2014 Mitsubishi Mirage vs 2014 Chevy Spark

Subcompact vehicles continue to pick up momentum as fuel efficiency becomes more important to not only consumers in general, but the country as a whole. That’s why the addition of the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage to the segment made so much noise. When you look at a head-to-head comparison of the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage vs 2014 Chevy Spark, it’s easy to see why the Mirage is expected to pick up some market share in the segment.

The Mirage has better fuel economy than the Spark, coming in at an impressive 44 mpg in highway fuel economy. It also leads in maximum cargo capacity and interior volume, making it the roomier choice of the two. The Spark does have a marginally better horsepower figure, but city drivers probably won’t notice the difference between the 84 horsepower on the Spark and the 74 horsepower on the Mirage. It’s pretty clear that Mitsubishi brought its “A game” with the new Mirage.

The desire for more space is one of the biggest hang-ups consumers have with the subcompact segment. But the new Mitsubishi Mirage is looking to make that concern go away. When the Mirage goes against a strong competitor like the Chevy Spark, it comes out on top in the areas of cargo capacity and interior volume easily.

Safety also comes standard on the new 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage. There are seven standard airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag. Again, one of the chief concerns about the subcompact segment is handled by the new Mitsubishi Mirage. Competitors beware, the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage is set to carve out its own slice of the segment.

Best of all, it’s not a mirage, but the real thing. See the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage in Orland Park, IL today at Continental Mitsubishi.
