2018 Mitsubishi Mirage vs 2018 Toyota Yaris
Serving Gainesville, Cumming, and Toccoa, GA
When students go off to college, they often drive there in an economical small car that’s easy to handle and gentle on the wallet. Two cars that fit this description are the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage and the 2018 Toyota Yaris. Both offer reliable transportation, no-frills value and practical space. If you test-drive both, we think you’ll prefer the Mirage for its comfortable ride, excellent transmission, superior warranty and cargo capacity.
Value is measured in many dimensions. One important measure of value is fuel economy. The spunky 1.2-liter I-3 engine in the 2018 Mirage in hatchback form provides 37 city/43 highway mpg* when equipped with a smooth automatic CVT. The best mileage delivered by the 4-cylinder, manual-transmission Yaris is 30/36 mpg*. Over the course of a year, that difference can mount up to a hefty savings.
Another dimension of value is the cost of repairs. Here, Mitsubishi leads the way with 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Toyota provides a powertrain warranty too, but it’s for only 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes sooner. In addition, the Mirage comes with a Roadside Assistance Program that runs for 5 years, versus 2 years for the Yaris. The Mirage also gives you a longer basic warranty and longer corrosion/rust-through coverage.
Whether purchased as a hatchback or a sedan, the Mitsubishi Mirage gives you an impressive amount of space for a subcompact vehicle. For example, the Mirage provides 86.2 cubic feet of passenger space vs 84.4 cubic feet for the Yaris. Mirage also beats Yaris in cargo space, 17.2 to 15.3 cubic feet. As an added perk, Mirage has more front and rear leg room.
