2022 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. Its Competition

2022 Mitsubishi Mirage
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Subcompact cars such as the Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, and Nissan Versa are no longer penalty boxes.

All three of these vehicles have a classy feel over the road, with decent power underhood, a comfortable ride, and plenty of features for the money – money that’s only slightly more than a Mirage.

The Chevy Spark is the cheapest way into a new car this year, and aside from lacking crash-avoidance tech, it’s actually a fairly appealing small car.
