2017 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 2.4 AWC

vs. 2017 Hyundai Elantra SE

When shopping for a new sedan, two popular options are the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer and the Hyundai Elantra. When digging a little deeper, however, there are actually some big differences. In this comparison, we’re putting the Lancer ES 2.4 AWC up against the Elantra SE.



When you purchase a Lancer, you’ll get Mitsubishi’s exclusive MIVEC engine (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control). This engine is only available on Mitsubishis and brings you the optimal combination of efficiency, power, and control. The engine on the Elantra SE can’t compete with the Lancer. Plus, the Lancer is known for having much more agile handling than the Elantra.


We know our customers lead busy lives. That’s why it’s so important to have a vehicle with plenty of features to enhance convenience and the overall driving experience. Here are a few features that come standard on the Lancer, but are optional on the Elantra:

  • Vehicle Anti-Theft System
  • Auto-Off Headlights
  • Front Floor Mats
  • Steering Wheel Controls
  • Heated Mirrors

There are also features that come standard or optional on this trim of the Lancer that you can’t even get on the Elantra SE, such as:

  • Fog lamps
  • Luggage rack
  • Rear parking aid
  • Remote engine start
  • Navigation system
  • HD Radio


The Lancer ES 2.4 AWC comes in at $20,295, and the Hyundai Elantra SE starts at $17,150. This may seem like a huge difference, but when you consider all the extra features you get on the Lancer such as those listed above, it’s worth it. If you were to upgrade the Elantra in order to get similar features, you would end up having to pay the same amount, if not more, and still wouldn’t get the option of some of the features the Lancer has to offer!

The 2017 Lancer ES Comes Out on Top
