Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mitsubishi Mirage than the Hyundai Veloster, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Veloster, drivers may find the Mitsubishi Mirage a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Hyundai Veloster will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mitsubishi Mirage, 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). The Hyundai Veloster 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 Hyundai Veloster and the Mitsubishi Mirage have similar Destination Charges.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Veloster 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 Hyundai Veloster 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
The Hyundai Veloster has less seating than the Mitsubishi Mirage, making the Mitsubishi Mirage the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Veloster will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Warranty
The Hyundai Veloster comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Mirage.
