Take the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution for a spin and you'll quickly realize it's aimed at a very specific audience: car enthusiasts. Known in circles as the Evo, this compact sedan is built for those who love to drive hard and fast. A sophisticated all-wheel-drive system keeps the tires glued to practically any surface, while an amped-up turbocharged four-cylinder engine ensures there's always plenty of power on tap.

Standard equipment on the GSR includes 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, heated side mirrors, automatic climate control, cruise control, a leather-wrapped tilt-only steering wheel, Mitsubishi's Fuse electronics interface with voice controls, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 6.1-inch touch screen display and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio, an auxiliary audio jack, an iPod/USB audio interface and satellite radio.

The MR adds lighter-weight BBS forged alloy wheels, two-piece front brake rotors, upgraded suspension dampers and springs, xenon headlights, automatic windshield wipers, different exterior trim, key-less entry and ignition, a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and an upgraded center console.

The GSR is eligible for a Sight and Sound package, which adds the MR's xenon headlights, key-less entry and ignition and Rockford Fosgate sound system. Also available for the GSR is the Premium package, which includes the contents of the Sight and Sound package and adds a sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats and added sound insulation. An Exterior package for the GSR adds front and side air dams, rear corner extensions, brake air guides and a spoiler extension.

Available on the MR is a Touring package that includes the sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats and added sound insulation.

Optional on both trims are a navigation system with a 7-inch touch screen interface and rear parking sensors.

Every 2015 Lancer Evolution is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out 291 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. The GSR comes only with a five-speed manual transmission, while the MR features Mitsubishi's excellent six-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission with shift paddles on the steering column. Power is sent to all four wheels through an advanced all-wheel-drive system.

The EPA's estimated fuel economy stands at 19 mpg combined (17 city/23 highway) for the GSR and 19 mpg combined (17 city/22 highway) for the MR.

Standard safety features for the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution include anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, front seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag. Rear parking sensors are optional.

The Evo's interior is tame compared with its aggressive exterior styling. Aluminum pedals, fancier gauges and a different steering wheel are the only significant items differentiating the hottest Lancer from its humble brethren. That list used to include sublime Recaro sport seats, but they're not offered for the Evo's final year. If there's a silver lining here, it's that the standard driver seat is now height-adjustable.

Unlike the regular Lancer, the Evo's rear seats don't fold down, and its battery and washer fluid reservoir have been relocated to the trunk for better weight distribution.
