For all you Apple owners out there, there’s a reason to rejoice concerning the new Lancer Evolution. It’s actually coming with a trim model that will make it possible to get Apple CarPlay in the vehicle so you can take advantage of all the connectivity. You just have to go for the Lancer Limited Edition or the trim level just above the base. It’s actually pretty affordable and is a good investment if you want the extras without paying a fortune for them.
Enjoy the Tech Goodies
By going for the Limited Edition Lancer Evo you get both Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto, both firsts for the Lancer. Up until now if you wanted those two tech goodies you had to invest in the Mirage or the Outlander, which did nothing for the car guys out there looking for an option for the Lancer. The 6.5” infotainment unit solves all of those issues and opens up a whole new set of features for 2017 Lancer owners.
Not only does the special trim level on the Lancer bring tech goodies, but it comes with some aesthetic enhancements such as badging and an upscale interior, and it does all this at an affordable price point as well.
The upscale trim model comes with a bunch of black accents that really add to the aggression factor. It features the roof, fender trim, door mirrors, grill trim and the wheels themselves are all painted black, which looks pretty cool if you ask us.
A Low Cost Upgrade
If you decide that you’re interested in the Lancer EVO Limited Edition, you’ll only have to pay about $2,000 more than you would for the base model. That means you’ll still be under 20k on the purchase, making it very affordable for most new car buyers. You can pick up a better version of the Lancer with more tech, and you’ll be happy to report that the price still comes in lower than many other mid-sized sedans on the market today.
The Limited Edition Lancer EVO isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking at the base model you should strongly consider spending the extra two grand for the next trim level up, because you get quite a lot for your money.
