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

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 Hybrid 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 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid will cost more in transportation costs than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid 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 Hybrid, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

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

Handling
The Lincoln MKZ Hybrid 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 Hybrid 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 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
