Mitsubishi Evo X: First Drive
300 horsepower on tap, gut wrenching torque to thunder through every sort of terrain, manners to make your mom-in-law see you in a new welcome light, ample space for four and yet having the capability to thunder from rest to 100km/h in under 4.5 seconds and on to an electronically limited terminal velocity of 250km/h, this is the new Mitsubishi Evo X.

The minute though the call comes from Mission Control to head home to the wifey and family, the Evo X plays family car to the hilt. Refined and smooth, with a comfortable ride quality despite the ultra low profile rubber it is shod with (Japanese Dunlops of size 245/40 R18 93Y), it will impress with the space on offer for its occupants. Of course there are short comings, because this is Japanese thought process at play where the quality of the cabin materials is still not yet in the European super league but having said that it is definitely of a very high order. Do remember that the interior is one of a high powered saloon and not a jet fighter and you get the drift. However, the Recaros are brilliant and the adjustability of the steering plus the overall driving position puts you firmly in the mood to let the brilliant four-cylinder motor make music.
Mitsubishi will have this legend available to deep pocketed Indian motoring enthusiasts from the next month on. Be prepared to pay what you would for a top of the line 3-series BMW but then where would you get this sort of engineering, performance and competition pedigree?
