2021 Mitsubishi Mirage ES Review: Would You Drive this Small Car for 10 years?
Auto123 reviews the 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage ES.
The city car as an idea has been around throughout the world for a long time, but Canada has never really been fertile ground for it. Maybe we just have too much country and not enough city. In any event, since the Mirage launched in Canada in 2013, Mitsubishi has sold about as many units of its city sprite (just under 20,000) in eight years as Ford did of its F-150… in the first two months of this year.
Yes I know, it’s grossly unfair to compare the best-selling vehicle in North America with a small car that's been kind of maligned by the automotive press since its introduction here; but I chose the Dearborn pickup purely to make a point.
If you want to compare apples and apples, the Mitsubishi microcar has only one rival on the market: the Chevrolet Spark. And before I even get to my driving impressions regarding the most affordable car in the three-diamond brand’s lineup, if you're thinking of going with the Mirage, you owe it to yourself to make the time to test drive the Spark - you probably won't be disappointed!
The purpose of this review, however, is to figure out if the 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage ES is worth the $15,183 (including $1,325 preparation fee) it costs.Read more
