The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is one the smallest, most affordable cars sold in the U.S., but it's also more spacious than a traditional minicar.
The Toyota Yaris is larger and more refined, yet it can't match the Mirage for fuel economy.
The Ford Fiesta is larger yet offers considerably worse fuel economy.
The Chevy Spark is the Mirage's closest competitor, but it's more attractive and better built, with more available technology.
The Spark should be the car that satisfies most shoppers, though the Mirage is hard to beat when it comes to price and fuel economy.
The Smart Fortwo is new this year and, while smaller on the outside, has much-improved comfort and cabin refinement.
The Kia Rio is also worth considering; even though it's due to be replaced in the next year or so with a redesigned model, the current version also offers a lot of features and value, and one of the lowest sticker prices on the market.
