Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Honda Civic you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mitsubishi Mirage, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the Mitsubishi Mirage is clearly a better financial choice over the Honda Civic. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mitsubishi Mirage will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Civic.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Mirage is much slimmer than the Honda Civic, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mitsubishi Mirage, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Civic.

Drivetrain
The Mitsubishi Mirage has much less torque than the Honda Civic, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Mirage has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda Civic, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Mirage is significantly less powerful than the Honda Civic. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Mirage and the Honda Civic. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Mitsubishi Mirage as you will in the Honda Civic.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mitsubishi Mirage than that of the Honda Civic.
