Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Elantra GT 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 Hyundai Elantra GT in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Mirage as you will with the Hyundai Elantra GT, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Hyundai Elantra GT. 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 and the Hyundai Elantra GT have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Mirage is much slimmer than the Hyundai Elantra GT, 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 Hyundai Elantra GT.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Mirage is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Elantra GT. 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 Hyundai Elantra GT. The Mitsubishi Mirage has less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Elantra GT, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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