Which Mirage G4 does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating2.5 / 5
The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is the sedan stablemate to the Mirage hatchback. And just as with the hatchback, the main reason to consider buying the G4 is its inexpensive price. When new, it's one of the cheapest cars you can buy.
If you're on a tight budget, the Mirage represents a viable new-car option as well as the warranty coverage and financing benefits that come with it. Just know that you're also getting one of the least appealing cars to drive right now. It's slow, uncomfortable and unrefined.
If your budget allows, we suggest going with more practical and desirable subcompact hatchbacks, such as the Kia Rio and Toyota Yaris iA. The Mirage might be inexpensive, but rival subcompact sedans still offer more car for the money.
Trim levels & features
The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a subcompact sedan offered in two trim levels: ES and SE. Both trims utilize the same engine: a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque. The ES gives you the choice between a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), while the SE is only available with the CVT.
Standard features for the base Mirage ES trim include 14-inch steel wheels, a rear spoiler, automatic headlights, air-conditioning, full power accessories, a tilt-only steering wheel, 60/40-split folding rear seats, a rearview camera, a 7-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player and a USB port.
Optional for the ES is the Smart Phone Display package. It adds 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a slightly smaller 6.5-inch touchscreen that has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
The Mirage SE includes all of the above, along with keyless ignition and entry, foglights, automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a height-adjustable driver seat and heated front seats.
Stand-alone options include various aerodynamic flourishes, added interior lighting, rear parking sensors, and utility items such as cargo nets and mud flaps.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our First Drive of the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage ES (1.2L inline-3 | CVT automatic | FWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Mitsubishi Mirage has received some revisions, including refreshed exterior bodywork, new interior materials, optional smartphone integration, revised suspension tuning and engine power. Our findings remain broadly applicable to the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4, however.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 for Sale
The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a subcompact sedan best suited for the city. The Mirage's claim to fame is its ultra-low price, but that comes at a cost. You'll be sacrificing power and refinement as part of the deal.
Like the Mirage hatchback, the Mirage G4 sedan has a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine (78 hp, 74 lb-ft of torque). Fuel economy is impressive, with the EPA estimating 37 mpg in combined driving. There are two trim levels: ES and SE.
The Mirage G4 ES may feature rather generic 14-inch steel wheels as standard, but it also comes with automatic headlights, power door locks, power windows, and power side mirrors, as well as a four-speaker sound system with a CD player and USB and auxiliary audio inputs to liven up what is the economy trim level. For 2018, it also comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera and Bluetooth.
If you've got a little more to spend, the Mirage G4 SE will get you foglights, heated front seats, keyless entry and push-button start, cruise control, a height-adjustable driver seat, automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a different touchscreen (6.5 inches in size) with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone app integration. The SE also comes with 15-inch alloy wheels and upgraded interior accents.
The above is a pleasing amount of features for the money. The rest of the Mirage G4, though, may leave you wanting more. Head out on a test drive and you can't help but notice the wheezy acceleration, bumpy ride and unsettled handling. Furthermore, the cabin environment isn't especially pleasant. There's a lot of engine noise no matter how fast you're going, and most of the interior materials are low in quality even for this fairly thrifty segment.
But should the Mirage's long warranty coverage, small size and high fuel economy be good enough, look no further than Edmunds to help you configure and find the perfect one for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
