The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage smaller than a subcompact and larger than a minicar, but offers five-door hatchback versatility on the cheap–and the best fuel economy you'll find in a non-hybrid car. That comes at a price in performance, though. The 2014 Toyota Yaris is built for city commuting, but on highways it reveals some major weak spots.
