Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Review – Perfect for College Students and Young Professionals
For the past year, I’ve had the pleasure to review vehicles for Drive Shop, and the Mitsubishi 2017 Mirage G4 SE sedan is definitely a vehicle that stands out. A well-priced economy car that is minimal on features but great on gas mileage. The car starts at just under 17k, and looking at it, you see a small yet trendy automobile that does what Mitsubishi is known for, handle wear and tear all maintaining the high of mechanical performance that company with the 3 diamonds in their logo stands by.
When I first saw the Mirage I remembered the earlier version of the car from my youth, a stylish mid-sized car that would be akin today’s Nissan Altima. However, the new Mirage is a lot smaller, more like a compact car. Being a bigger guy the ride was not that comfortable, but the stylish touchscreen media outlet which served as the focal point of the convenience features of this car which was pretty cool. So after settling in for the first time and finding my favorite radio station, I was ready to ride.
The Mirage G4 rides smooth considering its a smaller car Mitsubishi’s 12-valve 3 cylinder engine. Acceleration is mostly smooth and the car shifts well between gears. For a smaller car, it has good trunk space and seats 4 average sized people comfortably. Of course, the gas mileage in the Mirage is phenomenal. The convenience features such as the 6.5” display media screen equipped with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, push button start, and Bluetooth hands-free phone.
This Mirage G4 sedan priced at $16,995 new off the showroom floor represents a car that matches several groups of people. Group one the kid in high school who gets good grades and you want to reward them with a brand new car for all of their hard work and efforts. Group two the young professional fresh out of college and looking to change the world but wants to make economically sound decisions. Group three the senior citizen that is looking for a nice looking compact option that is dependable and can get them from point A to point B with no worry.
All and all the Mirage G4 is not high on the bells and whistles but was created to do what a car is supposed to do. Get you where you need to be safe, on time and efficiently.
