While the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR isn’t going to go head to head with the major supersportscars coming out, it is still super in its own way, and a sports car. In fact, while it looks very street friendly, it was built for sporty driving from the wheels up. Everyone that takes it for a spin gets out saying words like “Fun”, “fast” and while maybe not totally “furious”, definitely more than assertive.
The 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR comes in an all wheel drive configuration to offer assured driving no matter what kind or terrain or snowy, wet driving conditions you happen to be maneuvering through. The 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine offers 291 horsepower which is more than enough to get this smaller sized model up and running in seconds flat. It is paired with a five speed manual or you can opt up to the Evo MR six speed, dual clutch automatic transmission depending on how you enjoy your driving the most.
When you crawl inside the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR, you will either love it or hate it depending on how comfortable you feel in the seats. The seats are snug fitting and you can choose them in Recaro seating. If you like to feel hugged in tight, then you will love how they feel. Otherwise, you will be less than pleased. This is a sports car and the rear seats aren’t made for plushly carrying passengers, mostly just groceries or other small portables, but they aren’t too bad for shorter trips. In fact if you are looking for space, this car probably won’t be for you as it’s not built for cargo room, it’s built for performance.
The 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR overall is a great car, but might be a tad overpriced coming in at about $34,695 for the bare bones basic version. If you don’t mind spending the extra cash though, you should be in store for some fun driving adventures.
