2014 Honda Civic vs. 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Lancer with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Mitsubishi Lancer will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience

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 Honda Civic is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Lancer. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Mitsubishi Lancer have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Lancer. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Lancer.

Drivetrain

Handling

Performance
