There are 3 Mitsubishi Mirage versions available
Target Price team says:
Mitsubishi is offering the Mirage as a five-door only, but there are two three-cylinder petrol engines to choose between: a 1.0-litre and a 1.2.
The 1.0-litre model is rather stingily equipped, so we reckon it’s worth upgrading to the 2-spec 1.2, which adds two extra speakers, rear electric windows and air-conditioning.
There’s also a 3-spec 1.2 that adds alloy wheels, keyless entry, climate control and front and rear parking sensors, but this model pushes the price uncomfortably high.

I really don't understand the bad reviews...it's hard to imagine an easier to drive and cheaper to run small car to drive around town. Build quality…
