Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Soul than the Mitsubishi Mirage. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Kia Soul and the Mitsubishi Mirage in the front seats.

Convenience
The Kia Soul 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 Kia Soul 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 Destination Charge for the Kia Soul is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Mirage.

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

Handling
The Kia Soul 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 Kia Soul 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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Soul and the Mitsubishi Mirage. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Kia Soul will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

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