2021 Mitsubishi Mirage Review: Fitness for Purpose

“You are a perfectly adequate little car.”

My partner gently pats the textured dashboard of the 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage SE as it buzzes along with the flow of traffic. I’m foot to the floor, and the Mitsu’s CVT is wringing the little three-cylinder engine for every one of its 78 horsepower. In those seven words of affirmation, she both provides perspective and effectively sums up this diminutive hatchback. How appropriately efficient.

The Mirage is not a car to wow people. It is not flashy, nor quick, nor capaciously roomy. No, this miniature Mitsubishi is back-to-basics transportation at its most elemental, a niche the brand is continuing to invest in. With the latest round of improvements for the 2021 model year, the Mirage proves cheap and cheerful can still co-exist in today’s crossover-obsessed market.
