WRX Takes On Ralliart: Subaru vs. Mitsubishi

FOR MORE WRX VS. RALLIART: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=138347??tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..2.* Stuff the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX into a corner, and you know it deserves a rematch with the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. It's no less refined than the 2008 WRX, but it goes in without paralyzing understeer and doesn't keel over as soon as you load the outside tires. Provoke it and you'll get some attitude. When you're back on the throttle hard at the exit, there's no rush to grab 3rd gear. Rescued from last year's rev-starved funk, the 2.5-liter boxer-4 engine wants to see its 6,500-rpm redline again. Most important, the 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX isn't trying so hard to distance you from the drive. It rewards your efforts in the cockpit — one of the things that made the previous-generation WRX so likable. Probably this is also why the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is so involving to drive. Introduced last summer, this Lancer Ralliart is the long-awaited head-on challenge to the WRX dynasty and it kicked the 2008 WRX while it was down. Even compared to the 2009 WRX, Mitsubishi's Ralliart is a flashier package. It has mechanical limited-slip differentials both front and rear, a very neat automated dual-clutch gearbox, Recaro seats and the schnoz of a tiger shark. Evo Jr. has a nice stiff chassis, too. If the homely gray Subaru has any shot at winning here, it will have to do more with less.

Ralli!: 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart
http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=127586?tid= edmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* When you line up the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart next to its street-bred competitors, it might seem slow and expensive. But that's how a bean counter would make his purchase decision. A guy like that draws a line (with a straightedge) down the center of a sheet of graph paper to put pluses on one side and minuses on the other. He'd never be able to get his pointy head around the visceral experience the rally-inspired Ralliart supplies. But he might just have another point to make here. As they now exist, a front-wheel-drive Mitsubishi Lancer GTS with its naturally aspirated 168-horsepower engine is priced at $18,665, while the twin-scroll turbocharged 291-hp all-wheel-drive Evolution GSR starts at $33,665. If we were to follow the accountant's rigid method of finding the average of these two cars, it'd be a three-wheel-drive Lancer with a single-scroll turbo making 229 hp and costing $26,165. And if we would add the $1,500 price of the Evo MR's state-of-the-art dual-clutch six-speed transmission with its shift paddles on the steering wheel, our dream car's price would rise to $27,665. And wouldn't you know it? That's almost exactly the price of the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. As a bonus, it has four-wheel drive (not three) and 237 hp at no extra cost.

Mitsubishi Evo X: Faster than the Evo IX? - by Inside Line
http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=124209 We're not sure how to say "oops" in Japanese. Doesn't matter; we don't need to know. We just test the cars. We don't make them 250 pounds heavier. That's what Mitsubishi's engineers are for. In their efforts to make the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X stronger, more powerful and more luxurious, they made it heavier. A lot heavier. And heavier in this case means slower....





Impreza WRX STi for Cops? Subaru Impreza Specialty Cars @ 2009 CAS
MORE CHICAGO AUTO SHOW @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/chicago/2009/subarucustomimprez awrxstinews.html Subaru has built a custom 2009 Impreza WRX STI for factory rally team driver Travis Pastrana in celebration of his third Rally America National Championship. You can see the car at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, with Pastrana himself expected to make an appearance February 14 and 15 to sign autographs. Pastrana's new ride uses a combination of custom-made parts and accessories from both Subaru Performance Tuning and Subaru Tecnica International. To improve handling, Subaru has added an SPT front strut tower brace and SPT lower chassis brace. The stock 305-horsepower STI engine receives a performance Boost from a tuned ECU and custom downpipe. An STI short-throw shifter is connected to the six-speed gearbox. This special 2009 Subaru WRX STI also receives a custom carbon-fiber hood and rear spoiler along with a chin spoiler, mesh grille and Exhaust finishers sold as STI accessories. Biggie-size BF Goodrich G-Force Super Sport A/S 275/35ZR18 tires are wrapped around 18-inch Work Evolution XD-9 wheels finished in custom satin black. PIAA high-intensity discharge headlights, mud flaps and decals complete the rally look. The interior upholstery is done in blue Alcantara trimmed in yellow piping. Custom yellow stitching also adds accents to the steering wheel, shifter boot and brake lever boot. Carbon fiber-patterned trim adorns the dash, doors and console. The STI's very basic stock sound system has been replaced with Kicker speakers, amplifiers and a 10-inch subwoofer. Subaru has also tucked an Xbox 360 underneath the passenger seat and connected it to the Eclipse head unit.
