The heart and soul of any performance car is its engine. The Lancer Evolution’s raw power is delivered through its advanced 2.0-litre MIVEC engine that features an all-aluminum block, dual overhead cams and an innovative turbocharger. The intercooled twin-scroll turbocharger incorporates a titanium turbine wheel that boosts power to 291 HP @ 6,500 RPM and 300 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4,000 RPM.
Perfected from our decades-long racing heritage, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as shifting through the gears of the GSR’s short-throw 5-speed manual transmission. Or choose the Twin Clutch Sportronic® Shift Transmission (TC-SST) in the MR, and you’ll get the connectivity and efficiency of a manual gearbox along with remarkably smooth, blink-of-an-eye-quick automatic shifting. Choose from Normal, Sport or S-Sport to select automated shift points that match your driving style, or take full control using the sequential shifter or magnesium paddle shifters. Whichever transmission you choose, the Lancer Evolution gives you a truly hands-on experience.
To produce incredible handling, the Lancer Evolution adopts a proven front MacPherson strut and rear multi-link suspension layout, enhanced by world-renowned Bilstein® shock absorbers and Eibach® coil springs all around to control wheel movement with absolute precision. Front and rear stabilizer bars, a front strut brace, extensive use of aluminum and rigid attachment to the car’s structure ensure excellent on-road handling characteristics, improved ride comfort and very sure-footed cornering performance. Available on GSR and standard on MR.
With over 30 years of racing competition experience, Brembo® is the only brand worthy to feature on the Lancer Evolution. To rein in the power of the Lancer Evolution, the front sports 350 mm ventilated discs with 4-piston callipers, while the rear houses 330 mm discs with opposed 2-piston callipers. Braking is enhanced even further for the Lancer Evolution MR with 350 mm ventilated 2-piece rotors at the front for better heat dissipation. Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) makes sure that each wheel has the maximum possible braking power available at all times.
The 2014 Lancer Evolution looks fantastic from every angle, inside and out. The contemporary interior provides the perfect blend of style, functionality and comfort. The driver-focused dashboard provides ideal ergonomics with sporting appearance, allowing you to enjoy the superb drive. High-contrast instruments keep you fully informed at all times, while automatic climate control, power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry, cruise control and aluminum pedals establish an ambience of pure driving delight. The Lancer Evolution is well-equipped to entertain and keep you informed on any journey. Premium audio delivered through an available Rockford Fosgate® Punch audio system with 9 speakers including a 10" subwoofer, Bluetooth® connectivity with streaming audio and USB input with voice control, an available SD navigation with 7" LCD touchscreen display, 3D map, voice command, real-time traffic information and CD player, ensures you arrive up to date and relaxed.
A legend in the automotive world, Recaro® has been supplying seats to racing teams and high-end sports car manufacturers for decades. Exceptional semi-bucket front seats provide outstanding lateral support during high-speed cornering, as well as long-term comfort for daily driving. And because side-impact airbags are built right into the seats, they come with an extra level of safety. Outfitted in resilient sports fabric or leather, these seats look as good as they perform.
We believe in the quality, reliability and durability of the Mirage so much that we back it with a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. We also include a 5-year/60,000-mile fully transferable New Vehicle Basic Limited Warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty on the restraint system, a 7-year/100,000-mile Anti-Corrosion/Perforation Limited Warranty and 5-years/unlimited miles Roadside Assistance.
The Lancer Evolution excels in power and performance on the road, and outperforms in safety, allowing you to drive with peace of mind. Equipped with dual front airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, side-impact curtain airbags and driver’s knee airbag to protect its occupants, the Lancer Evolution’s intelligent safety systems are always on alert. You can be confident that technologies such as Active Stability Control (ASC), Traction Control Logic (TCL), and an advanced sport-tuned Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), Brake Override System (BOS) and Brake Assist System (BAS) will provide safety in the most unforeseen events. Mitsubishi’s proprietary Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) collision-absorbing structure technology that utilizes crumple zones to route and absorb energy during high-impact collisions further ensures your safety. Strategic reinforcements at key body points complement its side-impact door beams, giving the Lancer Evolution a stable and secure base.
This innovative system features seven standard airbags (dual front, front seat-mounted, side-impact curtain, side-curtain and driver’s knee), that stabilize your lower body and knees during certain types of frontal collisions. This is one feature you’ll probably never use, but it’s nice to know it’s there.
