The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution maintains the scorching acceleration and tenacious grip of its predecessor, gains a little more finesse, and does it with much more handsome styling. But beware: It still feels like a tuner car. The Caliber has a very practical layout and quite a few innovative features to get excited about, but it's lacking in driving enjoyment or refinement--even compared to its low-priced competition.
