Mitsubishi has made subtle changes to the Mitsubishi Mirage for the 2018 model year.
The ultra-cheap hatchback will now come standard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen display in ES base models. Joining the new display is a standard rearview camera and a steering-wheel mounted Bluetooth switch for additional ease of use. There’s also a standard center console USB port and driver’s seat armrests in the higher end SE and GT trims. The Smartphone link system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto remains in SE and GT trims as well.
“The Mirage offers consumers a new vehicle option that provides the reliability, connectivity and warranty-reassurance that other cars in the segment cannot,” said Mitsubishi North America’s Don Swearingen. “The practical appeal seen in its predecessors is at the core of the 2018 Mirage and we look forward to seeing this model-year continue to build on its steadfast momentum.”

The Mirage’s 78 horsepower 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine remains unchanged for 2018 and is offered with the same five-speed manual or CVT automatic transmissions. It also retains the two features that have attracted most buyers: a fully transferable 5-year/60,000 mile limited warranty and 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty and a $13,395 price tag. If cheap is what you like – the Mirage is your bag.
