2022 Mitsubishi Mirage review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 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 and a G4 sedan. It’s powered by a 78-horsepower, 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that works with a five-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission. The subcompact Mirage hatch and sedan compete with cars like the Chevrolet Spark, Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio.

What’s New on the 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage?

A new Black Edition features black 15-inch alloy wheels, a black spoiler and mirror caps, red grille accents, and red and black interior trim. Black Edition and SE models also get automatic headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

What Features in the 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • LED taillights
  • 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Cruise control
  • Automatic air conditioning
  • Automatic emergency braking

Available features include:

  • LED headlights
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Heated front seats
  • Push-button start
  • Lane departure warning

Should I Buy the 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage?

The Mirage is inexpensive and has an impressive 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, but it’s also noisy and underpowered. It does have fun handling, however, and its small size makes it easy to park in crowded city centers.

I owned a 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback Rockford Fosgate edition that got 40+ mpg in the city and up to 50+ mpg on the interstate. That car was totalled in a wreck 2 weeks ago, I was hit from behind by a large pickup truck. I am now driving a 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage ES Hatchback and it is just as good. I give it a 👍 👍 👍 👍 👍

In 2016 we bought our first brand new Mitsubishi Mirage. Our daughter was helping us move and was driving our new car, when suddenly she was hit on the passenger side by a drunk driver. The safety features of the Mitsubishi Mirage thankfully saved her. With the insurance money and the Gap Insurance, needless to say we bought another brand new Mitsubishi Mirage! Then our daughter, her husband moved to Missouri! They were planning to come for Christmas and the 4 seater Mirage wouldn’t work, so we bought a 7 seater Mitsubishi Outlander. Since they didn’t come and do to finances wouldn’t be able to come we decided to down grade to a new 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. While driving on the highway I hit something (even though I didn’t see it) that flattened three tires and one of the rims. The way the the SUV is made, I had no trouble pulling over to the side of the road. In fact I thought I only had one flat tire until we were towed to a tire shop and that’s when we found out how bad it was. They figured because it had rained the night before, that the water covered a pothole and that’s what I hit! They said we were lucky to be alive and nothing else was wrong with the car! Well being that my husband is sight impaired and I now have arthritis in my right hip and left knee. Getting in the SUV even with a step was a challenge! So after 4 years we traded it in for a brand new 2022 Mirage LE! These aren’t fancy inside but they have good features. Even the 2022 with its small 3 cylinder engine, has very good pickup and does very well going up hills, without to much trouble.,All Mitsubishi vehicles get great gas mileage and a wonderful warranty! I’ve never understood the bad reviews because we’ve been very happy with the vehicles we’ve had!
