A wide variety of accessories and aftermarket equipment for Mitsubishi vehicles is available, including body kits, engine tuning software and interior accessories. The largest amount of accessories are available for the Mitsubishi Lancer and Lancer Evolution sedans, due to their popularity in the import tuning community. The Mitsubishi Eclipse and 3000GT also have a wide selection of aftermarket accessories to choose from.
The Mitsubishi Lancer is a front-wheel drive compact sedan powered by a modest inline-four engine in its base form. Mitsubishi engineers took the basic Lancer design and made sweeping changes to almost all aspects of the car to construct the Lancer Evolution, a four-wheel drive rally vehicle intended for competition in the World Rally Championship.
Street versions of the Lancer Evolution are powered by a four-cylinder engine mated to a powerful turbocharger that boosts the engine's output to 300 horsepower or more. The high base performance and tuner-friendly turbocharging system made the Lancer Evolution very popular among tuners, leading to a plethora of aftermarket performance accessories for the vehicle from various manufacturers. Many of the accessories developed for the Lancer Evolution are also usable on the base Lancer, though parts intended to take advantage of the turbocharger of the Evolution are not compatible.
