2014 Mitsubishi Lancer vs. 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mitsubishi Lancer offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Civic Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Hybrid, the Mitsubishi Lancer may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Honda Civic Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mitsubishi Lancer, due to its tank size and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mitsubishi Lancer will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Civic Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mitsubishi Lancer and the Honda Civic Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mitsubishi Lancer does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Lancer has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Lancer has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Civic Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mitsubishi Lancer than that of the Honda Civic Hybrid.
