When it comes to five-door hatchbacks the Toyota Yaris and Mitsubishi Mirage are two to be compared. Both are at close comparisons in most categories, and it can be hard to determine which one is best for you. Here we will discuss the pros and cons of each vehicle to help you decide which one stands out more.
2017 Toyota Yaris vs Mirage Interior
The Toyota is made of higher-quality plastics than the Mitsubishi when it comes to the inside. Not only this, but it has a lot of different storage areas throughout that make it convenient. The Mirage seems to be made of cheaper plastics followed by a design that seems to take us back about 20 years ago.
2017 Yaris vs The 2017 Mirage Fuel Economy
The Mitsubishi has a combined mpg of 39*, which is the highest number in fuel economy for a non-hybrid vehicle. This is great, but in return it only gives off about 78 horsepower. It is great for running around a downtown area, but on the highway it seems to exhaust very quickly. The Yaris gives off 106 horsepower with its 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. The fuel economy is great for its size at 33 mpg*.
2017 Yaris vs 2017 Mirage Safety
The Yaris seems to take a big step forward when it comes to safety. It has a lot more advanced systems when compared to the Mirage. The Yaris comes with lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and automatic high beams. The Mirage doesn’t include any of those features in any trim.
