Interior and Exterior are a five star in my opinion and ill explain in one word why; Customization.

The 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is an affordable Lancer sedan, fitted with some well-configured sport upgrades, while the 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution gets more sophisticated bones, track-honed components, and serious performance hardware that makes it capable of outperforming much more expensive sports cars. While there's nothing very impressive from a design standpoint, there are no glaring deficiencies either; the instrument panel is straightforward and businesslike, while most of the interior appears as it is: a slightly dressed-up economy-car cabin. A brake override system is added to all models, and the various trim lines receive new features. The Evolution packs a 291-horsepower, 2.

In the affected vehicles, the clutch master cylinder can fail. The gauges are covered by a sculpted cowl, which lends the cockpit a sleek, sporty look.

There really isn't that much of a difference in appearance between the two models on the outside—with more aggressive wheels, a slightly different front fascia, and an added rear spoiler for the Evolution—even if the Evo has further structural differences and an aluminum roof. A five-door Sportback version of the Ralliart was new last year; it's a rather conventional, swept-back hatchback in appearance, but it works just as well with the aggressive front end and it's just a matter of personal taste as to which one's better. Additional safety and security equipment includes interior head-impact protection, a tire pressure monitoring system, 4-wheel antilock disc brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, active stability control with traction control logic, antitheft engine immobilizer and antitheft security alarm system.

Although the Lancer sedan is available with an optional split-folding backseat to increase luggage space, the shape of the car limits what you can fit in the trunk.
