Each time I get behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, I wish for one small, but very specific improvement. Not a higher quality interior. Not a more compliant suspension. Not a smoother powertrain. These are important in everyday cars but the Evo doesn’t fall into this category. Instead, what this five-foot four woman wishes for each and every time is a height adjustable driver’s seat. If the Evo came equipped with normal car seats it might not be such an issue but the Recaros are so deeply recessed that I feel like I’m sitting in a hole. Until I get my wish, maybe Mitsubishi can add a New York City phone book to the standard equipment list?
