Derived from the well-engineered global C-platform, the 2013 Lancer Evolution possesses an exceptionally well-fortified platform and an advanced suspension system derived from years of world rally competition.
Engineers have made the most of high-tech lightweight but exceptionally strong materials. Components such as the engine block and suspension control arms are composed of aluminum, as well as a good portion of the body (the roof, hood, front fenders, and front and rear bumper beams) to help reduce overall vehicle weight. Weight distribution has been further enhanced by locating both the battery and the windshield washer fluid tank inside the trunk area.
All 2013 Lancer Evolution models feature a well-tuned suspension design that consists of inverted MacPherson struts up front wîth a multi-link at the rear, a race-ready Brembo® braking system wîth 4-piston calipers wîth 13.8-inch diameter rotors (front) and 2-piston calipers wîth 13.0-inch diameter rotors (rear), 4-channel Sport ABS and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD).
The 2013 Lancer Evolution MR further increases the performance quotient thanks to the fitment of lightweight two-piece Brembo® brake rotors up front (saving 2.9 lbs. of unsprung weight at each wheel), accompanied by Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs at all four corners.
Additional road-hugging performance is attained through the fitment of high-grip 245/40R18 Yokohama ADVAN asymmetrical performance tires wrapped around 18 x 8.5-inch wheels (Enkei cast-alloy on GSR and BBS® forged-alloy on MR) on all four axles.
Helping to protect the vehicle's occupants in the event of an accident are Mitsubishi's patented next-generation Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) technology to help disperse energy from the cabin section as well as the fuel system, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and a supplemental restraint system (SRS) wîth occupant sensors and a total of seven air bags: a driver's side knee air bag, two front, two seat-mounted side-impact air bags and two side curtain air bags.
