MPG

36 City / 42 Highway

If a fuel-sipping subcompact is important, the latest Mirage is the leader in the clubhouse. Starting at $14,260 (which includes a $865 destination charge), the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is available in three trims, is powered by a frugal three-cylinder engine, and returns the highest EPA-estimated miles per gallon for a non-hybrid powered vehicle in North America. The lack of driver-assisted safety features, an uncomfortable interior, arguably the worst driving character of any new car on the market, and less than stellar exterior creativity suggests this vehicle is best suited for those that consider superior fuel economy at a budget price their number one criteria.

What's New for 2018

The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage includes a few trim-specific upgrades for the new year. The Mirage ES is now available with a new seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that features Bluetooth, while the SE gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, and a rear-view camera. A driver seat armrest is also added to the Mirage SE and GT trims.

Choosing Your Mitsubishi Mirage

The Mirage is available to North American consumers in three trim levels including the base ES, SE, and GT. Each 2018 Mirage is powered by a 1.2-liter, three-cylinder engine that delivers 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque. The base ES comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission, while a continuously variable transmission can be added for an additional $1,200. All Mirages are front-wheel drive, with CVT’s returning an EPA-estimated 37 miles per gallon city, 41 mpg highway for a combined 39 mpg. The manual transmission produces slightly poorer fuel economy with 33 mpg city, 41 mpg highway, and a combined 36 mpg. The ES, SE and GT feature eight exterior colors and a single interior color pattern.

ES

The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES is a modest four-door subcompact starting at $14,260 (including an $865 destination charge). It comes equipped with power windows and locks, an air conditioning system, split-folding rear seats, hill start assist, and not a lot else. The ES rides on 14-inch steel wheels, has a tilt steering wheel only, and remote keyless entry with a panic button feature for added security.

The infotainment system for the ES features a seven-inch touchscreen with standard Bluetooth, a USB port, and a four-speaker sound system. When it comes to added accessories, the Mirage ES is an a la carte extravaganza. The only available options are dealer-installed accessories.

SE

The SE starts at $16,960 and is only available with the CVT. It includes all the features packed into the ES but adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto via a 6.5-inch display audio system. A passive entry system, fog lights, automatic climate control, and 14-inch alloy wheels, a six-way adjustable driver seat, cruise control, and a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel round out the improvements for the Mirage SE.

GT

The premium trim – and we use that term loosely – for the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is the GT, which begins at $17,460. The extra $500 cost above the SE gives owners the standard features included in that trim plus heated front seats, 15-inch wheels, HID headlights, and carpeted floor mats.

CarsDirect Tip

This subcompact gets exceptional fuel economy for a non-hybrid powered vehicle, but a number of problems outweigh that sole plus. It's not attractive, is terribly unpleasant to drive, and costs far too much money to tolerate either of those traits. Additionally, Mitsubishi's dealership network is minuscule compared to its Japanese rivals. If you absolutely need excellent fuel economy at a low price, consider a used Toyota Prius C before committing to a Mirage.
