2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 review: Our expert's take

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.

Value for the money !!! you wont regret

Overall great experience, very low maintenance, efficient, reliable, and huge gas savings... cost-effective, do the job ...Absolutely faced no problems driving this vehicle in winter or summer.


Worst car I've ever owned

Never buy a car with a CVT transmission. They are junk and the manufacturer won't honor the warranty. The car is cheaply made and unconformable to drive.


No Regrets with This Car

My last car was an older SUV, which unfortunately died a few months back. I recently purchased a used 2017 Mirage G4 for about $8,000 and 40,000 miles. Its been almost 6 months with the Mirage and I am still really satisfied with this car! There are only 4 speakers in the car, but they sound really great and have a surprising amount of bass, and I regularly (almost daily) get 50+mpg on my way to work. I live in the city and even with heavy city driving I never get less than 35mpg. It's a really comfortable ride and it handles bumps pretty well! For the price the car is definitely worth the money. You can get a brand new Mirage G4 with all the bells and whistles for less than $20,000.
