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.
