Mitsubishi Mirage Overview

Mitsubishi's tiny, Thailand-built subcompact seems like an act of desperation, dressing a primitive Asia-market car with some upscale toys and calling it a day. Good points include a relatively absorbent ride, terrific 37-mpg fuel economy, and an accommodating rear seat. The uplevel ES also brings a fancy radio, push-button start, auto climate system, and Bluetooth. However, the weak, vibrating, and incredibly noisy three-cylinder engine provides sluggish acceleration and handling so clumsy that it's disconcerting, and the cabin is depressingly low-rent. Further lowering its standing is its Poor score in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
