Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Mirage requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Spark, 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Spark or the Mitsubishi Mirage, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Spark and the Mitsubishi Mirage have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Spark is much slimmer than the Mitsubishi Mirage, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Spark is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Mirage, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Spark transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Handling
The Chevrolet Spark 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 Spark is somewhat more powerful than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Utility
The Chevrolet Spark has less seating than the Mitsubishi Mirage, making the Mitsubishi Mirage the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Spark has significantly less cargo room than the Mitsubishi Mirage, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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