About Mitsubishi Mirage

Among the many subcompact cars one can buy, the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback and Mirage G4 sedan wouldn’t be our first picks. Why? Because while perks like a frugal 3-cylinder engine and the availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto impress, in just about every other category that matters the Mirage comes up short, especially when compared to such established competitors as the Ford Fiesta, Nissan Versa and Kia Rio. The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage’s styling is far from memorable, the interior materials hard and unwelcoming, the engine weak and the latest driver-safety assists nowhere to be found. On the plus side, the Mirage’s ride is comfortable, its CVT works better than most and it does have a large trunk.

"We recently retired, and are in South,TX on our RV lot for the winter. We sold our Honda back in September, thinking we no longer needed a second vehicle....after three months of driving a dually truck everywhere, and trying to park it...starting realizing we'd made a mistake. Well...we were driving home from running errands and saw this car sitting in front of the Mitsubishi dealer marked at $11,995...thought it couldn't be true, or it would be really stripped down. Boy, were we wrong...this is by far the best purchase we've made in a long time!! Didn't want to spend a lot, as it will be for driving around town. This fits the bill perfectly...we are already getting about 48 mpg on the highway, and easily 40 mpg combined! Could not be happier...and LOVE the warranty!!"

"The fact is not everyone needs bigger and better. When it comes to value and cost of ownership, it's very tough to beat the Mirage. We bought ours used for around $7K and it drives like a new car. The three cylinder engine is enough to keep us moving around town and local highways. For a budget car, it is very well equipped and very roomy. No it's not a race car but it is perfectly acceptable on curvy mountain roads. MPGs have very consistently been 48 mpg in combined driving with the CVT. Being able to do that without all of the excess technology, electronics and batteries of a hybrid is so awesome."

Pros: "great price, easy to drive, nice radio"

"My boyfriend and I have been looking for a car for me for quite some time. I had an old 02 Cav that was just ready to go. We heard something on the radio and looked into this car and not even 3 days later I had the keys. This is the second manual vehicle I have ever drove (first being a Ford Ranger) and the clutch and gear shifts are smooth and easy to learn. The car does have some issues with getting up and going (with the engine size it is expected) and like one of the other comments has said, not very good on a windy day. Other than the small little things the car is sleek and a great design. Small but roomy. We fit 4 people (including the driver) and a trunk full of groceries on the first day of having and it handled all the weight very well. I am very excited to have this car from now and going on! I do have the standard radio that is built into it and it does all what I need it to do with an AUX input. The car also heats up fast, which is a major plus for living in Ohio."
