I don't think Mitsubishi want exactly sway luxury car buyers to get the MR. They want to expand the MR moniker to the people who are upgrading from their 10-20k cars to 30-40k cars. Evo X MR is by no means a luxury car , it is just a trim of the Evo X that offers a bit of luxury, so I personally can not see waves and waves of MB and BMW drivers putting deposits on the Evo X MR, which I don't think is Mitsubishi's intent anyways. It is good that the niche market for evo is small, so I can feel different when I drive the Evo on the street. :thumbup:Here is the catch. Most of the ppl that can afford this car (MR) are the kind of ppl that demand higher standards from a vehicle, these are the people who buy BMW, ACURA, and Lexus. I cant see them switching from these brands over to an MR EVO. The ppl who cant afford the MR EVO are the people who really want to get in one.
word, more exclusivity, less ricers driving them which is good. Although i wish they gave tad more for the moneyWell, the one good thing about it is that when you do get one, there wont be 10 other evos driving down the road with you. There is something nice about being different. I want one and I can afford it as well, but there are other factors that come into play especially when the scale seems loop sided. The thing that is going to make it hard for me is my wife, when she sees the price of an MR, she is going to ask too many questions - not a good thing lol.
