MITSUBISHI Mirage review

NGC verdict 18.07.2013

City cars can lead a very hard life and need to be tough. While a test like this can't assess longevity, the Mirage feels robust despite being the lightest car in its class and Mitsubishi's reputation speaks for itself.

The car is unusually spacious for its size, especially in the rear seats, though boot space is slightly down on some rivals. Five doors make a big difference to every day ease of use though the door handles are fiddly and potential nail breakers. The air conditioning proved very effective during some hot weather and the car is well equipped. The Mirage is pleasant enough to drive, though dynamically not up to the standard of the Volkswagen's Up or its brothers. Tyre noise and general commotion was too loud on some motorway surfaces.
