The turbocharged, all-wheel-drive, 247-hp Lancer Ralliart might as well be called the Evo Lite.

Here we go – finally, Mitsubishi has decided to build a car for the middleman, the enthusiast stuck between the base Lancer’s dullness and the Lancer Evolution’s balls-out craziness. Find the 152-hp, curdled-milk base Lancer to be too ordinary, too milquetoast, too slow? Offended by the Evolution’s somewhat harsh ride, darty steering, big price tag, and humongous wing? Have we got the car for you. The turbocharged, all-wheel-drive, 247-hp Lancer Ralliart might as well be called the Evo Lite – it’s fast, agile but still comfortable, and cheap enough that you don’t mind its few flaws.
