Dismal Fuel Economy
No one is buying an Evo for fuel economy, and at 17 mpg city and 22 mpg highway it’s obvious why. Making matters worse is the fact that you’re more likely to get the lower number in every day driving – like I did.
For comparison’s sake, we registered 20 mpg in the 400 hp Porsche 911 C4S.
Outdated, with low grade components, poor fuel economy and a brutally stiff ride, the Evo is also a thrill to drive and is dialed-in like few cars you can buy (at any price). Once I arrived at Road America all the reasons to love it came quickly flooding back.
Like how old men buy Dodge Challengers because it reminds them of being young, so the Evo does the same for a new generation of aging enthusiasts.
