The 2016 Subaru WRX STI versus the 2015 Mitsubishi EVO X MR. Though the real winner is likely the 2016 Ford Focus RS, the battle between the EVO and STI was seemingly going to be a never ending debate. That is until Mitsubishi announced 2015 is the final model year for the Lancer Evolution.
Both of these cars feature turbocharged four cylinder engines producing around 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. They both have sophisticated AWD systems with active center differentials and helical limited slip differentials for the front axle. The Mitsubishi features a torque vectoring rear differntial, while the Subaru employs a Torsen style limited slip diff. Both have immense traction in nearly any condition with the right tires.
The STI’s many small victories make it the champion. Less weight with more power, a more adaptable driving position, sharp short-ratio steering, a much nicer interior and infotainment system, more cargo space, a longer range on each tank of gas, and a wonderful 6 speed manual transmission. But if we’re being honest, there are no winners here. With the death of the EVO, Subaru was able to be more conservative on the design of the new STI, with power levels relatively unchanged since 2004. So here’s to the new Ford Focus RS for bringing competition back to the AWD hot hatch segment.
