The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Driving enthusiasts will find that the Ralliart and Evo deliver thrilling performance; but a drab interior and general lack of refinement limit the appeal of other models in the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer lineup. The 2014 Subaru WRX and STI lack an automatic transmission and decent fuel economy, but they're fun to drive in just about any weather, and they're comfortable for long commutes, too.
