Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Insight offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, the Honda Insight may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Honda Insight you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, 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 Honda Insight will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, 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 Honda Insight and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Insight is much wider than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Honda Insight, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Handling
The Honda Insight has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Insight 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.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Honda Insight does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Insight and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4. The Honda Insight has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Warranty
