subaru's Impreza in looks and individuality. Performance-wise they're evenly matched but most people seem to fall into one camp or the other (if they can live with the leery looks at all).

Running costs

The performance is impressive for the money and it'll hold its value quite well, but insurance, fuel and tyres are going to wake you up in the middle of the night in a sweat. Very short service intervals means only enthusiasts are tempted to buy.

Emissions summary

With its powerful 2.0-litre petrol engines, the Lancer Evo VIII returns just 21mpg - so it's no surprise that it performs so badly on the eco front. It emits 324 g/km CO2, which is high compared to an average family car, but fairly standard for a quick sports saloon.
