For The Mitsubishi Mirage is available with a decently strong 1.2-litre petrol engine and every version emits less than 100g/km of CO2. Safety kit is comprehensive.

Against There’s loads of wind noise and many rivals are better to drive. The interior feels cheap, there’s limited adjustment for the driver and Mitsubishi has a disappointing customer satisfaction record.

The Mitsubishi Mirage is hard to recommend when the competition is as strong as it is.

Buyer's notes

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.

Like most Mitsubishis, the Mirage is covered by a five-year, 60,000-mile warranty and five-years’ unlimited mileage roadside assistance.
