2015 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2015 FIAT 500 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 Mitsubishi Mirage than the FIAT 500. The Mitsubishi Mirage will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the FIAT 500.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Mirage as you will with the FIAT 500, 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). Based on MSRP, the Mitsubishi Mirage is clearly a better financial choice over the FIAT 500. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mitsubishi Mirage carries a much lower Destination Charge than the FIAT 500.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Mirage is much wider than the FIAT 500, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mitsubishi Mirage, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the FIAT 500.

Drivetrain
The Mitsubishi Mirage has much less torque than the FIAT 500, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Mirage has about the same turning radius as the FIAT 500, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Mirage is significantly less powerful than the FIAT 500. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mitsubishi Mirage offers greater seating capacity than the FIAT 500, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mitsubishi Mirage will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the FIAT 500.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mitsubishi Mirage than that of the FIAT 500.
