2018 Hyundai Elantra GT vs. 2018 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 Hyundai Elantra GT than the Mitsubishi Mirage. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Elantra GT 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 Hyundai Elantra GT 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 Hyundai Elantra GT 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 Elantra GT and the Mitsubishi Mirage have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Elantra GT 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 Hyundai Elantra GT, 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 Elantra GT does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Handling
The Hyundai Elantra GT 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 Elantra GT 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 Elantra GT and the Mitsubishi Mirage. The Hyundai Elantra GT has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

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