2020 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

Just to be clear, I am not an employee of Mitsubishi motors or affiliated with them in anyway. I sincerely believe that the Mirage is probably the most "true" car out there. It doesn't pretend to be a... Read full review

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.
