Mitsubishi’s Lancer family grows with the mid-lineup Ralliart. Is it a bargain-basement Evo?

As the Evo moved up in performance and price, it created a hole in the Lancer lineup, one filled nicely by Subaru‘s Impreza WRX. In the interest of gaining back lost ground, Mitsubishi recently introduced the Lancer Ralliart, a turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sedan that bridges the gap between the Lancer GTS and Evolution X models.
