If you are looking for an affordable compact car, then you are probably going to find yourself debating whether you should opt for the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage or the Ford Fiesta. While both are good options for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a small fortune, the Mirage has the advantage when it comes to its interior design, exterior features, and fuel efficiency.

Interior

On the inside, the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage looks extremely straightforward. There are plenty of physical controls that take a lot of the guesswork out of the vehicle’s technological aspect. The Fiesta is also relatively easy to use, but the infotainment interface does have a tendency to look slightly dated. Overall, both vehicles are surprisingly spacious. However, the Mirage manages to look a little bit more upscale than the Fiesta and has seats that are a bit more well-bolstered than those in the Fiesta.

Exterior Features

The exterior of the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is also nothing to scoff at. The Mirage comes in three straightforward trim levels that still leave room for customization. The base ES sits atop 14-inch wheels and has all the basic necessities you could want. The mid-level SE offers alloy wheels and keyless ignition while the GT upgrades you to 15-inch alloy wheels and xenon headlights. The Fiesta also has three trim levels, as well as a hatchback option. The biggest drawback to the Fiesta’s exterior design is its small doors. They do not open out very far, so you will have some additional difficulty getting into an already small space.

Fuel Efficiency

Of course, fuel efficiency is what many drivers are looking to find in a newer vehicle. The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage does not disappoint. On the Mirage’s 1.2-L 3-cylinder engine with an automatic transmission, you can get a maximum of 39 mpg combined. Unfortunately, the Fiesta trails behind with a max combined mpg of 31. What the Fiesta tries to make up for in power, it lacks in fuel economy.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is a nimble, chic, and ultimately fuel efficient subcompact that is able to get around town without a problem.
