2020 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. Its Competition

2020 Mitsubishi Mirage
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

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

The Nissan Versa is new this year, and gets a fresh look and more space.
