Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Kia K5 than in the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, due to the Kia K5's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Kia K5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Convenience
With the Kia K5 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 Kia K5 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 Kia K5 and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 have similar Destination Charges.

Handling
The Kia K5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
