2015 Mitsubishi Lancer vs. 2014 Subaru Impreza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mitsubishi Lancer offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Impreza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Lancer, drivers may find the Subaru Impreza a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Subaru Impreza requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mitsubishi Lancer, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Subaru Impreza. 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 Subaru Impreza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Lancer is a little wider than the Subaru Impreza, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Mitsubishi Lancer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Impreza.

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

Handling
The Mitsubishi Lancer has a smaller turning radius than the Subaru Impreza, 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 Subaru Impreza.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Subaru Impreza. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Mitsubishi Lancer as you will in the Subaru Impreza.

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