The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The Mitsubishi Lancer might be positioned and priced as an economy car, but with the right equipment, it can feel like a lot more. 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.
