2017 Mitsubishi Mirage GT

Are you looking for a very inexpensive, subcompact car that gets 37/43 MPG? Then the Mitsubishi Mirage might be the perfect car for you.

The Mitsubishi Mirage is a 5 seater, subcompact car that is perfect for a commute car or a college student. It features a lot of trunk space and is fairly roomy for a few people. I truly don't think it would fit 5 comfortably and would only fit 4 comfortably if the shortest people were in front as there's not a lot of rear legroom. 

Steering Wheel mounted controls make everything easier.

 The control center was pretty basic, but was expected of such an entry level car. No sirius xm radio, just standard am/fm, a simple gear shifter, etc.
Rear backup camera is now standard on all new vehicles, so I was happy to find it in this Mirage as well.
Limited rear legroom, again good for a commute car/college student or maybe a person with 1 small child.
 The trunk room severely surprised me. Lots and lots of room in this little hatchback, the trunk is very deep and with the seats folded down there's even more room.

Overall this little car wasn't really for me. It didn't fit my needs and was too basic for me personally. However it was a good little car. It drove pretty nice and smooth and had great features like heated seats and the backup camera as well as push start.

-7 airbags fill this little Mirage
-It has enhanced visibility with standard LED taillights and Halogen headlights
-Mitsubishi's Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body utilizes crumple zones that route and absorb energy during high-impact collisions.
-Mitsubishi also offers their 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty.3 We also include a 5-year/60,000-mile fully transferable New Vehicle Basic Limited Warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty on the restraint system, a 7-year/100,000-mile Anti-Corrosion/Perforation Limited Warranty and 5-years/unlimited miles Roadside Assistance.

Overall a good little car. With a base price of $12,995 for an SE and $16,495 for a GT this car is definitely affordable!! The one I reviewed here is $17,330.
