An Independent Auto Dealer Not Directly Affiliated with Mercedes-Benz Or Any Other Manufacturer
Both the Lancer and the V60 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front-wheel drive, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.
The Lancer comes with a full 5 year/60,000 mile basic warranty, which covers the entire car and includes 24 hour roadside assistance. The V60’s 4 year/50,000 mile basic warranty expires 1 year and 10,000 miles sooner.
Mitsubishi’s powertrain warranty covers the Lancer 6 years and 50,000 miles longer than Volvo covers the V60. Any repair needed on the engine, transmission, axles, joints or driveshafts is fully covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles. Coverage on the V60 ends after only 4 years or 50,000 miles.
There are over 69 percent more Mitsubishi dealers than there are Volvo dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Lancer’s warranty.
To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Mitsubishi Lancer uses regular unleaded gasoline. The V60 requires premium for maximum efficiency, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.
For better maneuverability, the Lancer’s turning circle is 4.3 feet tighter than the V60’s (32.8 feet vs. 37.1 feet).
The Mitsubishi Lancer may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 650 pounds less than the Volvo V60.
The Lancer offers a remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The V60 doesn’t offer a remote starting system.
