What Is the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage?
The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is a front-wheel-drive four-door hatchback with seating for five. It comes in three trim levels: DE, ES and RF. It competes against models such as the Chevrolet Spark, Smart ForTwo, Toyota Yaris, Ford Fiesta and Scion iQ.
What's New on the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage?
The 2015 Mirage receives a few small updates for the new model year. It now features a rear-mounted short-pole antenna as well as chrome accent trim around the audio system and climate control panels. Those who opt for the ES trim will have upgraded seat fabric plus side mirrors with turn signal indicators.
How Does the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Compare to Other Hatchbacks?
The ES model is well-equipped with sophisticated features such as push-button start, Bluetooth connectivity and keyless entry. There are also a variety of optional amenities that are not often available on vehicles at this price like parking sensors and navigation. Although this vehicle is affordable and achieves its goal of getting passengers from point A to point B, there are better options on the market like the more spacious Nissan Versa Note.
What Features in the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Are Most Important?
The Mitsubishi Mirage is powered by a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that generates 74 horsepower. It is paired with a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission.
Significant standard features include body-colored side mirrors, a four-speaker stereo, power windows, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks and automatic headlights. Notable options include 14-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.
As required on all new vehicles for this model year, the Mirage is outfitted with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. It has five additional standard airbags.
Should I Buy the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage?
Although it provides good value for the money as well as impressive available features and fuel economy figures, it is lacking in several other important areas like performance, styling, space and cabin quality.
