Mitsubishi Mirage vs Nissan Micra
Mitsubishi Mirage Vs Nissan Micra
The automotive industry is in a constant state of flux. Always changing, evolving into something greater than it was. New ideas and innovations are popping up every minute of every day, forcefully pushing beyond the ground work that was laid before it and revolutionizing the industry. Never more has this revolution been prevalent than in the car industry, specifically in the newly discovered sub-compact vehicle class. The Sub-compacts is a class focused on efficiency, on style, and on compatibility. A class that has positioned itself to be the new leader of industry. A class that, in a world increasingly more environmentally conscious, is savvy of the both the green in our environment and the green inside our wallets. Two of these vehicles, the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage in Edmonton and the 2015 Nissan Micra, stand out in a highly competitive class.
But, when two giants in the class stepped into the ring together, only one can come out the victor?
Let’s start the comparison by focusing on the exterior beauty of these two automobiles. Both vehicles are well suited for the class, which puts emphasis of packing in as much style, luxury, and power into the smallest body, all while creating an environment that screams comfort. The Mirage, which sports a slim and muscular build, like a featherweight prizefighter, has a sturdy frame that lends well to its handling and power while the Micra, which is a lankier vehicle in the sense that it is both taller and longer at the front end, has a formed shape like a Olympic gymnast, tough but flexible. Both vehicles are built to offer maximum visibility through the front and rear windshields, but going on a purely physical attributes, I give the edge to the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage.

Most fuel-efficient (non-hybrid)
When it comes to performance, these two are neck and neck. While the Micra has a slight increase in power, sporting 109HP compared to the Mirage’s 74HP, it is a negligible increase. You will hardly notice a difference in your drive. The Mirage handles like a dream, reigning in a tight 9.2m (metre) turning radius that allows you to zip around the sharpest of corners with ease. All the while, the Mirage boasts being the most fuel-efficient (non-hybrid) gas powered vehicle driving on Canadian roads.
When it comes to features, again it’s a close race between the two. While the Micra is more spacious than the Mirage, the Mirage has the benefit of being part of the Mitsubishi Motors Company and with that, their impeccable Roadside Assistance program, which is an award winning 24-hour support system for Mitsubishi costumers, focuses on functionality rather than flash, ensure that every single feature is there for a specific reason. So while the Micra may outclass the Mirage of in some aspects, it does not outclass it in functionality.

The sub-compact vehicle class is all about efficiency. You won’t find a better bang for your buck than with the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage, which is one of the most cost efficient cars not just in its class, but on Edmonton roads today. It includes a more comprehensive and longer Mitsubishi Warranty package than its competitors. Overall, if you’re looking for something to lighten to weight of your wallet, while having a vehicle that is safe and fun to drive, the Mirage is the way to go.
Both of these vehicles stand tall in a sea of already competitive vehicles. Both offer an equal level of performance, features, and efficiency. When it comes down to it, with two vehicles that are so close in comparison, it comes down to pure preference and cost. The Mirage has a very distinct look and comes at a cost lower than its competitors. For those reason, the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is the clear winner.
