Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 than the Nissan Versa. The Nissan Versa will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4.

Convenience
The Nissan Versa requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Versa. 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 G4 will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan Versa.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is much slimmer than the Nissan Versa, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is slightly shorter than the Nissan Versa, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Nissan Versa, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is significantly less powerful than the Nissan Versa. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 has much less torque than the Nissan Versa, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
