2017 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2017 smart fortwo Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mitsubishi Mirage and the smart fortwo in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Mirage will require fewer stops at the gas station than the smart fortwo, 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 smart fortwo. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Mitsubishi Mirage is much higher than that for the smart fortwo.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Mirage is much slimmer than the smart fortwo, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 smart fortwo.

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

Handling
The Mitsubishi Mirage has a significantly larger turning radius than the smart fortwo, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mitsubishi Mirage has less horsepower than the smart fortwo, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Mitsubishi Mirage more than the smart fortwo, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mitsubishi Mirage will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the smart fortwo.

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