Car reviews - Mitsubishi - Lancer - Ralliart Evo VI sedan
24 Aug 2001
IN typical Japanese car fashion, Evo's indicator stalk is on the right-hand side and the power windows controls on the driver's door armrest. There is an auto-down function only for the driver's window. There is no rear wiper, but there are internal controls for rear foglights, headlight beam adjustment and instrument illumination, plus an interesting water-spray button which sends a cooling burst of water onto the throttle body to cool the intake charge when under-bonnet temperatures rise. Evo controls also include electric mirrors and floor-mounted internal boot and fuel cap release levers. There is also a driver's footrest and the steering wheel adjusts for height only.
