I never hear this car talked about, but everything I read puts it right in the class of the MS3, WRX, and Focus ST performance wise. The interior isn't great but it does have AWD. I always forget they even exist until I see one.
They also start like $1000 cheaper than the WRX in Canada and have 0% over 72 months. One review called it 90% of an Evo for 75% of the price.
I remember a few years ago the Ralliart package was just badging but the 09+ seems pretty interesting. I consider them almost sleepers because there is barely anything visual to tell them apart from a upper level regular Lancer other than the badging on the outside.
What says TCL?
