The Mitsubishi Evo has built up a cult following as a rally-bred performance car capable of astonishing acceleration and superb handling. The tenth incarnation, or X as Mitsubishi badges it, builds on this reputation but adds some much needed refinement and comfort.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4.5 out of 5

The Mitsubishi Evo has built up a cult following as a rally-bred performance car capable of astonishing acceleration and superb handling. The tenth incarnation, or X as Mitsubishi badges it, builds on this reputation but adds some much needed refinement and comfort. It's designed to be more stylish, sophisticated and grown-up - and consequently aims to tempt buyers considering the likes of the BMW M3. It's certainly better looking than previous models and much easier to live with everyday thanks to a softer ride and lighter steering. Plus for the first time there's the option of an automatic gearbox which includes steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts.

What owners say...

 I like the fact the wing mirrors fold in when you lock the car which is brilliant. But i love the radio. It does everything! CD/DVD/Sat Nav/Trip Computer etc etc its all in one!

 Interior space within the car. You can comfortably fit four adults in it.
