The 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage comes in just two trim levels, the base DE and the better-equipped ES. Each is available with either the five-speed manual gearbox or the continuously variable transmission.

Starting at $12,995 (plus a $795 delivery fee, mandatory on all models), the Mirage DE comes standard with automatic climate control; power windows, locks, and mirrors; variable intermittent wipers; and a 60/40 split folding rear seat back. The standard audio system has AM, FM, and a CD player, plus an audio input jack, a USB port, and a 12-Volt power outlet. The steel wheels are fitted with plastic wheel covers.

Moving up to the Mirage ES adds $1,200 to the price. For that, you get alloy wheels, cruise control, a pushbutton start, height-adjustable driver’s seat, fog lamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, audio controls on the steering wheel, Bluetooth pairing for smartphones, and a handful of silver and chrome trim accents.

The ES can be equipped with a $900 navigation package that also includes a backup camera and iPod playback capability. The 7-inch touchscreen is integrated into the center of the dash, but Mitsubishi admits that it expects only 5 percent of Mirage buyers will opt for it. The Chevrolet Spark system, which has a similarly sized touchscreen that uses a $50 smartphone app called Bringgo for navigation, seems like a much more sensible way to provide navigation on a car at this price level.

Other trim and customization options for the 2014 Mirage include a $695 appearance package that adds lower body skirts for the front, sides, and rear of the car, a $450 parking assist option with front and rear sensors, and LED interior lighting for $185. All told, Mitsubishi says it will be very hard to spend more than $16,000 (plus delivery) on even the most lavishly-optioned Mirage.

Like the Chevy Spark against which it competes most directly, the Mirage is offered in both standard colors—white, silver, grey, and black—but also a rainbow of brighter and more startling shades. Names for these colors, including Infrared, Plasma Purple, Kiwi Green, and Sapphire Blue, were suggested by Mitsubishi fans on social media, who then voted on the best names for each of four colors.

Mitsubishi covers the Mirage for 5 years or 60,000 miles under warranty, and provides 5 years of roadside assistance. The powertrain, however, is covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles.

Conclusion

The 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage has automatic climate control and power accessories--but don't expect anything close to luxury.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
