Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Kia Rio 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Rio will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Kia Rio and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Rio is much wider than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Kia Rio takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Kia Rio does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Handling
The Kia Rio 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 Kia Rio 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 Kia Rio and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4. The Kia Rio has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Warranty
The Kia Rio comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.
