Lancer SE is AWD. Both similar power. Honda will get better MPG. Both are about the same reliability wise.....and don't let anyone else try to fool you on that. Mitsubishi is a VERY reliable company. I would know, I work on them everyday. The Lancer is also the IIHS top safety pick.

If you see a lot of snow/ice in your area, the Lancer is the better choice. Its AWD system (Aptly named AWC [All Wheel Control]) is the best AWD system on the market behind its big brother S-AWC(S being "Super") found on the Evo Xs and Nissan's ATTESA-ETS found on the 08'+ GTR. Honda doesn't have an AWD system in the same league. Subaru has a good system but as far a ranking systems go:

1.Nissan's ATTESA-ETS 08'+

2.Mitsubishi's S-AWC

3.Mitsubishi's AWC

4.Subaru's Symmetrical

5. Nissan's Standard ATTESA

6. Acura/Honda SH-AWD

blah blah blah

I dont care what anyone says honda is the way to go. First off Lancer evos are awesome a normal lancer isnt even worth talking about but ill tell you right now that the evo will kill the honda in a race because they have a turbo and handle exceptionally well but they will nickel and dime you to death. Every mitsubishi Ive owned has had problems and they were brand new when i bought them. Ive never had a problem with any of my hondas and my accord has 260,000 miles on it with the original clutch. Dont buy a mitsubishi they are the worst japenese car company ever. Honda or toyota is the way to go for japenese so in this case go with the accord coupe!
