Turning cycle

How bad is the turning circle on the Evo, was out in the car today and a road I normally do an easy u turn in my 5 series BMW I couldn’t make in the Evo 6. Had to put the car in reverse as I would of been up the kerb in a much smaller car.

Turning cycle

Evo 6's are really not good at three point turns - however they are much better at power slides

I reckon a container ship could turn in a tighter space than my 7....

If you mean the turning circle radius, then yeah on an Evo (well my 3 9's at least) its pretty much as bad as it gets. My local Mcdonalds drive thru i have to use the left lane as if i use the right i have to reverse to make it round the right hand bend without kerbing my wheels. Coming from a BMW makes the problem even worse, as the 2 BMW's I've owned, (E46 325Ti, and an E90 330D) have the tightest turning circles of any cars I've owned....The only other car I've owned with as poor a turning circle as the Evo was a Pulsar GTi-R.
