The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
4.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Focus has great road manners and scorching high-performance editions, but it's compromised by a small back seat. The 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer has a cheap-looking interior, it's noisy on the road, and the gas mileage isn't remotely up to par; it's showing its 11 years of age and will likely appeal only to value-for-money shoppers.
