Reliable Powertrain and Agile Performance

The key to the 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage‘s reliability is its tried and tested powertrain. Under the hood is a nippy 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that delivers 76 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels. The engine is matched with a slick-shifting five-speed manual transmission in the ES trim level. Alternatively, you can opt for the continuously variable automatic transmission that comes standard in the other three Mirage trims.

Whether you’re tackling the daily commute, visiting the city, or heading out on a weekend adventure, the Mirage is ready to take you where you want to be. With its compact exterior dimensions and 15.1-foot turning radius, negotiating the city streets is a breeze, and you can get into the tightest parking spaces.

With the manual transmission, you’ll get up to 33 mpg around town and 41 mpg on the highway, while the continuously variable transmission rewards you with up to 36 and 43 mpg for city and highway driving. So, in addition to being one of the most reliable cars on the market and great fun to drive, it’s also one of the most economical vehicles in its class. 

Quirky Exterior Styling

With its bold front fascia, cute profile, and sporty rear-end design; the Mitsubishi Mirage creates a quirky and fun road presence that’ll get you noticed wherever your adventures take you around Fort Myers or Cape Coral. All trims feature welcome and coming home lighting. With the ES trim, you get color-keyed front and rear bumpers, a chrome-accented grille, halogen headlights, 14-inch steel wheels with full covers, color-keyed door handles, and side mirrors, a roof spoiler, and LED taillights.

The LE trim adds 14-inch alloy wheels. The uniquely styled Black Edition Mirage model offers a dark, sophisticated appearance. It features a stylish red-accented grille, 15-inch black alloy wheels, a black roof spoiler, black side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, and automatic headlights. Stepping up to the top-of-the-range SE trim gets you LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, 15-inch alloy wheels, and color-keyed mirrors with integrated turn signals.

Stylish and Spacious Cabin

The Mirage offers a surprisingly spacious cabin for a small hatchback for both passengers and cargo. You can carry up to five people in its comfortable and supportive seats and still have a generous 17.1 cubic feet of space for your luggage. When you’ve got more gear than passengers, folding down the versatile seating gives you an impressive 47-cubic-foot cargo area.

The cabin of the Mirage ES features remote keyless entry, durable fabric upholstery, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat, a four-way adjustable passenger seat, and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. You also get power windows, a silver-painted shift panel, and automatic climate control with a chrome-accented panel. The LE offers a leather and aluminum shift knob.

Going with the Black Edition gets you unique black and red interior trim, contrasting red-stitched upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob with red stitching. The range-topping SE adds the FAST-Key entry system, push-button start, synthetic leather-trimmed fabric seats, heated front seats, a driver’s seat armrest, a black leather-bound steering wheel, and shift knob, a chrome-accented instrument cluster, and an elegant gloss black shift panel.  

State-of-the-Art Technology for Reliable Connectivity

With the Mirage’s high-tech infotainment system, you’re always ensured to have a reliable connection. The 7-inch Smartphone Link Display Audio System with voice control and Bluetooth wireless technology features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, enabling you to take calls, send text messages, access your apps, and listen to your favorite tunes without looking away from the road.

The infotainment system and four-speaker audio are easily operated from the 7-inch touch screen and the convenient steering wheel-mounted controls. You can keep your devices charged with the front USB port and 12-volt power outlet.

Safety Features

The Mirage provides you with safety features and driver assistance technologies you can rely on to help keep you safe on the southwestern Florida roads. A seven airbag safety system includes front, front-seat-mounted, and side curtain airbags, along with additional driver protection with another airbag mounted under the driver’s side dashboard. The Mirage comes standard with active stability control, hill start assist, and an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist to keep you driving safely.

It also offers a standard forward collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection, a wide-angle rearview camera system to help you maneuver in tight spaces, and a tire pressure monitoring system. The SE trim adds lane departure warning and automatic high beam headlights.

Exceptional Warranty Coverage

For your peace of mind over the reliability of the Mirage, it comes with one of the best warranties on the market. The basic warranty covers the hatchback for five years or 60,000 miles. The powertrain covers ten years or 100,000 miles, while the anti-corrosion warranty lasts for seven or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

In the unlikely event that something does go wrong, you also get five-year, unlimited mileage roadside assistance. With that kind of coverage, you can be confident that your Mirage will provide you with many miles of trouble-free motoring.
