The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is the sedan variant of the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback. Introduced for 2017, this little sedan distinguishes itself by offering affordable pricing, decent value and ample connectivity.
Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Overview
The Mirage G4's sheet metal is marked by styling that is youthful, upbeat and curvaceous. Its front fascia features cheerfully slanted halogen headlights and a front grille plated with dark chrome. The sedan's profile is snub-nosed with a bluntly abbreviated trunk, and a character line that spans both wheel wells. From the back, the Mirage G4 features a sloping rear windshield and a deep, squared-off rear fascia. Both front and rear bumpers are color keyed, as are its door handles and folding side mirrors.
Within its cabin, the Mirage G4 provides seating for five. Keyless entry is standard, and the cabin's shift panel, center panel and switch panel are black and high gloss. Cargo capacity comes in at 12.3 cubic feet.
Mitsubishi's Mirage G4 offers a list of options that is impressive when you consider its modest price tag. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility are available, along with push-button start, Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, cruise control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. You may also upgrade your Mirage G4 with alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, automatic climate control and heated front seats.
The front-wheel-drive Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is motivated by a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine providing 78 horsepower. Two transmissions are available: a five-speed manual transmission and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). An excellent turning radius makes the Mirage G4 an agreeable companion for city living.
When it comes to safety, all Mirage G4 sedans provide an advanced air bag system that includes a driver's-side knee air bag, dual-stage front air bags with occupant seat position sensors, side-impact air bags and front and rear curtain side airbags. A tire pressure monitoring system is standard, along with hill-start assist, stability control and an antilock brake system.
The subcompact segment is large and thriving, and the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 faces competition from quite a few notable rivals. If you're considering this sedan, it should be cross-shopped with the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Kia Rio, Nissan Versa, Hyundai Accent, Honda Fit and Toyota Prius c. Other choices to consider in this segment include the Mini Cooper, Fiat 500, Volkswagen Beetle and Chevrolet Spark.
