GALLERY UPDATE: Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart
Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is already history because the heart of the performance division Ralliart stopped beating because of lack of orders.
Even so, fans can find the car from images in stock or second hand. Lived experiences behind the steeringwheel are hard to be found in another sedan and flirt with opposite ideas – excitement and comfort.
Lancer Ralliart is the middle way , by being a more sporty car than the Lancer, but wiser than the beast Lancer Evo X. Unfortunately, the Ralliart version is not enjoying much looking in Europe by being a niche car.
After a quick glance in a hurry, the Lancer sedan leaves you the feeling of an sedan with aggressive and not to original design … the rear brings a lot of Alfa Romeo 159. Those who know will notice the special color specify to the Ralliart version, and small details that make the difference. Capota e mai bombata si are guri de ventilatie, iar in spate, esapamentul cu evacuare dubla si micul eleron tradeaza temperamentul sportiv al masinii. The hood is more bulged and has air vents and in the rear the double exhaust and the small spoiler betrays the car’s sporty temperament.
Technology, comfort and equipment,
Although it’s a balky car, the Lancer Ralliart is surprisingly comfortable. It has decent place for four passengers and their luggage, the features level is up for a class C sedan and the seat of driver ergonomics is exemplary.
Multimedia and control system is a very complex machine. You could play for days without discover the limits. Spre exemplu, poti regla inclusiv cat timp dupa oprirea motorului sa primeasca energie geamurile electrice. For example, you can adjust including how long after stopping the engine the electric windows get power.
Turning to more practical equipment, the navigation system has a fast processor, and Rockford Fosgate audio system sounds great.
Although it takes eyes by the sporty and tech look the interior is pretty cheap. Plastic is hard and unpleasant to the touch, and apparent carbon fiber inserts on the board is actually all plastic. Because of this inside your car give the impression that’s pretty expensive for the offering to the quality of materials.
However, how goes remains the most interesting part of the car. Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is highlighted by a turbocharged 2-liter petrol engine which develops 240 HP and an enginetorque of 343 Nm. Acceleration from 0-60 mph is achieved in 7 seconds, but the figures could look better if the car wouldn’t have 3575 lbs, as a compact SUV.
Power is transmitted to all four wheels, while optimal control can choose between three modes: Tarmac, Gravel and Snow. The engine is highlighted by a manual gearbox with double clutch, electronically controlled. I mean you as a driver perceives as an automatic one. It’s called Twin Clutch SST and rival DSG from Volkswagen.
Interesting is that the machine settings, with a clear direction for sport, remember you a cat passes on font of a pitbull. Until you getused to the very sensitive throttle , you may wake up immediately over speed limit, with your head stuck in the headrest, because the transmission instantly relegated 2-3 speeds and the engine start yelling threatening.
Unfortunately, only 14,5 tank gal does not allow you to have fun more than 186-217 miles, because the car is a little greedy.
The only real rival of Lancer Ralliart is Skoda Octavia RS because has a sedan look, but they also can be considered competing models the MPS Mazda3, Ford Focus RS, VW Golf GTI and Opel Astra OPC.
In conclusion, Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is a car that fits like a glove to drivers that want a good sports car at all. It is strong, so you won’t get scared like on the Evo, but fast enough to beat more expensive cars. Unfortunately, high consumption, low quality materials and relatively high price of almost $39,400 , including taxes, making this model less attractive in the eyes of many customers for which the Golf GTI is a better deal.
