2014 Mitsubishi Lancer vs. 2014 Toyota Corolla Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
With the Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla. 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 Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Handling
The Mitsubishi Lancer has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Corolla, 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 Toyota Corolla.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Lancer and the Toyota Corolla. The Mitsubishi Lancer has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Corolla, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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