In order to give its customers an even better deal when opting for a new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, the Japanese company has just revealed a new edition of its powerful sedan.
The 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X SE version will slot in below the top-of-the-range MR, but above the GSR version.
The SE will combine the best of both worlds, taking options from the more hardcore MR but also things from the GSR. Specifically, the dual-clutch TC-SST gearbox, complete with three driving modes (Normal, Sport and Super-Sport) will be standard. It will push the 291 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque through the Evo’s S-AWC all-wheel drive system.
The Evo X SE sports the GSR’s front fascia, combined with a rear diffuser from the MR, and sits on upgraded Bilstein shock absorbers. Recaro seats are present on the inside, sporting a cloth material, instead of the MR’s leather.
Pricing hasn’t been announced, but expect it to sit snugly between the GSR’s $30,000 and the MR’s $40,000 tag.
