Lancer Evolution: Road-Legal Rally Technology

Source: Mitsubishi | Published: Wed Aug 25, 2010

(continued from the previous page)

The Engine and AWD

The 2010 Lancer Evolution showcases the latest performance and handling technology, including an all-aluminum 291-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled engine and the Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC) dynamic handling system. S-AWC regulates the drive torque at each wheel by controlling a network of advanced dynamic handling technologies including Active Center Differential (ACD) 4-wheel-drive, Active Yaw Control (AYC) rear differential, Active Stability Control (ASC) and sport ABS brakes. A helical gear-type limited-slip front differential is used.

The 4B11 DOHC in line 4-cylinder engine, based on a reinforced cast-aluminum cylinder block, employs a direct-acting valvetrain for reduced weight and MIVEC variable valve timing is used on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. The rear-located (firewall side) stainless steel exhaust manifold helps improve overall weight distribution.

Refreshed Design for 2010

A shark-nosed front end inspired by jet fighter air intakes, a distinct wedge-like profile, and crisp and taut lines highlight the Lancer Evolution's signature face and profile. New for 2010 are updated larger side air dams, tail lamps with black extensions and a short pole 200 mm antenna. Its unique front end, aggressively sloping hood with integral air scoop and engine heat outlets, boxed fenders and 18-inch wheels impart the Lancer Evolution with the look of the street-wise sports machine.

Suspension

The Lancer Evolution features its own distinct suspension system, including inverted struts in front and a rear multi-link configuration, with numerous forged aluminum components to help reduce unsprung weight. The 18 x 8.5-inch wheels (Enkei cast-alloy on the GSR and BBS forged-alloy on the MR) are shod with large (245/40 R18) tarmac-grabbing Yokohama ADVAN asymmetrical performance tires at all four corners.

The Interior

Adding a dash of even more comfort and civility, the 2010 Lancer Evolution features many new revisions for improved everyday driving. A new high-contrast multi-color LCD instrument meter enhances visibility while a leather-clad parking brake lever with chrome release button adds a premium touch. The MR model receives an additional premium touch - Phantom Black interior accents.

Reflecting the tastes of the ever-broadening Evolution customer base, a hands-free Bluetooth cell phone interface system is now standard as well as an MP3 auxiliary input jack for all models, while available user technologies include a Rockford Fosgate audio and navigation system with music server.

Standard safety features include an advanced dual front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) with occupant sensors, standard front seat-mounted side-impact air bags and side curtain air bags, plus a driver's knee airbag.

Four Evolution Models

Three other Lancer Evolution models will be offered in the U.S. for 2010: the GSR with a five speed manual transmission; the Lancer Evolution MR that is equipped with a 6-speed Twin-Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) - an automated manual transmission with magnesium steering wheel shifter paddles and a console shifter - Bilstein shock absorbers and Eibach springs, two-piece Brembo front brake rotors, BBS forged-alloy wheels and HID headlamps; and the MR Touring model, more comfortably equipped for everyday use with a power glass sunroof, leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, rear lip spoiler, insulated front windshield glass and improved sound insulation.
