2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart

Jan 13th
Mitsubishi knows the name Ralliart isn’t spoken with much reverence among American gasoline punks. That should change. Mitsubishi has watched Subaru ring up healthy sales with the mid-grade WRX, which neatly slots between the 87-octane Impreza and the high-test STI.Now the Lancer Ralliart is being sent in to bridge the same wide chasm separating the $18,915, 168-hp Lancer GTS from…

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander

Dec 31st
Mitsubishi, the one-time purveyor of such awesomeness as the Starion ESI, the 3000GT VR-4, and the freshly discontinued Evo, is a shell of its former self. Forced by a competitive market and a lack of production partners to pare down its product line to a pair of crossovers, the Mirage econobox, the dated Lancer compact, and the i-MiEV electric, Mitsubishi…
2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Dec 15th
Japanese love a good obento, which is a select assortment of traditional delicacies served in a bento box, a compartmentalized tray with high walls to prevent intermingling of foodstuffs. Perhaps that's why you can't buy the same feisty Mitsubishi Colt Turbo hatchback in both Europe and Japan, or the nifty six-passenger Mitsubishi Grandis wagon in the U.S. Intermingling has risky…
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4

Nov 19th
Do an internet search looking for the worst cars sold in the U.S. and you find lists more numerous than posts covering that video of Jay Leno in the Hemi Under Glass drag car that rolled over. Consensus, in the subcompact class at least, gravitates around the Mitsubishi Mirage, a subcompact hatchback so widely loathed by reviewers upon its 2014…
2017 Mitsubishi Lancer

Nov 17th
In the car business, just as in life, respect is given when it’s earned. Consider the current Honda Civic: Ostensibly designed as an appliance to provide inexpensive and efficient transportation, it also delivers an engaging driving experience and holistic design that together transcend its humble mission statement. We respect that. The 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer compact sedan, however, is a more…
2017 Mitsubishi Outlander

Nov 15th
With the demise of Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evolution last year, the company’s Outlander GT became the de facto best vehicle sold by the three-diamond brand. Of course, that has been a low bar of late. The 2017 Outlander GT, however, is a genuinely acceptable crossover SUV.Straddling the line between compact and mid-size, the Outlander’s pricing and its 105.1-inch wheelbase put it…
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage

Nov 14th
You have to be pretty experienced to reminisce fondly about past versions of the Mitsubishi Mirage, but even the young soon will forget this latest iteration of Mitsubishi’s subcompact runabout, which returns for 2017 after sitting out the 2016 model year. Except, perhaps, for its particularly egregious abuse of the GT (for Grand Touring) label, which came about decades ago…
2014 Mitsubishi Outlander

Nov 12th
Ever find yourself thumbing through an old yearbook and have one of those, “Oh, yeah, I remember that guy,” moments? That’s the feeling we experienced when the Mitsubishi Outlander GT appeared in our parking lot. Like our quirky former classmate, Mitsubishi’s automotive division once showed such great promise—hoist a Monster energy drink in tribute to the Lancer Evo—but mass success…
2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Nov 12th
Rarely is a car’s model name ironic while it is still in production, although there are some exceptions: The Ford Aspire was pretty ironic from the get-go, and the Chevrolet Monte Carlo was rarely seen on the streets of that principality. Which brings us to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. With “evolution” in its name, one expects it to continually…
2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

Nov 9th
When our long-term Mi­tsubishi Lancer Evolution MR arrived in July 2008, we were hit by a wave of sticker shock. At an as-delivered price of $41,515, the Evo exceeded the starting price of a BMW 335i.The Mitsubishi comes with a 291-hp turbocharged engine, a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, and one of the most sophisticated all-wheel-drive systems on the market. But a…
2014 Mitsubishi Mirage

Nov 8th
Way back in 1989, Mitsubishi scored a 10Best win with its Mirage Turbo. That delightful little compact led its class in refinement, performance, and design. Fast-forward 25 years to the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage and it looks like things have gone backward—fast.If the new Mirage were sent back a quarter century, it probably couldn’t return with a 10Best trophy unless it…
