2014 Acura TL vs. 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura TL than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura TL.

Convenience
With the Acura TL you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura TL is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TL will cost more in transportation costs than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TL is much wider than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura TL, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TL doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Handling
The Acura TL has about the same turning radius as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura TL has less horsepower than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TL and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Acura TL will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura TL than that of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
