Looking at these comparisons the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer falls within the middle of the road.​  While not the cheapest model, it does have a few more features to show than the Volkswagen Jetta, such as the optional power moonroof and fog lights, and still has more power than the Mazda3 with 148 horsepower compared to the Mazda3’s 115.​  Safety, being a strong point for Mitsubishi continues to do well for the Lancer with a 5 star overall crash test rating with the Jetta only earning 4.​  Looking at the warranty information, the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer has no competition.​  Compared to both models the Lancer has almost double the warranty of the other two.​  The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer comes out of this comparison looking strong by being affordable with some features to offer that the other models don’t have!​  ​ ​
