The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.0
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is the most minimal four-seat car you can buy; with small cars lagging in sales, you can do better for little more money. The 2018 Chevrolet Spark is a better minicar than competitors, but a larger subcompact or compact simply offers more—at a price that’s likely close.
