2017 Mitsubishi Mirage vs 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4

For years now, the Mirage has been a staple of the Mitsubishi lineup, and due to its astounding success, the automaker made the decision to expand on the capable offering. Just last year, Mitsubishi introduced the Mirage G4 to the U.S. market, and ever since, there have been many wondering what the differences between the two are. Seeing as we are well-versed in both the Mirage and Mirage G4, we thought it would be beneficial to look at the two side by side to help you decide which Mirage variation is best for you.

Seeing as they are both a part of the Mirage family, their capabilities are actually fairly similar, and as you can see from the table below, their prices are not far off. The biggest difference between the models is that the Mirage is a five-door hatchback, whereas the Mirage G4 is a more traditional four-door sedan. Though both offer seats for five passengers, their body styles each offer something unique. To give you a better idea of what the Mirage and its G4 variation have to offer, let’s look a bit closer at the two models.

Difference Between the Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4

You’ll notice right away that the Mirage comes in with a lower price, as well as a higher highway fuel economy rating. This can be attributed to its smaller, more compact size. As there isn’t any real separation between the trunk and the back seat, the hatchback Mirage isn’t quite as long. With less mass, it also has the ability to travel just a bit further than the G4. Keep in mind, however, that the one mile-per-gallon difference between the two really isn’t much. It ultimately comes down to whether you prefer a hatchback or a sedan. Regardless of the one you choose, you’ll get access to Apple CarPlay, which makes pairing your iPhone to your Mitsubishi easier than ever before. It’s just one of the many benefits of the Mirage models.
