Aimed squarely at drivers who value speed and handling above all else, the Evolution feels like the love child of an economy sedan and a Saturn V rocket. Powertrains include a 291-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four with a five-speed manual in GSR models and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic in MR models. All-wheel drive is standard on all; so is a harsh ride. Sadly, Mitsubishi discontinued this icon after the 2015 model year and will replace it “in spirit” with an SUV with high performance.
