2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

The 2015 Chevrolet Spark and the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage are both tiny city cars that offer big efficiency and serious versatility. They also don’t require a big bank balance to get behind the wheel, so they’re particularly appealing to new car buyers, young drivers, and anybody looking to add another small efficient car to the garage. So how do these two small cars really stack up? You can find out below!

Powertrain and Performance

Under the hood of both of these cars, you’ll find engines that displace a 1.2L engine—in the Spark it’s a four-cylinder, and in the Mirage it’s a three-cylinder. The Spark makes more power than the Mirage, and moves a lot quicker. The Mirage will take over 11 seconds to get to 60 mph—a time that’s slow even for this segment. The Spark moves quicker.

Warranty Coverage

Both cars come standard with a long warranty: 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage. That’s good for drivers who don’t want to have to worry about problems with their engine or transmission. The Spark offers two years of free maintenance, so you don’t have to pay for oil changes, tire rotations, or any other regularly scheduled service for two whole years. The Mirage offers nothing like that.

Technology

Every Spark comes standard with the industry standard OnStar telematics system and the new 4G LTE wireless connectivity with in-car WiFi hotspot. The Mirage does not have the option of any kind of telematics system or in-car WiFi. The Spark can also be had with the MyLink infotainment system with touchscreen interface. The Mitsubishi Mirage is lacking that option as well.

Price

Based on what you know so far, you would probably guess that the Spark is more expensive, but that’s not true. The Spark is actually $500 less than the Mirage at $12,270 MSRP. The Mitsubishi Mirage starts at $12,995 MSRP. The Spark is clearly a better value.
