2014 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 4dr Hatchback (1.2L 3cyl 5M)


I love this car!
It gives me everything I need: a roof, an engine, and wheels.
You will be hard pressed to find a less expensive new car, and even harder pressed to find one with this kind of gas mileage.
I, too came from a Nissan Versa, and while that was cheaper, it didn't get anywhere near this mileage.
I'm able to get it up to 56 mpg if I drive it right, and that's on the hilly back roads of NH.
If you want to punch it
, you can still average around 30ish.
The interior is larger than the Spark and Fiesta, power windows and locks are
standard, and it's been a pleasure to own so far.
For the economically minded, this car can't be beat.

Best Features

Worst Features

I'd like it to handle a little better around turns You'll find the steering is really loose when you first drive it, but hardly notice after a thousand miles or so.

The loose steering does take getting used to. On my way home with the car brand-new from the dealership I nearly got into an accident on a twisty country road because I was so accustomed to the ultra-sensitive steering on my Nissan Versa that when entering a sweeping bend in the road i turned a little and the car kept going straight, causing me to enter the opposite lane of traffic. Scary!
