Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Cruze you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mitsubishi Mirage, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The Chevrolet Cruze will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mitsubishi Mirage, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much wider than the Mitsubishi Mirage, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Cruze, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze has a much more powerful engine than the Mitsubishi Mirage. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Mitsubishi Mirage. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Cruze as you will in the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Cruze is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Mirage.
