2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

All-new last year, the 2015 Mirage gets only minor changes. Aesthetics are improved with the addition of a short antenna mounted on the rear of the vehicle, and ES models get turn signals in the side mirrors. Inside, there's now added chrome trim, and ES models get better seat fabric.

About Mitsubishi Mirage

The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is noteworthy not just because of its tiny size, or its low price, or its excellent fuel economy. No, the Thailand-assembled Mirage is a genuine third-world car that wasn't originally considered for the U.S. market. However, stricter fuel economy standards have brought the little 4-door, 5-passenger hatchback to our shores. The Mirage's low price and good fuel economy fulfill its promises of being inexpensive to own and operate, and it's surprisingly well equipped, with standard features like automatic climate control. But make no mistake, making it in America is harder than ever, and even at this price point there are cars offering a more refinement. The Chevy Spark, for example, is no Cadillac, but it's still a marked improvement over the little Mitsu.

"I think most people who are attracted to cars like the Mirage are people who have an eye for reliability and practicality. The Mirage has plenty of both! No creaks or squeaks, and it feels very solidly built and very stable, even on highways - it has to be, to endure the rougher roads of less-than-first world countries. It has a softer ride than most cars, but I for one love this feature ... it glides like a luxury car over potholes without complaining. I also appreciate the conservative lines of the exterior; it'll probably age much better than it's competitors' more trendy styles. No, it's not designed to run or compete in races, but it has plenty of pep to get you where you need to go with more than enough power. The 3-cylinder engine possesses a mini version of a 6-cylinder's rumble, so I actually love the engine sound. The Mirage has more "measure of fun" and is "more interesting" than the Spark!"

Pros: "Great Price, FUEL ECONOMY! Perfect Power features!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Yes, the car is an Econobox. We knew this. We are not looking for fancy interior, Ultra smooth ride, or a silent engine. We needed Fuel economy ! And we are getting it ! On a recent road trip , we were able to achieve 48.6 mpg !! I had owned Geo Metros in the past, liked them. Liked the economy. But, This Car We LOVE ! For the Price, and how the car is equipped.. and the Standard power features, you simply Cannot Beat It ! And, I forgot to mention Warranty ! Awesome ! Considering purchasing another , since this car moves very well in the snow and do not need AWD in my other vehicle anylonger."

Pros: "Fuel Economy-Overall Value-Mitsubishi Reliability."

Cons: "Steering too stiff over 40 mph."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Best value, drives better than Fiesta, goes better than Spark. Exceeded window sticker MPG on first tank. Powerful Heat and A/C. Very solid. Ignore the new car reviewer--it doesn't make awful sounds. It sounds like a small powerful tractor. It turned out to be more car than I was expecting, and it did well in the NCAP crash tests. The only thing I don't like is electric power steering becomes too stiff at speeds over forty."
