The Mitsubishi Mirage is an oddity in the automotive world – a vehicle without aspiration upwards. It is a 4-door, 5-passenger hatchback small, apart from the selection of bright exterior colors.
Interior Mitsubishi Mirage is really simple, which can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, the dash layout is very simple a fur trapper 18th century could determine the heating and audio controls. On the other hand, the hard brutal arm chairs, drawer open with shin-hitting “dunk”, and cargo cover is connected to the rear hatch with only one strap lonely. Although the touch-saving, front occupants enjoy a decent room and good contoured seat. At the rear, headroom is tight, but there is enough room for two adults, maybe even three if things become desperate.
With a rounded silhouette of a jellybean, Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback is not what we call “cool”, even though $ 695 exterior body kit and paint a thick palette options, including Kiwi Green and Plasma Purple, do not add a little style. If the shape is determined by pragmatism Mirage. Small 14-inch wheels reduces rotational mass and inexpensive to produce while the body itself is targeted to benefit from the use of high strength steel. Their efforts along with the small size results in a hairy car, curb weight is less fuel efficient than 2,000 pounds in a mild form.
Given its small size, safety is an obvious concern and one of the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage respond with standard stability and traction control and seven airbags, including driver’s knee airbag. Along with safety features, 14-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, power windows, mirrors and door locks, auxiliary inputs, audio system with USB, and automatic climate control all come standard on the base DE trim.
Buyers who splurge for the $ 1,200-pricier SE trim will enjoy steering wheel audio and cruise controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, aluminum-alloy wheels 14-inch, and keyless access with the engine-start button, oddly located in to the left of the steering column.
The front-wheel-drive Mitsubishi Mirage is powered by a 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine small positive. Standard transmission is a 5-speed manual featuring a long throw and maybe a light clutch pedal we have ever experienced, but for maximum fuel economy you have to spend another $ 1000 for a wide-ratio continuously variable transmission, or CVT for short. Acceleration is sluggish and the accompanying sound is an attack on the senses. The silver lining to all the slow, hard movement is found in the number of fuel economy Mirage, which rival the efficiency of many hybrids.

For only $ 13.790 you can buy the Mitsubishi Mirage DE base trim with manual transmission. Choosing a high ES trim with $ 1,200-a continuously variable transmission and navigation system $ 900, and you can expect to pay $ 16,890. At that price, the Mirage is cheap compared to almost any other vehicle you can think of. The Chevy Spark command prices similar to the Mirage, while cars like the Scion iQ, Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent, Toyota Yaris and the Smart Fortwo is even, to varying degrees, more expensive.
