2014 Lincoln MKZ 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 Lincoln MKZ than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKZ, drivers may find the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Lincoln MKZ 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 Lincoln MKZ 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 Lincoln MKZ is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

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

Handling
The Lincoln MKZ 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 Lincoln MKZ is somewhat more powerful than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

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