2015 Mitsubishi Lancer vs. 2014 Nissan Sentra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Mitsubishi Lancer than in the Nissan Sentra, due to the Mitsubishi Lancer's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Nissan Sentra in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Nissan Sentra 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). The Mitsubishi Lancer is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Sentra. 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 Nissan Sentra have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Nissan Sentra. The Mitsubishi Lancer has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Sentra, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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