Supercars | 2.0 Liter Showdown

I've been curious for quite some time about a line up of cars, this aren't Supercars but they are surely intrigued by a lot of people today because they are known to be the most affordable great performing light vehicles in the world, these cars consist of the Honda Civic 2.0S, Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 GT, Mazda 3 2.0 and the Ford Focus 2.0 TDCI, I just kept on wondering which car is better in speed, acceleration and all sorts of stuff about them of, actually they're all matchup almost equally but of course there some edges between them a slight margin that I want to know, well I've finally made my research and found some critical details, I know a lot of people are also interested in this matchup so check out the Head to Head Details below:

Aside from these cars I've got some details about Toyota Corolla, it cannot be in the competition because Corolla doesn't have a 2.0 liter engine, it only offers 2 types of engine one is the 1.8 liter which produces a 132 horsepower and 128 lb ft of torque equipped with a 4 speed automatic transmission that accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 10.1 seconds, and the other engine is a 2.4 liter engine that enables it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 8.8 seconds for automatic, and 8.1 seconds for manual transmission.
