Are you looking for an affordable car with the tech and fuel efficiency to take you anywhere? Well, the Mirage might be exactly the vehicle you’ve been searching for. Not only does it come with a range of tech options, including an integrated touchscreen and is ready for your Bluetooth devices, Edmunds’ ranked the 2020 Mirage among the Best Gas Mileage Cars.

Car and Driver was also impressed with the fuel efficiency, as well as the continuously variable transmission (CVT). A CVT gives small cars a lot more oomph, improving acceleration even in cars with low horsepower.

“According to the EPA, the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage achieves fuel economy of 36 mpg city and 43 mpg highway with the optional CVT,” Car and Driver reports. “These numbers are extremely impressive, and they make the Mirage a more fuel-efficient choice than the Chevy Spark.”

Who Should Buy a Mirage?

The Mitsubishi Mirage is an affordable entry-level car with a lot of features available, making it a good choice for a lot of people. Trim lines range in price from $13,995 to $17,295, putting even the highest end Mirage well within many household budgets.

Families with children should take note of this one. The car can seat five, with good head and shoulder room. The Mirage also features two complete sets of LATCH connectors in the back seat, as well as an upper tether for the middle seat, giving parents an easier and faster way to put in and take out child car seats.

Combine the young family-friendly configuration with 17.1 cubic foot of space behind the seats in the standard Mirage (12.6 cubic feet of trunk space in the Mirage G4) and you have a vehicle that’s going places – with your kids. And you’ll feel pretty good about that with the 4-star safety rating from NHTSA!
