New EVO 10


Recommended Posts

Hey all, today i went for a test drive on the new EVO 10. I got to the dealers around 10:15am waited 2 hours but it was worth the wait. The drive was quite good, clutch feels soft for a sports car, the car feels very light around corners. anyway here's a pic.

the power was great, but out of some corners it felt the rear was going sideways. The evo that i took out was the base model so $64,000 on the road. The inside looks a bit simple thou.

sideways can be fun lol... the evos where never know to have a flashy interior. Pretty much you want something thats quick and all you care about is being quick you get an evo if you want something thats quick and comfortable you get a wrx sti.

How did you manage to score the test drive?

If I was to get one, I wouldn't get the MR version as it comes with the 6 speed sequential. I'd go the base model with the sports pack as it comes with a 5 speed gearbox plus its way cheaper. I'd also get a white one. White with the black surrounds looks awesome.

I have a TRD Aurion and I STILL want an Evo 10. It is that sexy. Went to the dealership last weekend to have a look, blew me away. Sadly, they won't accept test drives unless you put in an order and pay a deposit of $1,000. Perfectly understandable though....every hoon will be trying to get their hands on one. If I were inclined to buy the Evo, I would be happy to buy it without a test drive. The name itself is enough to seal the deal.

But after I thought about it a while, logic still prevails....the TRD is still more comfortable as an "everyday" car, and will the extra 0.5 seconds to 100km/h really matter? As it is, I've never pushed my car to the max yet, and I probably won't in the Evo either. The TRD is about as rare as the Evo, and gets plenty of stares. A few years down the road, I will reconsider when they release Evo 12 or the TRD Aurion Mark 3.
