Mitsubishi finally releases the long awaited 2016 version of the highly acclaimed Lancer Evolution with an array of changes both inside and out. Mitsubishi decides to refresh their Lancer that sold moderately well in the US. The car was a well-priced family car but lacked some of the features that its competitors were already experts in, but has Mitsubishi learned from its mistakes and put everything into its 2016 Lancer. Let us see if the Lancer 2016 does any better this time around. It certainly looks to be turning the heads of many.

2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Review
The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer looks to impress a lot of people with the many features its offers. It has actually received very polarizing reviews, either people hate it or people love it. Mitsubishi introduces a brand new frame for the 2016 Lancer Evolution calling it the Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution or RISE for short. This new frame gives the car a much sturdier ad stern back but makes it a hell of a lot safer. And with the new 7 safety airbag system in place, the car is as safe as can ever be.
Mitsubishi also takes the plunge and introduces a dual engine system, a hybrid engine and a normal fuel engine side by side. According to most reports the car is shoveling out a monstrous 291 horsepower at 6500 rpm on its GSR engine but on the FE engine it is giving out 303. The Lancer Evolution certainly impresses and earns a 7/10. The GSR engine shows to perform pretty well on the road, and coupled with the new aluminum frame, it certainly has certain crispness about it on the road and in the overall way it controls.
2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Engine
The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has three types of engines, the GSR, the MR and the FE.

As stated before it gives out a horsepower of 291 at 6500 rpm and uses a MPI fuel system.

Mitsubishi bumps up the new interior and puts an LCD information panel at the middle of the dashboard. With the silver accented dashboard it has quite the futuristic look to it. The six way adjustable driver seat along with the four way adjustable passenger seats are also coated with leather and so is the sports steering wheel-both accented by silver of course.
