The first came in 1992, Mitsubishi Evo and Subaru Impreza quickly followed a year later. From that moment, these two cars became arch rival, often locking horns in the tough stages of the World Rally Championship, and in the pub bragging game as the debate raged about what is better, IMPREZA or Evo.

On paper these two seem identical cars, both 2 liter turbo charged engine, permanent four-wheel drive
and through the many changes that followed the two grew increasingly conspicuous wings, flaps and burning wheel.


No matter which one of these road rockets Japanese eventually favored the general consensus of opinion was for a single lap of the race track on the Mitsubishi Evo was nervous a lot more fun. However, for the unity of the track and stick with it easier, but equally capable Subaru Impreza.

Unfortunately, while both the Evo and IMPREZA born to compete in the demanding gravel, asphalt and dirt roads strewn floor of the rally stage, the manufacturers have withdrawn from the competition and the prestige and respect that once was lost . After all, where else could you see your favorite car to win a round of the World Rally Championship at the weekend, and then use the same version on Monday morning for your commute.

Since its glory days of meeting to begin to slip in the past, Mitsubishi and Subaru have released new versions of its legendary vehicles as the Evo X and Subaru Sti. However, it is the era of four-door supercar dining beginning to happen? Especially now that the front wheel drive hot hatch seems to be making a comeback.


While Mitsubishi has continued with the four-door saloon theme, Subaru has branched out with new courage and a IMPREZA gate. Time will tell if this has been a success, but their bulbs xenon headlights powerful in front of his big spoiler wing on the rear, both cars still look ready to take on a rally stage, and that More importantly, both cars have the performance and handling of more exotic machinery humble.


Unfortunately, the motor press has not been too kind to any of these new versions, with many believing that the previous generations of Evo IMPREZA and offers greater driver involvement and enjoyment. This problem has been compounded by the new range of hot hatches Ford, Vauxhall and Renault, which offer similar levels of performance for less effort.

The latest Mitsubishi Evo and Subaru Impreza cars are still incredible, but no longer have the field to themselves as manufacturers of vehicles and try to save more in their production, we can begin to see these niche models disappearing.
