Creature comforts second, Handling and performance first. The inline 4,turbocharged intercooled engine will have your passengers in for a treat.
My 2013 Lancer Evolution GSR/5 speed has been great. Reliability great and performance is thrilling. The car is a hoot to drive around. Although the interior is a basic and feels "cheap" the car more than makes up with handling and driver experience. Only problems I've had so far are the both my 02 Sensors went bad along with MAF sensor. The parts and repairs would have costed me $1700 (both combined) had I not been under warranty. Potential buyers of for this car must be aware this not a car to purchase for comfort but rather for the performance it offers. Also keep in mind due to limited production parts will be more expensive. Also the automatic version of this vehicle is more expensive to maintain due to the nature of more complex parts. If you want good handling vehicle that offers power as well the Evo is a wonderful car.
