Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Sonic offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mitsubishi Mirage. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Sonic and the Mitsubishi Mirage in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Sonic as you will with the Mitsubishi Mirage, 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). The Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Mirage. 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 Sonic carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Sonic 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 Sonic, 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 Sonic does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Sonic 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 Sonic and the Mitsubishi Mirage. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Sonic as you will in the Mitsubishi Mirage.

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