2016 Chevrolet Spark vs. 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Chevrolet Spark than in the Mitsubishi Mirage, due to the Chevrolet Spark's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Spark and the Mitsubishi Mirage in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Spark as you will with the Mitsubishi Mirage, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Spark is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Mirage. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Spark will cost more in transportation costs than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Mitsubishi Mirage, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Spark is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Mirage, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Spark transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Spark is somewhat more powerful than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark has less seating than the Mitsubishi Mirage, making the Mitsubishi Mirage the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Spark has significantly less cargo room than the Mitsubishi Mirage, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Spark is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Mirage.
