5.Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution $34,495
Mitsubishi has one option out there for enthusiasts and that’s the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Some may think that the Evo is better suited for the rally-courses, but it would be cruel to only think of the Lancer as rally only. The car’s advanced Super all-wheel control system optimizes the car’s traction control for wet, dry or slippery conditions.
Pair that advanced all-wheel drive system with the car’s turbocharged 291-hp, four-cylinder engine and the car will simply shine at the track. The cheaper GSR model gives full control with a five-speed manual transmission and imposing rear-spoiler, but for those looking for the ultimate track-sedan, the MR model comes with a dual-clutch transmission and more track durable rotors and Bilstein struts and Eibach springs.
All Evos come with fancy RECARO seats, dual exhaust and a Brembo braking system, all ready to handle the abuse of either the track, road or rally-cross. Read our review of the Mitsubishi Lance Evolution MR, and watch the video to see it’s impressive handles in the snow.
