About Mitsubishi Mirage

There were many changes Mitsubishi needed to make to improve the Mirage subcompact, and nowhere on the list was a trunk. But that's exactly what the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is: a 4-door sedan version of the much-maligned hatchback Mitsubishi brought to the U.S. market a couple years ago. Along with the trunked version, Mitsubishi added a new audio system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There's refreshed exterior and interior styling, and the engine is smoother at idle. Still, the list of shortcomings remains long, and while the Mirage offers good fuel economy and a decent ride, none of it makes up for its underlying crudity, especially considering that the little Mitsu sedan's price and features pit it against the much nicer Nissan Versa.

"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."

Pros: "mileage, fun, it is a big little car."

Cons: "plan on replacing wheels/tires"

"We were looking for a first car for our 17-year old daughter. Saw a 2014 Mirage w/40K miles on a local dealers website. The price was in our ball park so we went to look but were skeptical. First, Im 6 3, 225lbs and when we went for the test drive I thought there was no way Id fit comfortably in any seat. Well I was wrong. Drivers seat, passenger seat and rear seats were no problem. Second, we were concerned by the pros reviews so during the test drive (4 of us in car) I pushed the car hard - it performed - we were totally impressed. Third, not flashy, no bells or whistles but with power windows, a/c, decent radio/speaker combo, look of dash, enough space in back, etc... all just right. Last, no idea how but they even fit a spare tire. Yup, we bought the car, she absolutely loves it and so do we."

Pros: "Great Price... I like driving the car"

Cons: "No arm rest, metal on the roof is very thin."

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

"I love my little Mirage, great MPG! Yes it rides a little rough, more road noise than a larger car, but its not a 30,000.00 car. Its a great value that drives and rides well for a small car. The only con I have found is the roof is made of very thin metal, will dent/ding easily."
