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 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.
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
