Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 than the Chevrolet Sonic, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Sonic and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 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 G4, 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 G4. 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 G4.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Sonic is much wider than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Sonic, which is slightly longer than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

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 G4.

Handling
The Chevrolet Sonic has a larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, making it slightly 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 G4. 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 G4. The Chevrolet Sonic has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Sonic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.
