Japanese Sedans Fight: Mitsubishi vs Toyota

October 2, 2012 at 09:56

Today we will see two great vehicles from the known Japanese automakers will be fighting with each other. Both of the models that we are now warming up for a good show are known as the Japanese dream-cars. They claim that in the TV-commercials, so let’s see whose dream will be more realistic today. We have new 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution on one side and 2012 Toyota Camry on the other!

At first, let’s see what about the price. New Toyota is more economic even in terms of initial investment, as its price tag was set at $24,775. New Mitsubishi, apparently for the great upgrade that it has undergone, asks for $34,495. In terms of the core new Camry model got the 2.5-Liter I4 with 16 valves, that produces 178-horsepower. New Mitsubishi in turn got the 2.0-Liter I4 with 16 valves and produces 291-horsepower. As the volume is bigger, we could expect that new Lancer Evolution will be less economic in terms of fuel consumption. In the end it is true, new Mitsubishi gives you 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Toyota in turn offers 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.

So in the end we will still say that Toyota is more of a city car, but if you want more sport, go for Lancer!
