2014 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2014 Nissan Cube Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Cube than the Mitsubishi Mirage, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Cube will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

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

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Mirage is a little narrower than the Nissan Cube, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Nissan Cube.

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

Handling
The Mitsubishi Mirage has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Nissan Cube, 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 Nissan Cube. 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 Nissan Cube. The Mitsubishi Mirage has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Cube, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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