The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Smart ForTwo promises parking ease—and this time, maybe better fuel economy and handling. 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.
