I will say, I've driven several of these. They are pretty dynamically poor, noisy, and unpleasant to drive, but they are very cheap to buy and run and pretty spacious for being a very small car.


I also haven't really heard of any glaring quality or reliability issues on them either. Mitsubishi also offers a very competitive warranty, 5 years, 60k miles bumper to bumper, and 10/100k powertrain. And Mitsubishi is offering a lot of discounts, and they're easy to get financing for.

Thing is, not everyone is a petrol head or drives cars dynamically on twisty roads, some - especially elder folks - don't even drive on motorways. Urban runabouts like this need for many just to be cheap to buy and maintain, reliable and spacious, and the Mirage will tick the boxes, if you are willing to compromise in areas you don't use.....

Eh, by dynamically poor, I don't just mean bad handling. It also has bad freeway manners as well, feeling darty and easily blown around at 65-70MPH in ways that cars even like the Chevy Spark or Fiat 500 aren't. It makes a Toyota Yaris feel like a Lotus Elise. But you're right, for someone who has to have something new, the Mirage isn't a horrible option from the cost and reliability standpoint.

Having driven one for 300 miles on a high way trip (averaging 85 MPH) I fully agree with the entirety of the statement.

But I'll also say that a Lotus Elise can be a terrible highway cruiser as it's small and short too. Of course, highway use is the exact opposite of it's very focused intention. Cheers!

Here it is, with - as expected - mostly a new front end and slightly revised rear;

Mitsubishi claims also now soft touch materials inside, at least the fabric instead of plastic on the door cards looks okay.
