While the Mirage offers great efficiency and a not too bad ride, none of it compensates for its hidden crudity, especially considering that the little Mitsu sedan's cost and features set it against the substantially more pleasant Nissan Versa.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Engine Performance Specs

The main engine available in the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a 1.2-liter 3-cylinder with a modest 78 horsepower, four more than a year ago. The engine's essential obligation is sparing fuel, and it does this honorably, offering up to 42 mpg on the roadway and 35 mpg in the city, numbers we normally connect with hybrids. The drawback is this isn't the most exquisite powertrain.

The engine vibrates perceptibly out of gear - despite the fact that it's superior to anything it was before - and at full throttle it sings a rough, moaning tune that will dishearten investigating the range of the gas pedal. Lamentably, regardless of the possibility that you simply need to stay aware of traffic leaving a stoplight, you'll have to floor it, which obviously harms efficiency.

The EPA's evaluated efficiency for the Mirage with the five-speed manual is 35 mpg consolidated (33 mpg city/40 mpg roadway). With the CVT, the appraisals are significantly higher at 37 mpg joined (35 city/42 thruway), which is amazing for a non-hybrid vehicle.

While we haven't yet tried a Mirage G4, we don't anticipate that performance numbers will be boundlessly unique in relation to the hatchback form. In Edmunds performance testing, a 2015 Mirage (making 74 horsepower) with the CVT went from zero to 60 mph in 11.7 seconds, a moderate time notwithstanding for a subcompact car.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Exterior Review
While we wouldn't call the 2018 Mirage G4 revolting, it doesn't profit by the cutesy appeal of some other jellybean-like subcompacts. The styling changes during the current year apply to the hatchback and sedan, with both getting a greater grille with more chrome, and a more nitty gritty lower guard.

The storage compartment gives the little auto a more develop persona, and keeping in mind that it offers nice payload space, the rear seats don't overlap down for long questions as they do in the hatchback. The Mirage G4 is available in a couple eye-getting hues, for example, splendid orange Infrared, or the purplish Wine Red of our test Ride.

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Interior Design

Most surfaces are hard plastic and not especially wonderful to touch or take a gander at. On a positive note, all the fundamental controls are effortlessly open and easy to utilize. The absence of an extending steering wheel may make it somewhat troublesome for a few drivers to get settled in the driver's seat, however taller people ought to discover enough head-and legroom. On longer drives, the hard door armrests and the absence of a front focus armrest diminish driver comfort.

In the rear, headroom and shoulder room are constrained, and normal size grown-ups will probably discover the quarters cramped. Moreover, the rear seat is very level, with insignificant padding. Payload room measures 12.3 cubic feet, or marginally smaller than most other subcompact sedans.

Changes to the inside this year incorporate piano-dark accents, an updated and shockingly great infotainment framework, and a couple of different bits of trim all over. Tragically, soft-touch surfaces weren't among the progressions, and the Mirage offers no cushioned elbow rest and no inside armrest at all.

The steady seat cushioning and material propose comfort, and the seat radiators are strikingly productive, however the lousy seating position makes it hard to actually get settled. What's more, there are shabby touches all around, similar to the Bluetooth amplifier clumsily attached on top of the steering segment, or the USB dongle covered up in the glove box.

A rearview camera is optional on the ES and standard on the SE, while rear stopping sensors are optional on both trim levels.

We haven't tried a Mirage G4 yet, yet in brake testing, a 2015 Mirage hatchback ground to a halt from 60 mph in 121 feet. This is a normal separation for a car in this class.

In crash testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Mirage hatchback got the most noteworthy conceivable rating of "Good" in the moderate-cover frontal-offset, side-effect and roof quality tests. The Mirage's seat/head limitation design was additionally appraised "Great" for whiplash security in rear effects. In that office's small-cover frontal-offset test, in any case, the Mirage got the most reduced score of "Poor."

In the latest government testing available as of this written work, the Mirage earned four-of-five conceivable stars for overall crash assurance, with four stars for frontal-affect safety and five stars for side-affect safety.

The essential 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 accompanies aerating and cooling, tilt (however not extending) steering with electric help, and power windows, doors and mirrors. Likewise standard is keyless section with an alert, a USB port, and a 4-speaker sound framework. It's somewhat meager, yet not astonishing considering the low base cost.
