Mitsubishi just released a variation of its Mirage hatch, creating a compact sedan that has a whole lot of appeal to buyers looking for an affordable vehicle that’s also fuel efficient. It’s a solid competitor to more expensive hybrid vehicles, and offers respectable performance for it’s incredibly low price tag.
Excellent Fuel Efficient
One of the best things about the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage are its fuel economy figures. It’s actually the most fuel efficient non-hybrid vehicle sold in the United States today. It gets an estimated 39 MPG combined in its most efficient model.
Real World Testing
Reviewers that have put the Mirage through its paces have been happy with the performance and fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Drivers aren’t having any trouble getting mid 30’s or low 40’s while taking the Mirage out for a spin, with highway driving of course being the more efficient option of the bunch.
For such a compact vehicle, the Mirage has enough space to seat four adults comfortably. It’s quite wide within and offers good rear storage as well in its trunk or hatch, depending on the model that you decide on.
Good Stop and Go Acceleration
Many smaller and economical vehicles like the Mirage struggle to accelerate at the low end of the gauge. That’s not the case with the Mirage. It speeds up nicely from 0 to 20 MPH, but you will begin to notice power lag a bit after you pass the 20 mile per hour marker.
Good Value Car
If you’re looking for a car packed with features, or that feels luxurious within, the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is not for you. If you’re looking for a good value, this is the type of car that you should be considering. It’s very affordable and is a decent option for buyers that want excellent fuel efficiency without the high price tags of a hybrid car. It’s possible to get the vehicle brand-new at less than $15,000 which is a price point that’s almost unheard of in most modern-day sedans.
If you don’t mind going without some features that you would get in other sedans, the Mirage G4 is a good solid option with excellent fuel efficiency and a low price tag.
