2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution vs. 2016 Volkswagen CC Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution than in the Volkswagen CC, due to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC.

With the Volkswagen CC 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.

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). Whether you pick the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution or the Volkswagen CC, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Volkswagen CC.

Since the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is much slimmer than the Volkswagen CC, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Volkswagen CC.

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 Volkswagen CC.

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

When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen CC. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen CC.
