2017 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2017 MINI MINI-Hardtop 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Mirage, drivers may find the MINI MINI-Hardtop a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Mirage as you will with the MINI MINI-Hardtop, 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop. 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 and the MINI MINI-Hardtop have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Mirage is much slimmer than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Mitsubishi Mirage takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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

Handling
The Mitsubishi Mirage has a significantly smaller turning radius than the MINI MINI-Hardtop, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Mirage is significantly less powerful than the MINI MINI-Hardtop. 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 MINI MINI-Hardtop, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mitsubishi Mirage has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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