2015 Mazda Mazda6 vs. 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer 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 Mazda Mazda6 than the Mitsubishi Lancer. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda Mazda6, drivers may find the Mitsubishi Lancer a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Mazda Mazda6 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mitsubishi Lancer, 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). The Mazda Mazda6 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 Mazda Mazda6 and the Mitsubishi Lancer have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mazda Mazda6 is much wider than the Mitsubishi Lancer, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mazda Mazda6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mitsubishi Lancer.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mazda Mazda6 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Lancer.

Handling
The Mazda Mazda6 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Lancer, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mazda Mazda6 is somewhat more powerful than the Mitsubishi Lancer.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mazda Mazda6 and the Mitsubishi Lancer. The Mazda Mazda6 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Lancer.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Mazda Mazda6 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Lancer.
