2014 Acura TSX vs. 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Acura TSX offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat 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 TSX.

Convenience
With the Acura TSX 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura TSX will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Destination Charge for the Acura TSX is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Dimensions
The Acura TSX is a little wider than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura TSX, which is slightly longer than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Drivetrain
The Acura TSX has much less torque than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura TSX has a smaller turning radius than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX is significantly less powerful than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TSX and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Acura TSX 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 TSX than that of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
