Used 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Review

Edmunds expert review

A fully equipped race car for under $30,000. If driving means more to you than anything else in the world, you'd be crazy not to consider the Evo.

What's new for 2004

Leather seating is now an option as is an upgraded 315-watt Infinity sound system. A new, decontented RS model has been added this year for those who want maximum performance and nothing else. The Evo RS deletes ABS, air conditioning, the rear spoiler and power features such as locks and windows. Additionally, the RS boasts a helical limited-slip differential, added structural reinforcement in the trunk and less sound-deadening material.
