unexceptional for a compact car
Consumer Guide

To improve fuel economy, the Ralliart's 5th and 6th gears are higher than those in the Evolution
Cars.com



With fuel economy ratings about on par with those of a typical three-row SUV, the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution simply isn't green--especially considering it's a compact.

At just 17 mpg city for both Evo models, or 18 for the Ralliart, you'll be chugging through the 14.5-gallon fuel tank in less than 250 miles. And that's if you don't tap into the intoxicating power reserves very much, if at all (trust us, we've seen much lower).

Conclusion

Performance is the priority here in the 2012 Evolution and Ralliart; going green sure isn't.

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.
