2017 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback
After a yearlong hiatus, the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback has returned for 2017. You might think that taking a year off would have brought the Mirage back refreshed, energized and ready to compete with segment rivals. In this case, you'd be mistaken.
The introduction of the Mirage in 2014 gave Mitsubishi the second best-selling vehicle in their lineup, but sales were lackluster compared to their competitors in the subcompact segment. Mitsubishi decided to take a step back, and returned for 2017 with a host of new upgrades that it hoped would make the Mirage more competitive in its class. While the current upgrades have improved on the previous version of the Mirage, they still aren't enough to compete with their rivals.
A 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine powers the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback, producing 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque. The two lower trim levels (the ES and the SE) offer a five-speed manual transmission or a CVT, while the highest trim level (the GT) only comes with the CVT. Edmunds has yet to test the new 2017 Mirage, but the 4-hp increase from the 2015 version isn't expected to make a substantial difference in performance. Other mechanical upgrades include larger brakes, revised suspension tuning, and hill-start assist for the manual transmission version.
The four-door, five-passenger Mirage received updated exterior and interior features for 2017 as well. Exterior improvements include beefier front and rear bumpers, along with revamped headlights and taillights. Peek inside and you'll find a new steering wheel, along with easily accessible controls and multiple technology features including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. Though the interior has improved for 2017, the Mirage misses the mark with limited rear headroom and shoulder room, an unforgiving rear bench seat and unattractive, low-quality materials.
Once you get on the road in the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage, you may encounter additional less-than-endearing qualities. While it's easy to handle around town, highway driving requires much more attention and input. Acceleration is sluggish, and excessive engine compartment noise grows tiresome quickly.
Driving distractions aside, the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage has impressive fuel economy. The five-speed manual gets an EPA-estimated 36 mpg combined (33 city/41 highway), and the CVT gets an estimated 39 mpg combined (37 city/43 highway). The fuel economy of the CVT is certainly notable for a non-hybrid vehicle.
If you're looking for a fuel-efficient subcompact hatchback at an affordable price, the Mirage may end up on your short list. Let Edmunds help you find the right 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback for you.
