2018 Mitsubishi Mirage review

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

The mirage is an all around great vehicle to drive. The seats are one of the most comfortable that I have sat in, which makes driving one of the most comfortable experiences. The 'bubble' like windows and windshield make sure you can see what is going on around your car at all times, almost no blind spots. The car is amazing on gas and only takes about twenty dollars to fill it and keep it going for a long time. Even if you are low in gas it tells you how many miles you have left to drive before you are empty. Also, switching gears is easy. The car is a stick shift with zero resistance. You don't have to yank and pull as hard as you can to get the car into different gears, it is a very smooth process. Overall, the car is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone.

Compact and fuel efficient. This is an excellent, reliable commuter vehicle.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage has been an excellent commuter vehicle for me. It had reasonable price tag and I purchased this to be my main vehicle to drive on my 2+ hour commute daily. With a 9.2 gallon tank and an average of 48 mpg this car has saved me so much on fuel. It's a relatively basic model but it does not lack in comfort or technology. I love the touch screen display, Bluetooth, and rear backup camera. The seats are comfortable and for a compact car it does not feel cramped at all inside. A pro and a con is the small engine; while it decreases the weight of the vehicle making it more fuel efficient, the acceleration is a little sluggish, but as someone who doesn't care about being the fastest car on the highway this doesn't bother me much.

Inexpensive and a great ride!

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

Love it. Drives great, very roomy, holds a ton of stuff. Love that it has backup camera even though it's the basic model and has all power windows. Awesome on gas. I get 38 miles to the gallon. I use mid grade only and it's around 20$ to fill it up. The sound system is great as well as the hands free works so well. All around this is the best bang for my bucks that I have ever had in a vehicle.

I enjoy my car, the perks far outweigh any minor cons

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

The gas mileage is insane! I love that the most. Its super cute and tiny for zipping through traffic. Cons is no cruise control and while I think driving stick is fun, my husband is over it. Not the cars fault. A/C blows super cool which is another item on things I love as we live in Florida. It' a 3-cyl and even so I can get her to get up and go.

The Mitsubishi mirage is very easy to maintain.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

My Mitsubishi mirage is very eco friendly, mileage for my vehicle is low and it only takes about 25 dollars to fill up my tank, depending on where gas prices are, I have had my vehicle for almost a year and all I have had done is an oil change, the car is not too small and it is not too big just the right size even to start a family with,

- Angela H

Great Mileage! Good size!

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

My mirage has great gas mileage. It takes $15 to fill the tank and I get about 300 miles per tank of gas. I can also go longer in between oil changes than most cars. Even though the car is a compact size, there is still plenty of room to store things in the hatchback. Despite it being small, my son's car seat still fits in the back seat.

- Shy-Ann C

Great on travel, bad on space.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

It is an awesome car with great gas mileage however it's not so great on space when your family gets bigger, it's great for a family of 4 but not so much for a family of 5 and the trunk space is not ideal for a stroller. It's a great car for the college bound to a family of 4, after that it has to be traded in for something bigger.

- Dorothy G

Surprisingly equipped vehicle with most of the upgrades of more expensive cars.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

I haven't had any real problem with the car.. my only complaint is that as short as I am (5 feet) and with vision that now requires more light, the dashboard is very difficult for me to see and I have yet to figure out from the instructions how to brighten it so I can see how fast or slow I'm going.

- Margaret D

Overall gas efficient, reliable and easy to drive.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

No problems with the vehicle so far however it is small so safety is a concern. There has been times that I am on the road and someone merged as if the vehicle is too small to see. The space is in the car is pretty spacious considering it does not look like it from the outside.

- Rose A

Perfect commuter and family car

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

I love my mirage. It's cute, affordable and gets great gas mileage. I commute to work and I'm able to spend less than $20 on gas a week. It's got a surprisingly roomy back seat for a compact hatchback. My friend who's 6 foot 4 commented on how comfortable he was back there!

- Breanna J

It's white with black inside

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

The gas mileage is really good also it runs smooth when driving it I love the size of the car. You can drive for a decent amount of time before needing to refill on gas. I love the camera on the back when backing up. It may be small but it has plenty of room.
