The Lancer Ralliart, in particular, shares much with the sportiest version of the Lancer, the GTS, but it gets the Evolution's lightweight aluminum hood with integral ductwork to keep the turbo cool, along with an aggressively styled front bumper and dual exhaust. On the outside, the look doesn't break out in any new directions, but its shark-like front-end styling makes it easy to spot and differentiate from a distance. There really isn't that much of a difference in appearance between the two models on the outside—with more aggressive wheels, a slightly different front fascia, and an added rear spoiler for the Evolution—even if the Evo has further structural differences and an aluminum roof.
New last year was a five-door Sportback version of the Ralliart; it's a rather conventional, swept-back hatchback in appearance, but it works just as well with the aggressive front end and it's just a matter of personal taste as to which one's better.
The interior of the 2011 Mitsubishi Lance Ralliart and Evo isn't very impressive from a styling standpoint. There are no glaring design deficiencies, and the instrument panel is businesslike and straightforward; but it's easy to see the interior as a slightly dressed-up economy-car cabin. Upholstery, accents, trims, and the steering wheel have been upgraded, however.
