Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

One of the most affordable cars on sale today gets an extensive update for the 2017 model year. The update adds new styling inside and out, powertrain improvements and more technology features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

ExteriorThe Mirage's new exterior design is an overhaul, front to back, with updates to the hood, grille, front and rear bumpers, fog and headlights, rear spoiler and the wheels. Replacing the old slitlike front grille is a larger opening, with available chrome accents adding some needed spice to what used to be a rather mundane front end.

Fog lights are now surrounded by black plastic, which blends into the lower air intake and gives the Mirage a wider, more stylish appearance. New LED daytime running light accents are now available as well. Mitsubishi claims that the changes also make the Mirage lighter, which should help fuel economy.

Inside, the 2017 Mirage also gets an update with new seat fabrics, a new steering wheel and a restyled instrument panel. Technology options now include a 300-watt Rockford-Fosgate audio system that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This is the first time those systems will be offered by Mitsubishi in the U.S.

Under the HoodReturning is the same 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine, but it does get mechanical upgrades (including a new camshaft) that bumps horsepower to 78, 4 more hp than last year. Transmission options include a five-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. Mitsubishi says updates to the steering along with added stiffness to the front suspension should provide better handling and stability. Larger brake discs up front and larger drums in the rear should also improve the Mirage's braking.

SafetySeven airbags are standard (including dual front, side-impact, side curtain and driver's knee) along with the federally mandated antilock brakes and an electronic stability control system. CVT-equipped models also come with hill start assist to prevent rollback on inclines.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
