You get a simple dashboard layout, but some people may struggle to find a comfortable driving position because there’s no reach adjustment on the steering wheel and you can change only the angle of the seat base – not the height. Over-the-shoulder vision is also limited due to thick rear pillars and a rising window line.
Mitsubishi Mirage space & practicality
The cabin is spacious enough for four, and a fifth person can squeeze in for short journeys; unlike many modern cars, the Mirage has a flat rear bench rather than one that’s shaped for two. The boot is pretty small, though, and there’s a step in the floor when the rear seats are folded down.
Mitsubishi Mirage equipment
The 1.0-litre car comes with front electric windows and a two-speaker stereo with a USB socket. However, the entry-level 1.2 is the pick of the range, with two extra speakers, rear electric windows and air-conditioning. Top-spec 1.2s also get alloy wheels, keyless entry, climate control and front and rear parking sensors.
