SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Four and five stars, frontal impact
NHTSA

Good," frontal offset, side, and rear impact
IIHS

The racy styling and eager demeanor of the 2010 Evolution and Ralliart might invite risky driving, but they promise good safety overall.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart shares its body structure with the standard Lancer sedan, a vehicle that has performs very well in crash tests; because the Evo has such a different structure, it might prove different. The Lancer gets top "good" ratings from the IIHS in frontal offset, side, and rear tests, and a mix of four- and five-star results in federal testing. The feds haven't tested any Lancer, Ralliart, or Evo for side impact.

Electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, head-curtain side airbags, front-seat mounted side bags, and a driver knee airbag are all on the standard-features list for the Ralliart and Evolution.

MotherProof approves of the Lancer Evolution's "comprehensive standard safety package that includes seven airbags." Road & Track says that the all-wheel-drive system in the 2010 Evolution "combines all of the car's electronic sensors to maximize safety during hazardous driving conditions."

However, ConsumerGuide notes that the "high windowsills impart a slightly closed-in feeling" and are partly responsible for the fact that "outward visibility aft and to the right-rear isn't great, and it's made worse by the available rear spoiler."

Conclusion

The 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Ralliart offer more safety and security than their racy image suggests.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
