2015 Chrysler 300 vs. 2015 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 Chrysler 300 than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300, drivers may find the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Chrysler 300 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). Whether you pick the Chrysler 300 or the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Chrysler 300 is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 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 Chrysler 300, 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 Chrysler 300 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has about the same turning radius as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chrysler 300 and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chrysler 300 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Warranty
The Chrysler 300 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
