Car Lease Specials: Mitsubishi Evo X
The much awaited Evo X straight from the Mitsubishi assembly line is definitely one of the car lease specials to beat this year. Eagerly anticipated, the super sedan is now landing on shores foreign to Japan, specifically in Europe and soon in North America
This one of many car lease specials was first previewed by Mitsubishi earlier in 2007 and was dubbed, at the time, Prototype X, a concept that would soon turn out to be the future Evolution X. The finished product is now proudly out and features a Super All Wheel Control drive system and a Twin Clutch Sport Shift Transmission. Powered by a 2.9 liter turbocharged four cylinder motor that produces 295 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque, the Evo X is a force to be reckoned with.
With the S-AWC system will be included all sorts of features including Active Standby Control, Active Center Differential, Active Yaw Control (required to keep the Evo X on its path), and Sport ABS which is an ABS system specifically designed for aggressive drivers. The twin clutch system seems to have been modeled after the VW’s DSG. The system has 3 modes, those being Normal, Sport, and S-Sport, the latter allowing the most aggressive of shifts. Now this is definitely one of the car lease specials that people will enjoy.
This is a supercar that one can lease or own for a fraction of the cost that usual supercars are priced for. At about over $50,000, it may not seem cheap but it is definitely a competitive price up against BMW and the almighty Benz. Can Mitsubishi's Evo X be one of the car lease specials of the year? Looks quite promising and only time will tell.
