Mitsubishi Mirage (Aut)

Compact 5 Passengers 2 Luggages Air Music
Updated at 16 May 2019

New for 2018

Mitsubishi adds more standard feature to the Mirage lineup including a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth phone/audio streaming, a rearview camera, and steering wheels audio and Bluetooth controls. The USB port has been relocated to the center console and the G4 sedan model now has a standard truck pass through. The Mirage received a mid-cycle refresh for the 2017 model year.

Overview

The subcompact Mirage hatchback and Mirage G4 sedan are powered by a 1.2-liter I-3 engine that produces 78 hp and 74 lb-ft of torque that delivers an EPA-rated 33/41 mpg city/highway with the five-speed manual transmission (33/40 mpg for the G4) and 37/43 with the CVT (35/41 mpg for the G4). In Motor Trend testing, the pre-refresh 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage (with a 74-hp version of the same engine) hit 60 mph in a slow 12 seconds and stopped from 60 mph in a decent 127 feet.

The base Mirage ES model comes equipped with the previously mentioned 7.0-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth phone/audio streaming, a rearview camera, and steering wheels audio and Bluetooth controls. The ES also includes a rear spoiler, an Eco indicator light (on CVT models), and a USB port. The range-topping GT model comes equipped with 15-inch two-tone alloy wheels, HID headlights, heated front seats, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Other available features include a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system, an LED interior illumination package, and a Quick Value package that adds front and rear mudguards, scuff plates, black leather shift knob, cargo mat, cargo net, and an exhaust finisher.

Safety

The NHTSA gave the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage a four-star rating for the hatchback’s overall score (the G4 has yet to be tested by the NHTSA). In IIHS testing, the Mirage received the highest score of Good in all but one evaluation, scoring the second-lowest rating of Marginal in the small overlap front test. The G4 sedan model received the same ratings with the exception of the side crash test, scoring the second-highest rating of Acceptable. The Mitsubishi Mirage was not tested for front crash prevention because the Mirage does not offer any active driver assist safety features. The Mirage comes standard with seven airbags, stability control, and is available with front and rear parking sensors.

What We Think

In a First Test review of the pre-refresh 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage, we did not like much about the car. The hatchback has lousy handling, a bumpy ride, very slow acceleration, has a lot of interior noise and vibration, and interior quality is very cheap as well. The best part of the car if the very low starting price and the good fuel economy, “Is that fuel economy, plus the Mirage’s slight pricing advantage, enough to justify the car over its better-driving competition? Not for me, but I can see how some cash-strapped car shoppers without any enthusiast leanings might see otherwise. Whether it beats rolling in an older, used vehicle is debatable, but the 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty makes it an attractive used car alternative.”
