Mitsubishi EVO vs. Subaru Impreza WRX STI

Mitsubishi EVO vs. Subaru Impreza WRX STI

Mitsubishi EVO vs. Subaru Impreza WRX STI is one of those never-ending rivalries in the world of automotive enthusiasts, and ultimately the one best-suited to you will come down to personal preference. But we can come up with at least three reasons why we think the Mitsubishi EVO has the upper hand.

1 – The Handling

The EVO feels sharper and more grounded than the STI while still being light. The chassis is more responsive, in large part thanks to advanced Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) that combines an active center diff with active yaw control, active stability control, and a sport ABS system. It helps create the best possible traction in all scenarios and helps make you feel more confident as a driver.

2 – The Sound

The EVO lets out a smooth, low grumble when you step on the gas. By comparison, the STI sounds like it’s rapidly misfiring or clearing its throat. Even with the stock exhaust, the EVO’s sound make you feel like you’re driving a massively fast car. With the STI, you almost have to get an aftermarket exhaust to get a satisfying sound out of it, but then you’ll annoy the whole neighborhood.

3 – The Looks

We just love how the EVO looks on our lot at Pantili Mitsubishi. It conveys a sense of power without overdoing it and features two more practical vents on the hood than the STI, which are more streamlined and less obstructive of the driver’s view. It also has functional fender vents that not only help cool the brakes and release the air normally trapped in the wheel but also make the EVO look more like a rally car.

If all that’s not enough for you, though, just check out what Jeremy Clarkson has to say about these two cars!

2015 Mirage is the Fastest-Rising Mitsubishi Model This Year

If, just a few years ago, you’d told Pantili Mitsubishi that the Mitsubishi Mirage would become one of our best-selling vehicles in our lineup, we might have laughed.

It’s not a bad car at all but, let’s face it, it’s small and doesn’t abound in features, compared to some of our higher level options. Yet it’s become Mitsubishi’s second-best-selling vehicle in the United States this year, not far behind the Outlander Sport. Sales through May have increased by 73.6% compared to 2014, making it the fastest-rising Mitsubishi model this year.

Remember when it managed to outsell the 2015 Volksagen Golf GTI back in February? (And the Toyota Prius V, Audi A4, Lexus GS, and other popular cars?) Even some of Mitsu’s executives are surprised. “It’s selling really, really well, beyond expectations,” said Bryan Arnett, senior manager of product strategy.

The Mirage has found great appeal among customers who were previously thinking about buying a used car. With a $12,995 entry price, a 44-mpg highway fuel-economy rating, and a 100,000-mile/10-year powertrain warranty, it becomes easy to see why the Mirage has found its way to so many new garages!
