2014 - Present Mitsubishi Mirage Trim Configurations
Technically, the Mitsubishi Mirage is in its sixth generation of production—as it first debuted as Mitsubishi's three-door hatchback sedan back in 1978. Production of the Mirage was sporadic, however, with its fifth generation of production ending in 2003. The sixth generation of the Mitsubishi Mirage was first made available in North America for the 2014 model year—and not surprisingly, there were some significant changes and redesigns when compared to the previous generation that had last been sold in 2003.
For the 2014 model year, for instance, some standard features include automatic climate control and keyless entry. And in terms of Mitsubishi Mirage gas mileage, its 1.2-liter, three-cylinder engine with automatic transmission gets an estimated 39 mpg combined.1 For the Mitsubishi Mirage 2015, Mitsubishi did some refining by shortening the vehicle's radio antenna and adding some chrome features to the exterior. The ES trim saw some upgraded features, such as new upholstery and turn-signal repeaters on its side-view mirrors.
The Mitsubishi Mirage took a brief hiatus for the 2016 model year, but production picked back up for the Mitsubishi Mirage 2017. For this model year, there were notable changes that included redesigned headlights and taillights, a redesigned bumper, and different interior styling. From an engine standpoint, the horsepower on its 1.2-liter engine was ramped up slightly to 78 horsepower (compared to 74 horsepower previously). The 2017 model also offered new trim levels.
The Mitsubishi Mirage 2018 didn't see any significant changes or redesigns, though it does get some new standard features that include Bluetooth® connectivity, a seven-inch touchscreen, and a rearview camera. In terms of Mitsubishi Mirage mpg, fuel economy has remained pretty consistent over its several years of sixth-generation production; the 2018 Mirage with 1.2-liter base engine also gets an estimated 39 mpg combined—the same as its 2014 version.1

Reviews for Mitsubishi Mirage
Great economical car!
If you want to get from point A to point B as economically as possible, there's no reason not to get this car. Low price, best gas mileage of any non-hybrid car. Only drawback is keeping up interstate speeds without the cruise. But just set it and forget it. Not really that loud like some reviews claim and acceleration is good enough. Surprisingly roomy for its size, and has more carrying room in the hatch compared to competitors.
- Fuel Economy: I'm getting over 42 miles/gallon.
- Visibility: Easy to see all around the vehicle.
- Value: In-expensive
- Power: Hey, it has a 3 cylinder. What do you expect?
For the price, it's hard to beat
This car gets incredible gas mileage, but it comes at the price of power. You definitely aren't going to be impressing anyone when you put your foot down, but at 45 mpg it's hard to beat. Additionally, it's very no frills, when you kick up a rock and it hits the undercarriage it sounds like the whole thing might come apart. But again, for the price you won't find anything better to get you from a to b and back again.
- Value: This car is the cheapest you'll find, and gets great gas mileage.
- Fuel Economy: It has the best fuel economy of any gas engine on the market.
- Cargo Space: It comes with a surprisingly large trunk for its size.
- Cabin Noise: This is noisier than a large truck in cabin.
- Power: There is no power to speak of.
- Ride and Handling: This car, surprisingly for its size, handles more like a tank. It corners tightly, but it feels like you're turning the wheel all day to get there. Sharper maneuvering is at your own risk, it always feels as if it's about to flip over due to its light weight. I've would definitely suggest weighing it down if you have to drive in snow.
Really wish I could’ve got something else.
The only two things I like about the car is a little bigger space in the car and a louder speaker in the car. The car jumps every morning when it’s cold or if I’m at a complete stop. The car literally shakes. It does not auto lock. I cannot fix any settings for the car. Wish I could get another car or trade this in for a better quality car.
