A Look Into the Past: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Wagon vs. Subaru Forester STI Wagon

What happens when you compare two Japanese wagons in the automaker industry? The website carthrottle.com recently took a close look at the Subaru Forester STI and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Wagon.

 

The Subaru Forester STI is a fast, sporty and practical wagon that offers a nimble, exhilarating ride. It’s out of production, but was for some time a practical family vehicle that offered a fun, fast-paced side as well. However, the Subaru Forester STI sacrificed fuel economy for capability, which isn’t always a good thing in a family wagon.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution was a speedy sports sedan that is no longer being manufactured today. But for a short, brief period, the manufacturer offered the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in wagon form. When carthrottle.com tested the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Wagon, they discovered that this option offers even sharper handling, a better grip on the road, and firmer, better suspension. The Lancer Evolution Wagon sits lower to the ground and provides a lively, fast, and exhilarating driving experience.

At Coronet Mitsubishi, we like to look back at some of the great Mitsubishi options that had their spotlight in the past. It’s not always about the latest and greatest. Sometimes it’s also about those little, individual, innovative moments that make up a brand’s identity.

Mitsubishi Reveals Plan to Build Only New SUV Models from Now On

Mitsubishi is set to focus hard on new SUV models.

Get ready for more SUVs and fewer sedans from Mitsubishi.

The Mitsubishi brand has long made some of the world’s greatest sedans and SUVs, but now they are turning their full attention to the latter. Despite the popularity of vehicles like the Lancer EVO, Mitsubishi’s plan is to stop all production of sedans and focus solely on building new SUV models.

“There are two reasons for that [the production changes],” said Mitsubishi president Tetsuro Aikawa, speaking at the Geneva Motor Show. “One…is because, concerning the investment on development, we’d like to concentrate on SUV, PHEVs, and EVs.” It’s hard to argue with that logic—especially when the brand new Mitsubishi Outlander is so impressive.

“The second reason,” Aikawa continued, “is because sedan…is a very high competition at the moment.” In other words, Mitsubishi is going to let other brands beat themselves up over the sedan market, while they steadily build the most impressive and extensive range of SUVs in the world. We’ll see new models, PHEV and EV capability, new features, and who knows what else.

Here at Coronet of Peru, we’re excited to see what Mitsubishi comes up with in future years in the SUV segment. For now, though, if you really want a Lancer, there are no plans to stop production of the current model—they just won’t be making a new model. So come see us today to get yours before they are gone.
