2014 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2014 Kia Rio

Upon first look, the Mitsubishi Mirage and Kia Rio appear to be rather similar vehicles. Both sets of headlamps seem to stretch up the length of the hood, and fog lights adorn the inlets to the left and right of the lower grille. Luckily for local drivers looking to compare the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2014 Kia Rio, the available data reaches well beyond headlamp style and fascia design. In fact, any Kia owners asked to drive the Mirage for a week would be quick to report just how different the Rio and Mitsubishi’s hatchback truly are.

The table above begins to describe some of the differences the objective driver would recognize. While transmission differences would be negligible at best, practical vehicle ownership qualities clearly favor the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage. With respect to cost, fuel efficiency and hatch cargo volume, Mirage delivers everything that city drivers ultimately value, particularly Chicago-area motorists near Continental Mitsubishi.

2014 Mitsubishi Mirage Orland Park

Consider again the situation in which a Rio owner replaces his or her daily driver with a 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage. In addition to the disappointment of realizing they overpaid for a 5-door subcompact, the Rio owner will quickly recognize how much more practically valuable a vehicle like Mitsubishi Mirage can be. Particularly in northeastern Illinois, driving the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage in Orland Park, Countryside, or Chicago is made all the more easy with Mitsubishi’s efficient use of fuel and space. Drivers behind the wheel of the Mirage see less of the filling station and more out the rearview mirror with the additional cubic feet of storage volume underneath the vehicle’s hatch.

Local drivers researching the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage in Chicago are welcome to use Continental Mitsubishi’s comparison data to make the best vehicle choice for themselves and their families.
