2015 Honda Fit vs. 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Fit than the Mitsubishi Mirage. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Fit, drivers may find the Mitsubishi Mirage a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Fit 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 Honda Fit will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mitsubishi Mirage, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Fit and the Mitsubishi Mirage have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Fit is much wider than the Mitsubishi Mirage, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Honda Fit, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Honda Fit does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Handling
The Honda Fit has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Mirage, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Fit has a much more powerful engine than the Mitsubishi Mirage. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Fit and the Mitsubishi Mirage. The Honda Fit has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Fit is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Mirage.
