2014 Audi A4 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 Audi A4 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 Audi A4.

Convenience
With the Audi A4 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 Audi A4 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 Audi A4 is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A4, which is slightly longer than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Handling
The Audi A4 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 Audi A4 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 Audi A4 and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi A4 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 Audi A4 than that of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
