2019 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. Its Competition

2019 Mitsubishi Mirage
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Mirage’s closest competitor in terms of size is the Chevrolet Spark, which was recently refreshed and is superior to the Mitsubishi in almost every way.

The Fiat 500 has much more character than almost any other subcompact car, but only three doors and questionable reliability.

The Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio are both fresh designs, and offer great value for the money and similar powertrain options and features as they’re based on the same platform.

The Nissan Versa is showing its age, but is still the cheapest new car on sale and has plenty of space for a subcompact sedan.
