The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
A lack of refinement and a poor interior will limit shoppers' interest in lower-trim Lancer models, but the Ralliart and Evolution cars both offer thrilling performance for any climate. The 2015 Nissan Sentra isn't at all the performer of the segment, but it's certainly a comfortable, spacious car for the money.
