I will reply your querry as per my preference rest upto you,
1,Lancer Auto:The budget you are having enables you to even opt for 1.6 with sunroof,now it all depends that how much prestine condition car you can find,Lancer is really good at performance,comforts,luxury.Only negative aspect(although I don't give it importance) is poor resale reason being expensive body parts,routine maintainance is likely same.On the top its not locally assembled.
2,Civic 7th generation should be considered at 2nd place good at performance,economical parts good resale.
3,Corolla Auto is only available in SE Saloon not good at performance(prior regrets to owners) not at all comfortable only in comparision with above ones but very easy and economical availability of spares,sells like hot cake if all three are standing.
Decide yourself and best of luck.
