Driving it

The Evo X’s piece de resistance has always been in the way it goes round bends. Armed with aids like S-AWC all-wheel drive and ACD Active Centre Differential, the Evo eats corners for breakfast. The Ralliart though, doesn’t feel as sharp or turn-in as eagerly as the Evo X. It still has ACD and all-wheel drive but makes do without the Evo X’s sophisticated S-AWC.

With power sent to all four wheels, the Ralliart offers plenty of grip to put its 240 horses down onto the tarmac at the exit of corners. The steering is nicely weighted and offer sufficient feel. Body control in the bends is good but this comes at the price of a slightly trashy ride – the Ralliart can thump over bad road bumps.

 

Like the Evo X, the Rallart utilizes the 4B11block. Rated at 240bhp, the Ralliart has up to 40bhp less at its disposal than the Evo X. The Ralliart has less torque on hand as well – 343Nm versus the Evo X’s whopping 422Nm at 3500rpm.

Performance isn’t as mind blowing as in the Evo. Mitsubishi quotes a 0-100km/h time of 7.1 seconds for the Ralliart, roughly 2 seconds off the Evo’s time. On the road, it doesn’t feel that much slower than the Evo though. There’s still a hint of turbo lag at low speeds but it delivers quite a blast when the turbo comes on boost at about 2500rpm.

 Like in the Evo X, the engine is far from being refined though. In fact, it sounds just like the old motor in previous Evos when you work it hard – like a juice blender.

The engine is hooked up to Mitsubishi’s SST twin clutch gearbox as used by the Evo X. SST is far better than a torque converter auto or a CVT in a performance machine like this but it’s far from the best of its kind. It’s not as smooth as say, VW’s DSG even though it shifts fast enough, especially in Sport mode. It lacks the Evo’s even faster and harder core gear change setting though.
