2015 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2015 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mitsubishi Mirage and the MINI MINI-Hardtop in the front seats.

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. In this case, the Mitsubishi Mirage will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the MINI MINI-Hardtop.

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. If you go with the Mitsubishi Mirage, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with 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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Mirage and the MINI MINI-Hardtop. 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.
