2015 Mitsubishi Mirage review: Our expert's take

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.

4.1

Most reliable car ever.

Fantastic gas mileage, literally haven’t done anything but oil changes, front brake pads and a set of tires to this car since purchasing it new in 75k miles. I call it a little energizer bunny it just keeps going and going.. the iPod interface is great. I would definitely recommend a newer Mirage as it comes with so much even in its most basic trim level like cruise control back up camera and so much more ..you can go over 300 miles on $15 of gas ..tires are expensive though because they are an awkward size that no other car uses.

5.0

Awesome car

I just got this car and I love it. Cheap on gas and I get lots of compliments on it. 5 Speed and shifts smoothly . It is a 2015 and with a few thousand down the payments are really inexpensive. Get one with low kms - it will go a long time.
