With so many top-notch sedans and compact cars on the market, it can be difficult to choose which vehicle is right for you. To help you out, we’ve put together a comparison of four popular models – the Honda Civic Sedan, the Chevy Cruze Limited, the Hyundai Elantra, and the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer – on a handful of vital factors:
When it comes to the fuel tank, the Lancer has a much larger capacity than the Honda Civic and the Elantra, with a fuel tank capacity of 15.5 gallons. This translates to less frequent stops at the gas station.
As for audio and tech, the Lancer comes with a lengthy list of features, such as a parking aid, satellite radio, and more – while the other three models are hit or miss across the board for popular, modern features.
Where safety is concerned – the Lancer comes with both an immobilizer and a knee airbag, while the Civic and the Elantra can’t say the same. And lastly, the latest Lancer model is much more affordable than the Cruze Limited.
We think it’s safe to say that the Mitsubishi Lancer is the right choice. Want to learn more about the Lancer, or check one out in person? Contact us or visit us anytime at Bell Mitsubishi.
