GirlintheTrunk: 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO

GirlintheTrunk: 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO
If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know I wasn’t too much of a fan of the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO. In case you missed it, check out my Lancer vs. Mazdaspeed3 review. But if you don’t want to click through, the basic gist is: Petite drivers, stout drivers or tall drivers need not apply.... Read more »

Mazda Mazdaspeed3 vs. Mitsubishi Lancer EVO

Mazda Mazdaspeed3 vs. Mitsubishi Lancer EVO
When I swapped cars last week from the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo to the Mazda Mazdaspeed3, one of my tweeps asked which I liked better. The answer,  hands down, is Mazdaspeed3. And while there were surface things such as the miserably uncomfortable Recaro seats in the Evo, that pointed me to the instantaneous answer, I had... Read more »

Today's Rave: Mitsubishi Outlander Sport glass roof

Today's Rave: Mitsubishi Outlander Sport glass roof
When I was sitting in the front seat of the 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, I thought the panoramic glass roof was pretty neat. But it wasn’t until I sat in the back seat to take a photo that realized just how cool this feature is. You get this ginormous sweeping view that just keeps on... Read more »

Photo gallery: 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer

While I can’t admit to loving the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer, I can’t say I hate it either. In fact, I think the exterior styling on this vehicle is really well done. Better than a lot of vehicles on the road. It looks like a much pricier vehicle, certainly not a vehicle that has a base... Read more »

Mitsubishi Lancer interior: Cheap or not cheap?

I feel a little like Howie Mandel with that headline, but it is the crux of the video below. I had a twitter argument during the test week with @wheelseditor and @JBH8 about the quality of the interior of the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer. I didn’t think it was that bad, and they thought it was...

2011 Mitsubishi Outlander: A fuel-efficient AWD

So, I’m a lead foot. And my MPGs are notoriously awful. Which is why my time in the Mitsubishi Outlander was a nice surprise. I’m currently commuting out to Hoffman Estates from Logan Square, and my morning drive is something less than desirable in terms of flow. Stop and stop and more stopping before going... Read more »

Track time with the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO MR

During our time in Sonoma with Mitsubishi, we had the opportunity to take  a couple turns on the track at Infineon Raceway in the Lancer EVO MR. While I still can’t tell you what I thought (embargo is June 7), here’s a video of an intro lap on the track with a Jim Russell Performance... Read more »

Mitsubishi introduces all-new Outlander Sport

2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Mitsubishi may be a small automaker by American standards, but it’s definitely working on being mighty. Part of the strategy: an all-new entry into what Mitsubishi calls the “lower crossover” segment. Enter the 2011 Outlander Sport. We’re under embargo until July 7, so I can’t really tell you what I think... Read more »

Just left the Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback

2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback I didn’t not like it. My boyfriend gives me a hard time for using that phrase, but that about sums it all up. I don’t have negative feelings about the Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback. But I didn’t have overwhelmingly positive ones either. It was a 5-speed manual transmission with a stiff-ish clutch...

What does this remind you of?

So I swapped into the Mitsubishi Outlander yesterday. And, as I was coming back from lunch, I got a good full-front view of the grille. And I was slightly taken aback at its direct rip off of another manufacturer’s grille. Take off the Mitsubishi badging, add some rings, and what do you have?
