In-game description[]

"Possessing a new bumper and improved suspension; the 6th generation Lancer Evo."

With the full model change of the base grade Lancer in 1995, the body of the Lancer Evolution was also reborn as the Evo IV. In contrast to the wild aerodynamic parts equipped on the Evo III, it became simple and sleek, but with better streamlined aerodynamics.

The major change in its mechanism was the abandoning of the 3 axle format that was characteristic of Mitsubishi FF's until then, to adopt a more typical 2 axle power train so that the countershaft within the transmission could be eliminated. This was done to reduce drive loss and to save weight, and because of this change, the mounting position of the 4G63 engine was flipped over and moved over towards the left when facing the car from the front.

Also another major addition was the introduction of the AYC (Active Yaw Control). This is a mechanism that actively differentiates the rotation of the right and left rear tires to improve the turning performance of the car. Their rival Impreza had a very good body balance, and cornering performance was the EVO's weakness against them. Marking a significant improvement with the introduction of the AYC, it later became a defining feature of the Lancer Evo.

The engine output also reached 276 HP, the self imposed limit set by Japanese automakers in this model. However, because the larger body size incurred a 90 kg weight increase from the first generation model, there was no significant improvement in overall performance. Still, the twin scrolling turbo's improved torque at low to mid speed, and ease of control improved greatly.

Unfortunately, its larger body and increased weight, as well as the somewhat inadequate level of completion as a racing machine, actually caused it to eat the dust of its earlier generation models at times. Still, the improvements that were made in this model would ultimately lead to the drastic evolution made in the EVO V.
