Agreed on the cost factor... but its has been widely criticized for borrowing a BORING platform from Chrysler.
Mitusbishi, needs this EVO to be spot on..if they ever wanted to stay in business

Toyota and Honda's have clearly established themselves... its the EVO that is keeping Mitsu alive

Its one hot looking and powerful piece of @$$..Hope they give it /w good interior options(leather, nav etc), i am going to be all in to replace my G35 for it..

Really like the new design and AWD helps here..

The only thing is that it would probably need to be slammed a little..

EVO VI was absolute class, brilliant design. but this is aggression at its best.Not many cars look killer from every angle...This one surely does

The new Impreza is a let down and I don't have high hopes for the new STI either(in the looks department). This new EVO on the other hand is awesome. We'll have to wait and see how they perform.

Hubba hubba. Me want. In blue. Me want.

Wonder if HM will ever get the regular Joe NA version here. Car looks hot enough to cook with.

Can I have mine in black? With the paddles please!

Me thinks the placement of its license plate gives it a different charm... better than putting it below the grill and masking its beauty.

I would def. change those alloys though. Something with a 3" lip sounds puuurrfecto!

HM-Mitsubishi India's track record of market-pulse is an eye-candy for the mentally challenged
