2016 Mitsubishi Lancer vs. 2017 Toyota Camry Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Mitsubishi Lancer, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry, the Mitsubishi Lancer may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry 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). Based on MSRP, the Mitsubishi Lancer is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Camry. 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 Toyota Camry have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Lancer is much slimmer than the Toyota Camry, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mitsubishi Lancer is slightly shorter than the Toyota Camry, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Toyota Camry do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Performance
The Mitsubishi Lancer has less horsepower than the Toyota Camry, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Toyota Camry. The Mitsubishi Lancer has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Camry, 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 Toyota Camry.
