The front seats of the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage are comfortable, but most drivers—taller ones especially—will find the lower cushions slightly short. Bolstering in the backrest is good, though, and the seats were comfortable over several hours of test driving. The steering wheel tilts, but does not telescope.

The rear seat is relatively thin, and while there’s legroom in the back for adults, it requires negotiation with front occupants. Four adults will be a tight fit, but are at least possible—unlike three-door minicars with four nominal places, like the Fiat 500 or MINI Cooper. Mitsubishi calls it a five-seat car, but fitting three in the rear would require all of them to be children or skinny teenagers.

Cargo space is good for the segment, with 17.2 cubic feet of volume with the rear seat up and 47.0 cubic feet with the rear seat folded forward. While that's relatively large for such a small car, the load floor is not flat with the seat folded. Ultimately, the Mirage has nowhere near the versatility of the Honda Fit’s Magic Seat arrangement, which permits removal of the entire rear seat if needed. A cargo tray and cargo net package is $95 extra.

At steady rates of travel, the Mirage is decently quiet, and it rides well on good road surfaces. Press the car hard, however, and engine noise rises to a loud howl and stays there. Broken roads bring out the worst in the Mirage, as its small 14-inch wheels crash over ruts and expansion joints.

Conclusion

The 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage is a simple, inexpensive car; the ride, noise level, and materials reflect that.

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.
