The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
From true economy car to sophisticated junior sport sedan or sporty hatchback, the 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer has it covered—albeit with a few flaws. The 2010 Nissan Sentra looks plain on the outside and is only offered in one body style, but there's a lot to love for shoppers who value a comfortable, well-appointed interior.
