2019 Mitsubishi Mirage review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage?

One of the most affordable and fuel-efficient cars on the market, the subcompact Mirage is available as a four-door hatchback or G4 sedan. It comes with a 78-horsepower, 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that works with a five-speed manual or an available continuously variable automatic transmission. The subcompact hatch and sedan compete with cars like the Nissan Versa, Nissan Versa Note, Fiat 500 and Kia Rio.

What’s New on the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage?

New standard features include cruise control, a driver’s seat height adjuster and silver seat stitching. A new Limited Edition hatchback trim features 15-inch alloy wheels in a black finish, heated front seats and red interior accents.

What Features in the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Are Most Important?

In short, value and fuel economy. Offered as both a roomy hatchback and subcompact sedan, the Mirage appeals to the budget-conscious shopper. Higher trims come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, and the car offers decent headroom and comes with a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.

Should I Buy the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage?

The Mirage is noisy and underpowered, but it has some quirky charms and fun handling. Standard features include a 7-inch touchscreen stereo and Bluetooth streaming audio. The hatch with the CVT is rated 39 mpg combined, and the G4 sedan is rated 37 mpg. With low cost of ownership and a starting price under $15,000, the Mirage is a budget buy.

Great car!

For my first car, it’s great and I love it. I’ve always wanted a car that wasn’t giant and making me uncomfortable. It’s extremely comfortable and the trunk space is amazing.

Not happy

I feel the my car is in the shop alot. Winter time will not start right from day 1, They need to look in to their oil pump 2 times changed now. First time was first couple months, in there now again. Thank goodness for road side used a lot now. Changed battery a couple times but it was not the battery it’s the alternator. Not happy with my car. I will be calling to see if there is a recall on this pump.

2019 Mirage ES

The Mirage is very good at fulfilling its mission-inexpensive to buy, fuel and maintain. I have 60k miles on a 2019 Mirage and I haven’t had any problems. Great car to buy if you understand the Mirage’s role. I love my Mirage!
