Mitsubishi Mirage Perfect Car For The City

 

Last week I drove a 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage, the perfect little car for someone who is vertically challenged like myself ( I stand at a tall 4ft. 11in.). I really enjoyed this car because it fit into all of the parallel parking spaces in the city. Did you know that they have compact car spaces in a lot of garages in Chicago? Well they do and I fit perfectly in those spaces in this Mirage. I felt safe even though the car is small it can comfortably seat 5 people and lots of stuff in the trunk. The car has keyless entry and push button start, which appears to be a standard in new vehicles.

This little button allows you to lock and unlock the doors without hitting any buttons on the remote. As long as the remote is near the car the button will work.

 

Safety

This is a very safe vehicle 4/5 stars Frontal Crash and Rollover 5/5 Side Crash. I will be honest with you I used to think little cars were more prone to crumbling in a crash. I am so glad to report that is not true for this vehicle. If you recall my review of the Mitsubishi Outlander¬†you remember that it had 7 airbags. Would you believe this little car has 7 airbags as well??? I couldn’t believe it myself. The Mirage also has RiSE ( Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) Construction deflects and transfers crash, this is the technology that prevents fatalities in crashes.

Cost

As you all know I LOVE a deal and this car was ranked #1 in Cars.com’s “New Cars for Penny Pinchers”. The car starts at $13K which is a great starter car for a new driver or first car for a new college graduate. Also the car is EXCELLENT on mileage. 44 highway miles!!! Chicago has some of the most expensive gas in the country it was great the a full tank went a LONG WAY!!

 

I am a HUGE fan of the Mirage and I hope that if you have a young person that needs a starter car you will consider this vehicle. Please visit http://mitsubishi.com
