The Study

The study that discovered this information was conducted by Growella. It is a destination website that analyzes all things related to lifestyle, career, and money and offers advice. The “100 Most Affordable Cars to Lease” study, as it was termed, found that the Mirage had an average auto insurance cost of $35 and monthly gas costs as low as $79**. The overall affordability of the Mitsubishi Mirage can also be attributed to its low starting MSRP, but its great fuel economy is also factored in.

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

The IHS Model Loyalty Award for the Non-Luxury Traditional Sub-Compact segment was given to the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage for the second year in a row.

IHS Automotive makes a list each year the vehicles that have the highest model loyalty, which is determined by number of households that purchase or lease a second vehicle of the same model. Once again, the Mitsubishi Mirage has been one vehicle that brings its customers back for more.

The award highlights the affordability and desirable features of the Mirage, which has been called the most affordable car to drive on the market thanks to its combination of low price, high fuel economy, and exceptional powertrain warranty. As Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America, said, the Mirage is “one of the true hidden gems in the automotive industry.”  We would have to agree here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi!

The Mirage will be updated in 2017 to include more features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and will remain one of the most affordable cars on the market. The announcement of the new Mirage came soon after reports of a 30% increase in sales from 2014 to 2015.  We look forward to seeing what else the Mirage will bring to the table in future generations!

As smartphones become increasingly important to our daily lives, choosing a vehicle sometimes means having to switch from your preferred platform. Other times it means passing on a vehicle that you really love. With the new 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage changes, you won’t have to do either!

As if the car wasn’t already versatile enough, it was just announced that the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage will feature both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto.  These features and much more will make the affordable small sedan more luxurious than ever before!

Both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto offer fantastic capability. Android Auto features a well-organized interface that allows for intuitive interaction. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users that same super easy-to-use display they are used to.

The changes on the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage go way beyond the addition of Apple CarPlay. In particular, the Mirage is better looking than ever with the introduction of a new hood, grille and lighting system. There’s also an option for a Rockford-Fosgate audio system and no matter whether you’re an Apple or an Android person, the music coming through those speakers is going to sound amazing!

As we wait for the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage, stop by Don Robinson Mitsubishi today to see some of our other 2016 Mitsubishi models!

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage

The Mitsubishi Mirage has been an overwhelming success in the United States since its 2014 model, and the follow-up 2015 Mirage continued that trend. However, fans may have noticed that Mitsubishi seemed to be holding off on a 2016 model, making many believe that the Japanese carmaker has halted Mirage production—but think again.

It turns out that Mitsubishi has decided to skip the 2016 Mirage, because they are skipping straight to the 2017 model year. And you can bet that the next Mirage to hit dealerships will be the best yet.

Little information is known about the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage, besides that it’s slated to hit dealerships early next spring. Now that Mitsubishi has made their big announcement in skipping the 2016 model, perhaps more information is on the way.

We would have to guess that the 2017 Mirage will have some pretty big cosmetic changes, and like its predecessor – the 2015 Mirage – it will probably be one of the most fuel-efficient, non-hybrid, and non-electric vehicles on the market.  We at Don Robinson Mitsubishi can’t wait to see what improvements will be made on this already great vehicle!  Share with us your speculations about the upcoming 2017 model in the comments below!

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

Mitsubishi Mirage owners are more likely than owners of any other vehicle (in its segment) to return to the Mitsubishi brand when they are ready for a new car. Mitsubishi has been awarded IHS Automotive’s Model Loyalty Awards, earning the title of “highest Model Loyalty in the Non-Luxury Traditional Sub-Compact Car Segment for the 2014 model year.”

The HIS Automotive Loyalty Awards are presented annually to automakers, based on actual consumer transactions. The awards recognize automakers for standing out in their segments for their ability to retain repeat customers over multiple buying cycles.

“We are delighted to receive this Model Loyalty recognition by IHS Automotive,” said Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President of MMNA in a statement. He goes on to say “Mitsubishi Motors has experienced growing customer loyalty across our entire model lineup through the years, and this award demonstrates that we are successfully retaining our current customers while simultaneously introducing new consumers to the brand.”

It’s no wonder Mitsubishi Mirage model loyalty is through the roof. The Mirage offers excellent fuel economy (37 mpg city and 44 mpg highway), an overall vehicle safety score of 4-Stars awarded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an array of features, and a starting price of just $12,995.

2015 Mitsubishi MirageBuying a new car can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. You can always buy a car with a small price tag.  Add fantastic fuel efficiency on top of it and it will make the overall purchase even better. If these two criteria are your top priority, then the Mitsubishi Mirage is the car for you.

KBB.com recently included the Mirage in its list of the “10 Most Fuel-Efficient Cars Under $25,000.” Not only is the Mirage the only non-EV/non-hybrid on the list, but it is the least expensive one, too, with a starting price of only $12,995.

As for fuel-efficiency, the Mirage has an EPA-estimated combined rating of 40 mpg.

“The Mirage continues to be an important vehicle for the Mitsubishi brand,” said Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President, MMNA, in a statement. He continues to say that, “with its affordable price, incredible fuel economy and surprising list of available features, the Mirage is a great value that people recognize – February 2015 was the vehicle’s best-ever sales month since its launch in 2013.”

Making the Mirage even better is the fact that buyers love it. It currently has a rating 9.3 out of 10 on KBB.com’s consumer ratings. Not many new cars can get a rating higher than that.

EcoGreen CarWith an impressive EPA-estimated mileage of 40 mpg combined, the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage was named one of the “Greenest Vehicles” of the year by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE).

The Mirage is powered by a 1.2-liter engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission. It is the only traditional gasoline-powered vehicle on the list, but it is clear to see that its engineering is anything but run-of-the-mill. The hatchback provides impressive efficiency even among competing models using alternative fuels. This provides customers with the familiarity that comes with gasoline power while providing efficient travel and peace of mind in knowing the vehicle is environmentally friendly, even more so than some of the hybrid and electric vehicles on the list.

“We are pleased to see our 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage named to the ACEEE’s ‘Greenest Vehicles’ list, and we look forward to launching more new innovative and affordably-priced environmentally-friendly vehicles in the future,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president for Mitsubishi Motors North America.

Furthermore, “with its low price, plentiful features, exceptional fuel economy and extensive warranty, the Mitsubishi Mirage offers automotive consumers an unprecedented new-car value.”

The Mitsubishi Mirage is compact and affordable, and now, as a top performer in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests, it is incredibly safe.

2015 Mitsubishi MirageThe Federal New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash-test results are out, and the ratings for the 2015 Mirage are impressive. The Mirage earned four-stars in all frontal crash subcategories and five stars in all side-crash testing. Also included is a five-star rating in the side pole test, which simulates a side impact with a tree, utility pole, or other narrow object at 20 mph.

When it comes to the subcompact car segment, very few cars are considered top performers in safety tests.  The Mitsubishi Mirage’s safety scores prove that small cars do not have to sacrifice safety.

Because the Mirage is a budget-friendly car that does not sacrifice safety, style or fuel economy, it’s the ideal car for your teen driver, for your daily commute, or for road trips on the weekend. Stop by Don Robinson Mitsubishi today to see the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage for yourself and even test drive one today!

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

The Mitsubishi Mirage is part of a very specific—and relatively unknown—segment: the minicar segment. These cars, which basically look like a miniaturized combination of a hatchback and a crossover, boast great value at a small price. The Mirage, which is only in its second year on the market, has that in spades—and now it boasts the safety record of one of the safest small cars available today.

The Mitsubishi Mirage has great results from both the IIHS and NHTSA testing regimens as a 2015 model. From the IIHS, it earned top ratings of “good” on almost all tests—excluding the small overlap test, on which many small cars perform poorly. On the NHTSA tests, the car earned four-star and five-star ratings on every test, on both side and front crash tests.

This added safety makes the Mirage one of the most interesting new models on the roads today, as that safety is tacked on top of great value, efficiency, and style. The Mirage gets a combined 40 mpg, a ridiculously great number that looks even more enticing today thanks to falling gas prices. To learn more about this safe, stylish, and efficient little minicar, come see us at Don Robinson Mitsubishi today.
