2012 Mitsubishi Mirage GLX 1.2 from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

Buy it

Faults:

Started making a sharp noise if starting and shutting down the engine frequently. The dealer fixed this at no cost to us; think this is a known issue.

General Comments:

Very fuel economical; my personal average is about 7L/100km on urban roads and 5L/100km on rural roads.

The seats are very comfy, and interior space is a lot bigger than you think; pretty amazing for a micro car like this.

The boot is 260L, which is about the same as a Corolla hatchback.

Power wise, it's sufficient; definitely not powerful, but it's enough to get around town and going on motorways. Overtaking can be a bit slow.

Handling is not very good; can't take a sharp corner at speed.

Overall very happy with the car; it's priced very well for what it is designed for. If you are after performance and good handling, look for something else.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
