2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart

Hey Guys just take a look above the latest car, the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart.

Here is the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Reviews:

The LaSpRa comes only with the six-speed dual-clutch transmission that we whined about in our Four Seasons Evo, with slightly taller fifth and sixth gears for quieter and more fuel-efficient cruising. It suffers from the same reluctance to move off the line, especially up hills, where full throttle results in 3000 rpm of clutch slippage and little else until the lazy turbo spools up. The gearbox then redeems itself with damn-near imperceptible part-throttle shifts that happen within, oh, fourteen-billionths of a second of tugging on one of the steering-column-mounted magnesium paddles.


Optional Recaro seats are incredibly comfortable and supportive, if you happen to fit in them without needing adjustment, because they don’t really do adjustment. The rear seats are more flexible, folding forward in one graceful movement and freeing up an enormous cargo hold that will swallow near-SUV levels of stuff that – thanks to quick and communicative steering – will likely wind up getting flung around the cabin as you dart through bends.


Unfortunately, when we saw the price tag, a couple of obscenities flew around the cabin, too. Our test car was well-equipped, but like the Evo, it seems to be priced a whole category too high. Its shocking $33,000 as-tested price is enough to ensure that this quick hatch, like its Evo brother, will be one rare car. We’ll call it a classic in the making.
