The Mitsubishi Mirage has replaced the impressive Colt with a stylish car that's cheap to run and packed with equipment. There's also plenty of space on board though tall adults may find the rear seats and comfortable on a long drive.
There are just two 3 cylinder petrol engines to choose from but both are quite sprightly and the Mirage offers decent fuel economy. The 1.0 litre will return 67 mpg with the 1.2 litre version returning 69 mpg. Both engines produce CO2 emissions of 96g/km by making good use of regenerative braking to capture the braking power being used to slow the car down and stop-start technology. The Mirage is a decent performer around town but the engines do feel underpowered on long motorway journeys; the seats are comfortable and the cabin is well-designed and laid out. The handling itself is light and quite responsive.
Standard equipment on the Mirage includes a USB connector and electric front windows while other models get air con and parking sensors. There's also electronic stability control and six airbags. Despite the size of the Mirage, the boot is a decent 235litres, which is larger than the car it replaces. The boot space will expand to 600litres with the rear seats folded flat.
