Car Profiles - Mitsubishi Mirage

MITSUBISHI MIRAGE

In what could be Mitsubishi's missing link, the Mirage was a sales success especially it offered more space at a price where others have smaller ones. Advanced MIVEC engine, lightweight construction and fuel thrifty CVT, makes this very capable of high MPG motoring.  Aimed at developing countries, don't expect high levels of refinement. 

The Good: Very fuel efficient, content for price ratio making it the best value in the super mini class.
The Bad: Unrefined, tinny feeling at times.

Price Range: P555,000-P715,000
Our Rating: ***
