2014 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2014 Nissan Versa Note Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Versa Note than the Mitsubishi Mirage, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Mirage, drivers may find the Nissan Versa Note a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Nissan Versa Note requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mitsubishi Mirage, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mitsubishi Mirage will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Versa Note. 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 Versa Note have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Mirage is a little narrower than the Nissan Versa Note, 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 Versa Note.

Drivetrain
The Mitsubishi Mirage has much less torque than the Nissan Versa Note, 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 Versa Note, 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 Versa Note. 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 Versa Note. The Mitsubishi Mirage has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Nissan Versa Note.

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