A full list of available features and filters for the new 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage inventory include but are not limited to: Edmunds Special Offers: Purchase Offers, Lease Offers, Gas Card, Used Offers. Model Type: Hatchback, Sedan, Coupe.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car meant for the city. It features four doors, a hatchback design and seating for five. The Mirage's claim to fame is its ultra-low price, but you'll be sacrificing power and refinement in the process.
The Mirage is available in three trims, ES, SE and GT. They all share the same 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine (78 hp and 74 lb-ft of torque) and body, but they feature increasing degrees of convenience and style equipment. The Mirage ES has 14-inch wheels plus automatic headlights, LED taillights, 60/40-split folding rear seats, a 7-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player and a USB input.
If you've got a little more to spend, the Mirage SE also comes with foglights, keyless entry and push-button start, cruise control, a height-adjustable driver seat, automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and upgraded interior accents. Finally, the top trim Mirage GT gets larger 15-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights and heated front seats.
The above is a pleasing amount of features for the money. The rest of the Mirage, 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.
