One of the best parts about having a small car is saving money at the gas pump. Smaller cars mean smaller engines, and smaller engines generally mean less thirsty gas tanks. It’s a big selling point for the segment, and any car hoping to be a contender in the subcompact class needs to have stellar gas mileage.
While the Fiesta isn’t exactly inefficient, the Mirage consistently trounces the Ford when it comes to fuel efficiency on city streets and highways. The Mirage’s fuel economy beats the Ford Fiesta in both the city and the highway, as well as with a combined rate. It may not seem like a lot at first, but those dollars and cents add up to a lot over time, especially when commuting to and from work in your subcompact every day. When the name of the game is unparalleled efficiency, Mitsubishi comes out on top.
At the end of the day, it’s the driving experience and behind-the-wheel feel that will make one particular car feel ‘right.’ For our money, the Mitsubishi Mirage stands head and shoulders above the Ford Fiesta, but you don’t need to take our word for it. Stop by West Side Mitsubishi, the premier Edmonton, AB Mitsubishi dealership, and take the Mirage for a test drive today.
