Fuel Efficient & Roomy 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage GT

Spacious subcompact car

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage GT

Disclosure: I was provided a 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage GT subcompact vehicle to test drive and review for a week. All opinions expressed are my own and were not influenced by Mitsubishi.

Recently I was provided with a unique opportunity to review the 2017 Mitsubishi  Mirage GT.  Why do I say this was unique?  First, you have to understand that I have always driven sedan sized cars.  With a family and a busy lifestyle, I have to have a vehicle that can take me and my family wherever we need to go.  Right now I am sporting a mini van.  When I was presented with the opportunity to check out a subcompact vehicle, I was a little nervous in doing so.  I looked at the pictures of the vehicle while I waited for my turn to check it out, and I found myself thinking, “How am I going to do this?  It’s so small!”  But readers, I am so happy to tell you that I actually fell in love with this car and was sad the day it was picked up!  Seriously!

If you think subcompact vehicles aren’t worth the money or that they aren’t roomy enough, I am here to dispel that rumor! Here are my top 5 reasons why this would make a perfect car for not just first-time drivers or even empty nesters, this is one car that can satisfy a variety of people. 


From first glance, this beautiful wine red subcompact car may look small to you.  I mean really small.  I thought that as well.  But once you get inside, you discover the room that is available.  This car can definitely seat four people, maybe even five.  We even put it to the test to see if our car seat would fit.  As you can see for yourself, it fits in perfectly with room to spare.

One of the great things about this vehicle is that it is affordable.   Often times people find themselves in situations where they need a reliable and affordable car.  Truth is, that is hard to come by!  For what you pay, there are many great benefits.

  Fuel Efficient

Equipped with an automatic  economy setting, this 3-cylinder engine really has an impressive fuel economy.  In town, drivers get an estimated 37 mpg and 43 mpg on the freeway.

Small and Powerful

So here I am capitalizing on that word small again for the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback, but this time I am using it in a positive way.  Have you ever heard that expression “It turns on a dime?”  One of the biggest perks to having a subcompact vehicle is its ability to fit into tight or small spaces.  I don’t know about you, but I have found myself in situations where I need to find a parking spot but my car is just too big. I know this hatchback would have been PERFECT for me when I was attending Valdosta State University in my college years!  Working in the city or attending class, this vehicle easily fits into parallel sparking spaces or  tight spots.  As you can see from the image above, it does not take up much room at all.

 While this vehicle has a 3 cylinder engine, don’t be mistaken at how powerful the Mirage can be.  It allows drivers to zip in and out of traffic with ease.

Final Thoughts

The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage GT hatchback rides smooth and provides great gas mileage.  With plenty of room, this vehicle is perfect for the first time driver or the college bound student.  It is even great for empty nesters or small families that want something  economical and fun.

    My husband is a truck guy through and through (Well he's also a carpenter). If I could ever talk him into a car, this one is the type I'd want.

    I love the roomy trunk. Now that we are almost down to two kids in the house, a smaller car might be good.

    I just love the room this has, which you wouldn't realize from the outside. I think it is the perfect size for my husband and I. Right now we drive a Chevy Malibu and it always feels so big to me. Thank you for showing such great pics of the inside as well as the outside. I loved your review.

    Wow! The Mirage looks so different now. Loving the new look and features of the car! I remember my mom had a Mirage when I was in high school. It was a really good car and it lasted us for a few years. She was even able to pass it on to my sister when my sister started driving.
