The closest competitor in size to the Mitsubishi Mirage is the Chevrolet Spark, redesigned for 2016 and a better vehicle in virtually every way.
The Spark’s styling, features, and modern infotainment all contrast favorably with those of the Mirage.
It’s less fuel-efficient and a bit more expensive, but we’d take it over the Mirage without hesitation.
The Fiat 500, unlike the Spark, is a three-door hatchback.
While it’s still stylish, it’s really only usable by two adults and its interior, features, and powertrains are now old and far behind the curve.
The Smart Fortwo might have been an inexpensive competitor for buyers who only need two seats, but this year, it’s only available as an electric car—no gasoline powertrain at all—which boosts its price considerably.
Finally, the Hyundai Accent and Nissan Versa are subcompacts, larger than the Mirage but either nicer (the Accent) or far larger inside (the Versa) for little more money.
