Stand Out Features
24 Aug 2001
THERE are many stand-out features in the Evo, not least the adjustable double-deck rear wing, the weight-saving aluminium bonnet, the superb Recaro seats and Momo steering wheel, the 103kW/litre engine and throttle body water-spray. But the most interesting and effective is the Active Yaw Control diff. Using a number of engine, steering and wheel sensors to detect when the car yaws, or gets sideways, the system works ingeniously well without dulling the driving experience.

Did you know?Based on the all-new CE Lancer of late 1996, the 1997 Evo IV was also vastly updated to include a helical front LSD and an Active Yaw Control rear diff. The 4G63 engine stayed but received wholesale changes, including new cams and pistons, a metal head gasket and twin-scroll turbo. The result was 206kW at 6500rpm and 360Nm at 3000rpm
