While remaining true to the core values that have made the Lancer Evolution synonymous with thrilling performance, the next-generation 2010 model offers new premium features and user technology options for a more refined driving experience.

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 inline four-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 weight distribution.

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

Two Lancer Evolution models will be offered in the U.S. for 2010: the GSR with a 5-speed manual transmission and the Lancer Evolution MR 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. The MR is also equipped exclusively with Bilstein shock absorbers and Eibach springs, two-piece front brake rotors, BBS forged-alloy wheels and HID headlamps. New for 2010 is the MR Touring model, enhanced for comfortable everyday use with a power glass sunroof, leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, rear lip spoiler, insulated front windshield glass, and improved sound insulation. The GSR is now also available in Rotor Glow Orange.

The Lancer Evolution features its own distinct suspension system, including inverted struts in front and a rear multi-link configuration. Forged aluminum components reduce unsprung weight. The 18 x 8.5-inch wheels (Enkei cast-alloy on GSR and BBS forged-alloy on MR) carry 245/40R18 Yokohama ADVAN asymmetrical performance tires.

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 parking brake lever with chrome release button adds a premium feel. The MR sees the increased addition of Phantom Black interior accents with storage compartments.

Available user technology, including Rockford Fosgate® audio and navigation system with music server, reflects the tastes of a broadening customer base. A hands-free Bluetooth™ cell phone interface system is now standard as well as an MP3 auxiliary input jack for all models.

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 air bag.
