Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Toyota Corolla Hatchback 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 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. 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 Toyota Corolla Hatchback have similar Destination Charges.

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 Toyota Corolla Hatchback.

Drivetrain
