Exterior Design
General Export model year 2009 LANCER EVOLUTION

New front-end design

The exterior design uses aerodynamics
to create a deep sensation of continuous
movement combined with an image of
stylish boldness. The new Lancer Evolution
features an advanced and aggressive front
face new to Mitsubishi Motors sedans,
combining an inverted-slant nose with a
trapezoidal front grill to achieve efficient
engine cooling with aerodynamic

New rear bumper design

The lower part of the rear bumper uses a
diffuser form to improve aerodynamics
and give a stylish accent to the rear view.
The rear combination lamps use a kick-form
lens that promotes a smoother airflow.

Optional equipments include

245/40R18 + 18" alloy wheel <ENKEI>

brake (OPT C01)

and lower panels to adjust as needed, while the
slim airfoil provides ideal stabilization.
Interior Design
General Export model year 2009 LANCER EVOLUTION

Standard interior features include one-touch anti-trapping power windows, leather wrapped steering/shift knob
and multi information display.

The Lancer Evolution is a competition based vehicle; due to the drastic reduction of noise-insulation
materials, interior noise and vibration levels will be higher than those of normal production vehicles.

4B11 MIVEC engine

Mitsubishi Motors’ Lancer Evolution IX received wide acclaim for its
revolutionary 4G63 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine, and now
the New Lancer Evolution surpasses its predecessor with a 4B11 MIVEC
twin scroll turbo engine. The new high-performance power plant has
been developed to stand at the forefront of the motor sports field,
yet also boasts improved fuel efficiency and emissions reduction.
Compared to the current 4G63 engine, the 4B11 MIVEC twin scroll
turbo engine has the advantage of greatly enhanced responsiveness.
With a maximum output of 217 kW (295 PS)/6,500 rpm and maximum
torque of 366 N • m (37.3 kg • m)/3,500 rpm, it surpasses the torque
capabilities of the 4G63, in addition to being tuned for greater torque
across the low-rev range. This allows the transmission gear ratio to
be adjusted for overall superior power efficiency.
The biggest difference in this
engine is its cast aluminum cylinder
block. Compared to the current model
which uses a steel cylinder block, this
engine is 12.5 kg lighter. Furthermore,
the layout has been modified to place
the air intake toward the front, and
the exhaust toward the rear. Because
the exhaust no longer needs to be
4 run beneath the engine, the entire
structure can be lowered by 10 mm,
lowering the vehicle’s overall center
of gravity.

Aluminum compressor/Titanium-aluminum turbine turbocharger

In addition to being much lighter, the new compressor wheel
design creates greater intake effectiveness for more torque at
low- and mid-rev ranges, plus improved supercharger response.

Intake & exhaust system

The rear-oriented exhaust layout makes the exhaust piping
shorter and more direct. In addition, output losses are reduced
by the larger intake port, increased main muffler capacity and
large-diameter dual tail pipe arrangement. The space saved by
the new layout of the intake and rear exhaust, in addition to
moving the battery to the trunk space, has made it possible to
achieve a smoother airflow through the air filter and intercooler,
with lower aerodynamic drag.

5-speed manual transmission

The 5-speed transmission has been optimized for the new Lancer
Evolution’s more efficient next-generation engine, delivering
high torque performance even with its more compact design.
The gearing from first to fourth gear is based on a cross-ratio that
has been successful in motor sports, employing a large first gear
ratio for better starts. Fifth gear ratio uses the same small size as
the current model, delivering high cruising performance. A multi-
synchro system for high-speed shifting has been adopted for first
through third gears, as well as fourth and fifth gear, providing
sporty shift control that’s also highly durable. Shifting in the new
Lancer Evolution is responsive and enjoyable, with a distinctively
sporty sensation that makes the driver feel completely in control.

Light weight body

To reduce the overall vehicle weight, the roof panel, engine hood, front
fenders and front and rear bumper beams have all been made with
lightweight aluminum. In addition to increasing body rigidity while
lowering weight, weight reduction has been focused on the upper
part of the vehicle to improve control and performance.

brembo® ventilated disc brake (OPT C01)

The diameter of the brakes has been increased to
improve damping force and reduce the effects of
brake fade. The 18-inch ventilated front disc brakes
and 17-inch ventilated rear disc brakes were
developed jointly with brembo®.

These brakes do have a tendency to produce noise
and brake dust, but this is a normal characteristic of
high-performance brakes. After purchase the driver
should try to avoid making emergency stops for the
first 500 km.

SRS airbag
The driver’s and front passenger’s front dual-stage the driver’s knee airbag is included to safeguard the
SRS airbags in the new Lancer Evolution inflate in driver’s legs and provide an even greater degree of
two stages depending on the severity of the impact, full-body protection.
