The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.3
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2017 Nissan Sentra spiffs up its performance in SR Turbo trim, but it's still more a need-to-buy than an want-to-buy car.
