The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Suzuki Forenza still offers a lot of features for the money, but its older design lags in performance, refinement, and safety. The 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer is a basic but sporty sedan with some tech features not often offered in this class.
