Let's see how the sporty 2017 Lancer compact sedan from Mitsubishi stacks up against another popular compact car, the Toyota Corolla.

The 2017 Lancer Outperforms the Toyota Corolla

When you want an economical compact car that still offers plenty of power and is a blast to drive, Mitsubishi's Lancer has got you covered. Powered by a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, the 2017 Lancer base model generates an impressive 148 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque. A more powerful 2.4-liter MIVEC engine is also available and is a popular option among Lancer buyers. While practical, the 2017 Toyota Corolla likely will not surprise anyone with its output. Its smaller 1.8-liter engine develops just 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately for Corolla shoppers, there is no alternative engine available in Toyota's compact sedan, so a lowly 132 horses will have to do.

Mitsubishi's Lancer is Feature-Rich Inside and Out

Compact cars are meant to provide exceptional value for drivers and families. While both of these compact sedans offer great value, the Mitsubishi Lancer once again outmatches Toyota's Corolla. You see, every 2017 Lancer comes standard with desirable amenities like automatic climate control, front fog lights and signaling side mirrors -- none of which are available on the 2017 Corolla base model. Furthermore, optional features on the 2017 Lancer base model like a power sunroof/moonroof, satellite radio and a navigation system are not offered on the base model of the 2017 Corolla. For those features on Toyota's compact car, car buyers would need to upgrade to a more expensive Corolla trim level.
