2020 Mitsubishi Mirage review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage?

One of the most affordable and fuel-efficient non-hybrids 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 Chevrolet Spark, Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio.

What’s New on the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage?

Automatic climate control is now standard. A new Limited Edition sedan features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, 15-inch alloy wheels in a black finish and red interior accents.

What Features in the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage Are Most Important?

In short, value and fuel economy. The Mirage appeals to the budget-conscious shopper, but higher trims come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the car offers decent headroom and comes with a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.

Should I Buy the 2020 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 while the G4 sedan is rated 37 mpg. With low cost of ownership and a starting price around $15,000, the Mirage is a budget buy.

Fun and easy to handle

Gas mileage 50 mpg. So easy to drive especially at night. Bright lights could be brighter though. Excellent speakers. Hard to see screen when sun is shining on it. But perfect at night.

For an economical commuter, it doesn't get better!

I needed a reliable, economical car for my long work commute, and did not want to buy used and take my chance on having things break down. The Mirage has one of the best warranties in the industry, so that attracted me. The super affordable price also helps - I paid 14,000 for the 2020 LE Hatchback, brand new. When I first test drove it I was slightly disappointed in the noise - but I have completely gotten used to it now that I have owned my vehicle for about 6 months. It is fun to drive, has handled perfectly on wet, slick roads (snow and ice both) and the driver's seat is comfortable, and heated, too! Back seat area is a bit cramped - would not recommend taking adult passengers for an overly long trip! But I have NOT found it to be that sluggish - I can pass on the highway easily when needed and enjoy my drive each day. Great visibility when driving, at least in the hatchback. I am SO glad I bought mine and have no plans to get rid of it for years to come!

3.1

Very reliable

The take off is very rough . Doesn’t do good on interstate with wind. Wouldn’t reccommend for long distances. It is very good on gas
