This week, they aired a very special show! The entire team of TV and web journalists have come together to provide you with their purchase recommendations by vehicle category.
Several talented artists draw sketches of vehicles which are, in many cases, very interesting. This week, the RPM team unearthed two sketches of compact cars that continue to appeal to sports car enthusiasts and, most importantly, relatively affordable.
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution , the EVO for those in the know, was successful from its introduction in the mid-1990s. Not only did it translate Mitsubishi’s success and heritage in motor racing onto a production car, but it also rubbed easily against other compact sports in the segment.
We know the rest. Mitsubishi oriented its development towards SUVs leaving aside cars, and it was in 2016 that the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO was withdrawn from the market to the dismay of fans of the genre. Even if some rumors persist, we know full well that Mitsubishi does not intend to revive its iconic car.
Artist Rain Prisk had fun drawing what a new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution could look like, and the exercise is quite successful. It takes us back to a bygone era, and the sketch has caught our attention simply because of the memories it brings back to life.
Subaru Impreza WRX 2022
Here is another sporty compact that has made its mark among lovers of affordable and efficient cars. Without being as evil as the WRX STI, the Subaru Impreza WRX shines with its overall performance and attractive price. We know that it will soon be offered in a new generation, several spy photos have been published on the web.
Russian site Kolesaa used the latest spy photos to create a fairly accurate rendering of what the fourth-generation Subaru WRX 2022 will look like. The model is expected to retain its attributes, including its hood incorporating a large air intake and angular lines but with a touch of modernism.
The current WRX is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine found under the hood of the Forester XT; it develops an output of 268 horsepower and produces a torque of 258 pound-feet. Rumors have it that the next generation could receive a 2.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder FA24 engine that could reach 400 horsepower.
After more than 7 years of marketing, it is high time for the current generation to give up its place.
