The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage five-door hatchback is larger than a minicar, smaller than a subcompact, but offers practical transport at a low price--and the highest non-hybrid gas mileage of any car sold--at the cost of weak acceleration and sloppy handling. Affordable small cars don't need to be bland, whether in appearance or from behind the wheel. And the 2014 Ford Fiesta is proof of that.
