The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Ralliart might not make the best daily drivers, but they're among the most athletic, track-ready performers for the money. If you can get past the often-confusing iDrive system, the 2012 BMW 1-Series offers a great blend of style, power, handling, and luxury at a sometimes reasonable, sometimes objectionable price.
