Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2021 Mitsubishi Mirage Overview

Willis Kuelthau
Automotive Editor - March 11, 2021

What's New

The 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage remains the second cheapest car on sale in the U.S.A., behind only the Chevrolet Spark. This year brings a mild refresh with a new look and a few additional standard features.

Automatic emergency braking is now included with every model, as are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If the revised exterior isn’t spicy enough for you, a racy Carbonite Edition joins the trim range.

Choosing Your Mitsubishi Mirage

The 2021 Mirage hatchback comes in four flavors: ES, LE, Carbonite Edition, and SE. Prices start at $15,565 for a Mirage ES with a manual transmission. Even the most expensive Mirage won’t exceed $20,000.

If you're looking for a more traditional sedan layout, see our page about the 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage G4. Both styles have similar price points and features.

Engine Choices

Every Mirage uses the same tiny 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine. The powerplant makes 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque, giving the Mirage the dubious honor of being the least powerful car on the market. Front-wheel drive is the only option. Most trims come with a CVT, but the base ES starts with a five-speed manual.

The payoff for low power is fuel economy, and here the Mirage delivers. When equipped with a CVT, the EPA estimates that the Mirage will do up to 39 mpg combined (the manual manages 36). That’s excellent for a non-hybrid powertrain, and better than rivals like the Chevy Spark or Honda Fit.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Every Mirage seats five. Three adults may not have room to stretch in the back, but 34.2 inches of rear legroom is decent for a car this size.

The Mirage’s hatchback body helps it to a respectable cargo capacity of 17 cubic feet, or 47 with the seats folded. That’s strong for the class, though it can’t match the capacious Honda Fit.

Safety Features

2021 brings a welcome update with the addition of standard automatic emergency braking. Unfortunately, the good news ends there — the top SE trim gets lane-departure warnings, but other advanced safety features are missing from the lineup. A mediocre IIHS crash-test report card offers little reassurance.

Connectivity

Infotainment is another area of improvement this year. The Mirage’s seven-inch infotainment touchscreen is now compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A Rockford Fosgate sound system is on the options list.

Mirage ES — From $15,565

The Mirage ES keeps features basic to keep the price low. The seats adjust manually, and upholstery is cloth. Tires sit on tiny 14-inch steel wheels. Even the ES gets a few perks, including automatic climate control and keyless entry. The infotainment system comes with Bluetooth connectivity and a single USB port.

The ES is the only trim that starts with a five-speed manual transmission. Upgrading to the CVT costs an extra $1,300.

The options list is short. Notable add-ons include parking sensors ($500), remote start ($545), and Rockford Fosgate audio ($595).

Mirage LE — From $17,490

The LE is identical to the ES in all but two respects: the CVT transmission is standard, and the steel wheels are swapped for 14-inch alloys. Otherwise, equipment and options remain the same.

Mirage Carbonite Edition — From $18,265

New for 2021, the Carbonite Edition starts with the features of the Mirage LE and adds a few aesthetic tweaks. The grille gets red accents, and the side air dams are patterned in red and gray. A few special-edition badges decorate the interior and exterior.

Mirage SE — From $18,715

The Mirage SE is as luxurious as this model gets. Heated seats come standard, as do a leather-wrapped steering wheel and push-button start. Safety gets a mild upgrade with lane-departure warnings, and the wheels grow to 15 inches.

CarsDirect Tip

The Mirage makes the most sense as a value pick — upper trims push the price close to more refined competition. Stick to the base ES.
