I own 2 mirages
CEM, 2/11/2017
I have a 2015 mirage hatchback that i use for Uber. The car gets a lot of hard use driving for Uber between lots of miles, bad roads, and interior wear and tear with people. I was soimpressed with it that i bought the G4 SE with all the options. Reviewers dont get these cars and why people buy them. Is it fast? No, Its great on gas! Does it handle great, No, It has a great balance of ride and handling. Is it Tech heavy, No, but anyone can drive it and figuare out how everything works. Is the interior cheap? not anymore than cars that cost a lot more and the seats are comfortable and lots of room for real adults. Reviewer said buy a used car that is better, Why would i buy a used car that the warrenty will be up soon when the G4 has 5/60 bumper to bumper and 10 year powertrain. And the Mirage has a better reliability and does better in crash test than most of other cars in this class. Since i wrote this review a car ran a intersection and totalled my hatchback that i used for Uber. I was so impressed with how it held up with such a hard hit , i was fine afterwards other than being a little sore. Although I was happy with the hatchback I decided to buy the base G4 with the 5 speed manual to have a little bigger car for Uber passangers. I bought it from the same dealer i bought the G4 SE. So now I have the base car and a loaded SE. I paid 10,330.00 plus tax,tag,title for the base car and although i was surprised it didnt come standered with Bluetooth ( really mitsubish ? Bluetooth sould be standard on all cars ) It comes with keyless,PW, PL, CD player, remote trunk and gas door, auto headlights, that i would gladly give up for Bluetooth. All the bad reviews by the car magazines and reviewers just confirms to me that these people are crazy. What can you buy NEW with a 10 year warranty for that kind of money? Consumer Reports says its the worst car ever tested ? Really ? Well according to Consumer Reports the car rates better in crash tests has a better reliability ratings than other cars in its class and gets better fuel economy and has a better warranty. Im happy I didnt listen to the reviewers Go look at one and drive it and see for yourself the value in this car if looking for a good transportation car thats not used.
Best bang for your buck!!

I am never one to listen to Consumer Reports. They have no clue! This car is amazing! I'm getting 38.2 MPG with mixed driving on the crowded South Florida roads. I am 6'2 and this car is quite roomy. Plenty of room in the backseat as well. Great technology like backup camera, bluetooth, automatic climate control. Very comfy seats. Wonderful warranty. Looks nice in the wine red color I selected. Decent sized trunk as well. I am so happy with my purchase. Feels much bigger than it is. And yes, perhaps the 1.2L, 78 hp, 3 cyl. is a tiny engine but the miles per gallon and amazing turning radius more than makes up for it. Great job Mitsubishi!
Love my 2017 Mirage G4 SE

I just purchased a 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE CVT in Wine Red and love it. I traded my 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage ES CVT with Navigation and the updates are extensive. The interior on the 2017s has so many upgrades such as seat fabric material, interior piano trim, seat support, sound insulation, new gauge cluster, new steering wheel, new audio unit with apple car play and android auto, 4 more horsepower and a new roller cam shaft, new suspension updates, smoother idle, fender insulation, heated seats, auto dimming rear view mirror, wide angle rear view camera (G4), rear fold down arm rest with cup holders and even the way the shifter feels going into gear is much smoother. The updates are amazing in making this car feel more substantial. I got the Light Gray interior which adds a level of class to the interior and will be adding the Mitsubishi Center Console Armrest for $138.95 (my 2015 had it installed). The room inside the G4 is unreal, its huge and the trunk is cavernous!!! I also love the dark chrome alloy wheels and matching front grill. This paint color (Wine Red) is so unique and classy looking. I had no issues with my 2015 and only traded for the upgrades and the deal I got on this 2017 Top Trim G4 SE. It was $18,115.00 and I got it for $12,714.00 at Renn Kirby Mitsubishi in Frederick MD you should really check out their deals! If you do be sure to see Tommy Moberly he sold us our 2016 Outlander Sport GT and our 2017 Mirage G4 SE and was amazing. While driving in town the ride is much more quiet and takes bumps with less of a thud and the idle is 50% smoother and quieter. The seats feel extra stuffed and the material is for sure much more premium feeling. The Apple Car Play alone is one of my favorite features and props to Mitsubishi for incorporating that!!! Mitsubishis are very reliable and they have been making 3 cylinder engines forever and they will last a very long time with cheap maintenance. Keep up the good work Mitsubishi because I am impressed with the updated 2017 model Mirage and Mirage G4!!!
Love the Minibug!

I bought a 2017 Mirage G4 400 miles ago and am completely satisfied. The milage is unreal... coming from a Nissan truck... I filled up after 300 miles with $19.75 of gas.. and ran it all the way down to see what would happen.. the gas gauge (whole thing) flashes in its final gasps. I didn't run out of gas though.. and think I had a gallon left. Road noise a little loud.. drives like a very small car but still.. for my new commuter it's GREAT! Again, coming from a truck, it handles very nicely.. agile.. and I love the reliable BT connection and it DOES play my podcasts on Audio Blu-Ray disk format (or through phone). It remembers where I left off! Other cars do NOT. I average 38mpg. 38mpg x 9 gallons = 342 miles. More than my 21 gallon truck that's for sure! Roomy and spacious.. like the Tardis.. it just looks so SMALL from the outside. Trunk huge too. Super happy. Time will tell on reliability but I have a lifetime powertrain warranty. Bought it at 8000 miles.

More about the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4

After taking a break for the 2016 model year, the Mitsubishi Mirage has returned to the marketplace — and this time it's brought a friend. Meet the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, a four-door sedan version of what could be the most maligned car on the market today.

With its sharply raked hood and stubby trunk, the Mirage G4 follows the example of its low-cost sedan rivals by emphasizing form over function. Even so, backseat space is limited for average-size adults, and the low, flat bench seat offers little support. Up front, headroom is good but the lack of a telescoping steering column will make it tough for some to find a comfortable driving position, as will the hard armrests on the doors and the absence of an armrest in the center. Decor belies the Mirage's price. We don't expect to be dazzled by a car this inexpensive, and yet the Mirage still manages to disappoint us with materials quality that is not as good as the competition.

That said, there are a surprising number of luxury features on offer. Automatic climate control, heated front seats, keyless ignition and entry, and a stereo compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay all appear on the Mirage G4's options list, and at very cheap prices. Also worthy of note is the epic warranty: five years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage. Most of the Mirage's rivals offer three-year/36,000-mile warranties. The extra coverage should give peace of mind to budget buyers who are purchasing on a five-year finance agreement.

Still, the Mirage G4 is a difficult car to fall in love with, in large part because of the way it drives. Power — and we use that term loosely — comes from a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine delivering 78 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque, which drives the front wheels through either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Thrust is in short supply. While we haven't track-tested the sedan, we've clocked the CVT-equipped hatchback to 60 mph in a sluggish 11.7 seconds.

But fuel economy is impressive with the G4 EPA-rated at 35 mpg combined (33 city/40 highway) with a manual transmission and 37 mpg combined (35 city/42 highway) with a CVT, impressive numbers for a non-hybrid car. The Mirage is OK to drive around town, where its small size makes it easy to maneuver. But at high speeds it's less pleasant. The Mirage feels fidgety and nervous, with a harsh ride, imprecise handling and an excessively noisy engine.

Mitsubishi offers the Mirage G4 in ES and SE trims. The ES is well equipped for a budget-priced car, and the SE adds features we don't normally expect to find at the low end of the market. Edmunds can help find the perfect 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 for you.
