2017 Mitsubishi Lancer VS 2017 Ford Fiesta Sedan
168 Max Horsepower 120
Available All-Wheel Drive Not Available

When it comes to horsepower, the Lancer is ready to impress. Not only does the top trim provide far more horsepower than the Fiesta at any trim level, but even the base model ES Lancer has 148 horsepower which is still more than the highest performance numbers from the Fiesta sedan.

Interestingly, the Lancer also offers all-wheel drive. This isn’t some high priced feature that’s only available on the highest trim level either. Instead, it comes standard on three out of five Lancer trim levels. With AWD, you can drive through bad weather and conditions with some peace of mind. The Fiesta doesn’t offer AWD at all.

93 Cubic-Feet Passenger Room 85 Cubic-Feet
Standard Automatic Climate Control Available

The first thing that ensures your comfort in any car is simply having the room to stretch out. If you’ve ever been in a Fiesta, you’ll know that stretching out isn’t exactly an option. The Lancer on the other hand is a far different situation with 8 cubic-feet of additional room, you will quickly notice the difference.

The second thing that keeps you comfortable in a car is temperature. A car is out in the elements and you want to avoid both the heat and the cold. Not only does the Lancer have standard air conditioning and heat much like the Fiesta, but it also has standard automatic climate control on every trim level, something only the top Fiesta trim provides standard.
