Will the Future Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution “Crossover” to the Other Side?

Sometimes, people get names just right, and now it would seem that Mitsubishi had itself one of those undeniable “got-it-right” moments, years after it first introduced the Mitsubishi Lancer “Evolution” back in 2015.

What started off as just idle gossip is turning out to be true: the future Mitsubishi Lancer Evo will in fact evolve into a crossover! The new build will carry forth the high performance and athleticism of the Mitsubishi Lancers of times gone by, only now with what we’re assuming will be increased power and capability. Unfortunately, we’ll probably have to wait another three to six years before we see the crossover on the road.

The Mitsubishi Lancer is one of Mitsubishi’s most well-known vehicles. Since its introduction in 1973, it has upheld the promise of its ultra-athletic styling with sporty performance and surprising kick for a compact car. We’ve always enjoyed connecting drivers with their dream rides here at Coronet Mitsubishi — lucky for us, the Mitsubishi Lancer has consistently made that task fairly easy.

If you just can’t wait the few years it will take for Mitsubishi to roll out the all-new Mitsubishi Lancer Evo crossover, then stop by Coronet Mitsubishi today and see all the other incredible Mitsubishi models we have in stock.

The new 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer offers drivers top safety features and now it has the backing of the federal government. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rates vehicles based on their standard equipment and crash test results. This year, the Mitsubishi Lancer brings more safety equipment to the compact sedan segment.

The NHTSA awarded the new Lancer with a four-star safety rating, just one star shy of the highest available five-star safety rating. In all, the Lancer earned a consistent four stars in the front, rollover, and side crash tests.

This year, the Mitsubishi Lancer comes stocked with standard safety equipment like seven airbags, antilock brakes, electronic stability control, and traction control. A rearview camera comes standard on all trim levels, a new feature for the 2017 model year. The Lancer also comes with a standard drive-side knee airbag as part of its seven-airbag system.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, another federal government agency, has yet to rate the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer. The 2016 model earned an Acceptable rating in the small-overlap crash test and a Good rating for all other tests.

Final Mitsubishi Lancer Evo

Well, folks, the final Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, one of the most loved compact cars is officially off the market. The Japanese automaker brought the legendary model’s legacy to a close via an eBay auction on September 15th. All proceeds from the auction benefited Feeding America Riverside and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.

The final Mitsubishi Evo came in the form of the Lancer Evo X Final Edition. Only 1,600 units left the production line with the final model heading to eBay. It eventually sold for a whopping $76,400, an amount that will surely help those in need.

The Final Edition Evo was the best form of the compact car. It boasted 12 hp over the standard model as well as a five-speed manual transmission. Other standard features included Bilstein shocks, Brembo brakes, and Eibach springs.

The Final Edition model is largely considered a collectible due to the limited production run and upgraded performance features. The car itself boasts a sleek sporty design that makes this model one to remember.

As the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo drives off into the sunset, it’s good to know that the final model will help feed those in need.

This exclusive edition will show the world just how special the Evo really was, and that Mitsubishi really does care about the fans of the superb performance sedan.

What exactly the Special Action will entail is mostly unknown, but it is on a lot of people’s minds. It certainly is here at Coronet of Peru. This curiosity was clearly evidenced during a Q&A session at Jalopnik involving Executive Vice-President of Mitsubishi North America, Don Swearingen.
