Question Just for looks - '02 Impreza Turbo or '00 Evolution VI?

Me, personally, the Lancer Evolution VI.

Impreza Turbo for sure. I can keep my wheels, we have a great msg board for support, and the start of some decent suppliers and third party resellers...

Mitsubishi's are a dime a dozen, even if it IS the EVO. I hate the name as well...

Impreza.. my friend drives a 2000 Eclipse, and it's been nothing but problems for him. The sunroof keeps banging on the roof and chipping the paint, and now it's not running right. I'm not a mitsu fan, at all.

I think the EVO is ugly. Always has been, but the EVO 3 & 4 were the least ugly.

Mmmmm... Lancer Evo VI Zero Fighter.

Might not take one over an STi, but as a second "family" car it'd be perfect! (It *is* a 4 door after all!)

The Evo VI is NOT ugly like the new '02 Impreza(until they make the cosmetic change in '03).

oh, have you seen the new impreza 2002, snoopy? which dealer was it at? how did it look in person?

until you can answer all thsoe questions starting with "Yes" and some data, don't judge the impreza based on funky angled, fisheyed pictures on this board.

OK how can you compare a 280hp EVO VI to a 220hp Impreza turbo? You on those fumes again huh?!
You should compare it to an STi WRX instead. Having said that, I shall pick up a Lotus Elise instead.

Let's reserve judgement for official pictures.

Haha...EVO.

I have a little update for all of you that picked the Mitsu...You're on the wrong web site.

Again, I have to laugh thinking how many of you will kill for the new Turbo Impreza when it shows up here in Q1 of 2001. One drive and you'll sell your mom for it. Hell, look how many people bought the current car? A 165 hp awd car that has enough useless plastic on it to almost sink the the ship it came over on. I am sure if you took off the wing and the hood scoop you would get an extra 10 mph out of the car.
Oh, if there is any question about how I feel about the current Impreza...I love it. I am just trying to make a point.

Wow! Tough crowd! And yes, dada...I have not seen a 2002 Impreza but i have seen Lancers in person two years ago. But that was the Evo V...or was it IV?

Anyway, just for looks! Sheesh, dada...and they say men don't have periods! And for your information, the pics give me a pretty good idea what it looks like. I mean, come on....there's the blue Impreza pics on the move! Still, I'm only asking. Don't be so defensive.

Um I am not sure. If we are all so performance oriented the Evo must be the choice. Isn't it THE fastest sedan out there off the market. clocking a zero - 62mph in 4.2s

although my favorite is the EVO V and ithink the VI looks really BAD, i'd have to say the Lancer but remember, we haven't seen the STi Version yet... wait until January when Prodrive starts racing it and we'll be able to compare apples and apples together...

Lancer all the way! The only reason I got a RS was cause I couldn't get a Lancer. Anyways Subaru stole its styling from Mitsubishi . I had a mitsubishi and I never had any problems with it.

When the Impreza entered the WRC in '93(I think), the next year, the Evo looked similar to the Impreza! Hood scoop, hood vents and a wider guppy front fender with fog light housing.

Can someone confirm this coz I'm not sure myself now.

If we actually had the choice between the RS or a Lancer, do you think ANY of us would be on this board?? Gimme a break. Of course, price would still have been an issue... for what it's worth, the RS has it alot going for it. Price, handling and looks. So far the spy photos show that the looks are going away... so we're left with price and performance. Is that enough? Probably not for me. I can't drive a car that looks like a Neon...

If they had the EVO VI here, I would've gotten that instead. EVO all the way. But of course, I like Imprezas just the same.

I am new to this board, so I'm not sure if you have seen this, but here are pictures of the new Lancer (which is comming to US) and the new Impreza.

Mistubishi Lancer EVO 7




Subaru Impreza WRX STi version 7


Ohh, and the specs for it:
------------------------------------------
2-litre boxer-4 Cylinder Twin-Turbo (EJ20) engine
280-ps @6,500 rpm
37.5 kg m torque maximum
Length 4,350mm
Height 1,430mm
Width not known
Cabin-controlled center differential power distribution (front/rear wheels)
Estimated release date: August 2000
------------------------------------------

Don't know about you, but they don't look like rally type anymore. More like a street race car.

Ohhh... and remember this ex-rally car?


Something tells me in that configuration this car will never do rally again. It's going to be a 3.5-litre V8 VQ35DETT.

It's a 3.5L with Direct injection Twin Turbos I think. Not exacly sure, but a japanese V8 sounds really good (especally with the turbo somewhere around it).
