The refreshed Mirage 2017 is already competing in the lower price category, but this did not dissuade Mitsubishi from accumulating on incentives. Consistent with its negotiating mission, the Mirage is the easiest to find in the entry-level DE fittings and the manual change models are kept in a good supply. The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage report is now available. The mid-level SE is $ 1,300 higher this year because an automatic transmission is now standard.
2018 Mitsubishi Mirage Inside
Improvements to the interior this year include a new touch-sensitive audio system, a rear-view camera and a relocated USB port. Unfortunately, the soft surfaces are not among the most positive, and the Mirage does not offer a padded elbow pad, even if it gains a central armrest on the driver side this year. The upholstery and retaining fabric promote comfort, and seat heaters are remarkably efficient, but the poor position of the seats makes it difficult to feel comfortable. And there are inexpensive keys everywhere, like the Bluetooth microphone, with no hitch on the steering column.

Outside of 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage
Although we would not call Mirage in 2018, it does not enjoy the cutesy charm of some other jelly-like subcompacts. The tailgate and sedan have a large chrome grille with a very detailed lower bumper. The trunk gives the small car a more mature personality and, although it offers a decent load space, the rear seats do not fold as in the hatch, although there is a passage for longer objects. The Mirage G4 is available in some attractive colors, such as the bright orange infrared or bright red violet of our test car.
The Mirage is powered by a 1.2 liter gasoline engine that makes 78 hp. It comes in two fittings. In the ES base, the Mirage comes with a 5-speed manual transmission. The 5-speed manual transmission offers 36-mpg and the CVT offers a better 39-mpg.
