Illustration for article titled Detroit Auto Show: 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart

The Ralliart is Mitsubishi's middle man between the Mitsubishi Lancer GTS and the Lancer EVO. The obvious rally-inspired Ralliart has a 2.0-liter, four cylinder engine sporting 235 horsepower, which is up 67 hp from the GTS, but not quite the 291 of the latest Evolution X has. It does feature Mitsubishi's dual-clutch SST automanual with paddle shifters and an active center differential to let you rally your little heart out in suburbia America. It is slated for a summer release.

If this thing gets decent gas mileage I'll own one some day. I've got a 2008 Lancer and except for the CVT it's a very nice car for the money. AWD and a little power would make it sweeeet.
