There is nothing quite like taking in a California sunset. Except, of course, when you can do it driving a super fast car. At first glance of the Mitsubishi Lancer I was given to test drive and I thought it was a total guy’s car. The sweet curves of the newer cars was missing and instead the body was reminiscent of older muscle cars. I’m not one to judge a book by its cover though! I jumped in and within minutes was zipping down the California coastline.
I love to feel the car beneath me as I shift gears and drive down the city streets. I was a tad bit surprised to not have a 6th gear and kept trying to put it into overdrive the entire time. The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition surprisingly only had 5 gears. I kinda wonder what made them hold back that popular 6th gear.
This car hit the road in 2008 and was retired in 2016 with this 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition. There were only 1,600 Final Editions made and all of them sold in the US. Each one was numbered too! The last 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition sold on eBay for $76,400 – which is almost more than double to car’s suggested MSRP of $37,995. Wowsers!
The Lancer had five different Final Edition exclusive highlights. My favorite though was the red stitching on the all-black interior. It did scream a certain level of masculinity, but I liked it nonetheless.
I drive a ton at night and having and easy-to-navigate console is essential for me. I’m a big fan of the dial knobs as they are intuitive and easy to operate at night. You don’t have to look down to get the temperature just right, simply scroll the wheel. The visual console tech was similar to most vehicles I had been driving. Easy to figure out and nothing too earth shattering or new tech to report. Consistency and ease of use though are high in my books with the Lancer!
Not going to lie, this was one fun car to drive. Super fast, turns on a dime, and really easy to want to have for your daily driver! The one thing I was not a fan of though was the rear fin. It is just in a terrible spot and it made seeing the traffic behind me a tad more difficult. Other than that, I enjoyed driving this car through the deserts of California and zipping up the coastline.
