2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution vs. 2014 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid than the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Convenience
With the Toyota Avalon Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, 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 Evolution will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Avalon 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 Evolution and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is a little narrower than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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

Handling
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon 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 Evolution and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
