The ever-popular subcompact car segment has two main stars: the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage and the 2019 Chevrolet Spark. So how these two space conscious cars stack-up against each other?
The Mitsubishi Mirage is better than the Spark when it comes to gas mileage. After all, the Mirage is considered the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid car in America. The Mirage gets an EPA-estimated fuel-efficiency rating of 36 mpg in the city and 43 mpg on the highway, while the Spark only gets 29 mpg and 38 mpg respectively.
Though these vehicles are both tiny, they still offer a decent amount of space. The Mirage comes out on top though, providing 47 cubic feet of maximum cargo space compared to the Spark’s 27.2 cubic feet. With the Mirage, you can carry all of your cargo in one trip, saving gas and time.
Mitsubishi is famous for its long-lasting warranties, which extend to the Mirage. The powertrain warranty lasts for a grand total of 10 years or 100,000 miles at no extra cost, and the anti-corrosion warranty goes for 7 years/100,000 miles. The Spark only receives around half the coverage of the Mirage’s powertrain warranty with 5 years/60,000 miles, and the corrosion only lasts for six years at the most. Both cars include a five year roadside assistance warranty, but the Spark has a mileage limit while you can get roadside assistance for your Mirage regardless of the mileage.
The gap between the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage and the 2019 Chevrolet Spark is unmistakable. The Mirage beats the Spark in both fuel efficiency and use of space, which are the two big qualities of subcompact vehicles.
