2014 Hyundai Accent vs. 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Accent offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Mirage with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Mirage, the Hyundai Accent may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Hyundai Accent will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mitsubishi Mirage, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Hyundai Accent 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 Hyundai Accent and the Mitsubishi Mirage have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Accent is a little wider than the Mitsubishi Mirage, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Hyundai Accent, 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 Hyundai Accent does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Handling
The Hyundai Accent 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 Hyundai Accent 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 Hyundai Accent and the Mitsubishi Mirage. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Hyundai Accent as you will in the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Warranty
The Hyundai Accent comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Mirage.
