The New 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback & Mirage G4 Sedan

The New 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback & Mirage G4 Sedan
For the value-minded shoppers of Johnstown and Greensburg, it's hard to beat a subcompact car. Offering the latest in modern amenities on a tiny footprint, with a low bottom line and excellent fuel economy, they are a smart buy. While they may not have the passenger or cargo space that larger vehicles have, they also don't have the higher monthly payments. Amongst subcompact cars, few present quite the value that the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback and the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 sedan do.

While the 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine under the hood won't ever be mistaken for a powerhouse, it handles itself well, particularly when paired with the five-speed manual transmission that is standard. The engine capitalizes on the gearing, and it takes to the back roads of Portage just fine.

Where the small engine shines is when it comes to fuel economy. Paired with the manual, it gets 33 MPG around town and 41 MPG on the highway. Upgrading to the optional continuously variable transmission (CVT) also upgrades the economy, to 37 MPG city and 43 MPG highway. That means that, even if you commute from Indiana to DuBois and back every day for work, you'll still use less than 3 gallons per day to make the round trip. That's less time at gas stations, and less money on your monthly gas budget.

Small Footprint, Big Capabilities
With the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage measuring only 149.4 inches long, and the Mirage G4 coming in at 169.5 inches, it won't be hard to squeeze into parallel parking spots in Greensburg. With a turning circle of 30.2 feet for the Mirage and 31.5 feet for the Mirage G4, you might even be able to avoid having to make three-point turns to turn around and get that spot too.

Despite the small stature, there's plenty of room inside both. Front-seat measurements are identical - with 39.1 inches of head room and 41.7 inches of leg room, a full-sized adult will have no trouble fitting. In the rear seat, the Mirage provides 37.3 inches of head room and 34 inches of legroom, while in the G4, head room drops slightly to 36.9 inches while leg room increases to 37.2 inches. Considering the Mirage's designation as a subcompact, that's pretty impressive - it's enough room for adults on short trips, or for teens and children on longer trips. By comparison, the rear seat in the Nissan Altima, which is considered a midsize sedan, offers only 36.1 inches of leg room.

With 12.3 cubic feet of cargo space, the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is perfect for running small errands around Johnstown. That's enough for a few gym bags, plenty of groceries, even a few bags of golf clubs. If you find yourself needing to haul more, the hatchback Mirage offers a lower load-in, while dropping the rear seats provides up to 47 cubic feet of cargo space, plenty of room for toting all the gear needed for a college student, including a television, computer, microwave, and all their clothing.
Connectivity and Convenience
It used to be that features such as smartphone mirroring and touch-screen displays were reserved for luxury cars. Not anymore.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 offer touch-screen audio standard on all models, along with Bluetooth wireless technology for phone and streaming audio. Features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are also available on most trims, while USB ports provide charging capabilities for your devices. Many models also feature voice recognition systems. It's a far cry from what "budget-friendly" used to mean.
Trim Levels
Three trim packages are offered on the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage family, making it easy for you to check out all trims at the same time here at Colonial Motor Mart.

The Mirage ES is the base trim, and is identical on the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4. The cloth-covered interior features a four-way manually-adjustable driver's seat and passenger seat, air conditioning, and a seven-inch touch-screen panel display audio system. A rearview camera is also standard. Remote keyless entry with panic button provides faster, easier access. While the hatchback Mirage does not have any available packages, the Mirage G4 can add cruise control, 15-inch dark chrome alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with stereo controls, and the 6.5-inch display screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. 

Upgrading to the Mirage SE trim level standardizes these package options in both the Mirage and Mirage G4. The driver's seat is upgraded to 6-way adjustability, and a leather-wrapped shift knob is added to the interior. Gloss black accents add a touch of luxury, as do chrome-plated front inner door handles. The air conditioning is upgraded to automatic climate control. FAST-Key passive entry system with push button start and panic feature makes getting in and getting going that much easier. Remote engine start is offered as a stand-alone feature, allowing you to get your vehicle warmed up in the cold Johnstown winters.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage GT is unique to the hatchback model, featuring everything offered on the SE trim along with a few extras. High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights light the roads of DuBois and Portage, helping you navigate and avoid deer and other wildlife.

A number of packages and stand-alone options are offered on all trim levels. Upgrade your audio experience with the Rockford Fosgate Package, available on every trim level, which includes an amplifier and subwoofers. Rear park assist sensors make parallel parking and backing out in busy Indiana parking lots easier and safer. Side sill extensions, color-keyed body side molding, and an exhaust finisher can all be added to dress up your Mirage and make it your own.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 offer a lot of options for a customized experience, all at a budget-friendly price. It's a combination that's hard to beat. Here at Colonial Motor Mart in Indiana, we carry the largest selection of Mirage and Mirage G4 models in the Greensburg, Portage, and Johnstown region.
