Comparison Review

The Mitsubishi Mirage offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Prius Prime. The Toyota Prius Prime will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Mirage.

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 Prius Prime.

Since the Mitsubishi Mirage is much slimmer than the Toyota Prius Prime, 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 Toyota Prius Prime.

The Mitsubishi Mirage has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Toyota Prius Prime, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mitsubishi Mirage does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius Prime.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Mirage and the Toyota Prius Prime.
