New for 2011, the Lancer Ralliart and Evo can be optioned with the new FUSE Hands-Free Link System—allowing users to connect their Bluetooth phones, iPod, or USB drive and access calling functions or music with voice commands. A Gracenote service automatically identifies artists and track names. The available navigation system now also includes real-time traffic data.
Both the 2011 Ralliart and Evo come surprisingly better-equipped than their racy, tuner-car look and feel might suggest. Fog lamps, a hands-free entry system, a trip computer, automatic climate control, Bluetooth, leather trim, and aluminum pedals are all standard on the Ralliart. The Evolution MR upgrades to the twin-clutch gearbox, a slightly more compliant suspension, better wheels, and HID headlamps, plus other extras like the FAST hands-free entry system. At the top of the lineup is the Lancer Evolution MR Touring, which also gets new heated leather sport seats, a power sunroof, and other appearance boosts. Remote engine start and a nav system with music storage are among the options on all Ralliart and Evo models.
