The 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is now available in an exclusive Black Edition trim – complete with stunning standard 15″ black alloy wheels, a black roof spoiler, and black side-mirror caps. Vibrant red grille accents and a leather steering wheel with red stitching give it an even more sophisticated look. The Mirage G4’s class-leading fuel economy lets you spend more time driving and less time pumping. With CVT you get an impressive 35 mpg in the city, 41 on the highway, and 37 combined mpg so you can keep moving.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

All 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 come with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that generates a modest 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque. That’s less muscle than you’ll get with rivals such as the Chevy Spark (98 horsepower). The Mirage’s base model comes with a five-speed manual transmission, but all other trims are equipped with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Power is sent to the front wheels. When driven on city streets and highways, the Mirage exhibits lackluster acceleration. Heavy throttle inputs are required for passing maneuvers on the freeway, and the engine gets raucous when pushed. Also, there’s a lot of engine vibration within the cabin.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

According to the EPA, the 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 achieves a fuel economy of 36 mpg city and 43 mpg highway with the optional CVT. These numbers are extremely impressive, and they make the Mirage a more fuel-efficient choice than the Spark (up to 30/38 mpg). With the manual transmission, the Mirage’s fuel economy dips to 33/41 mpg. For more information about the Mirage’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

There are quite a few budget-priced subcompacts that offer reasonably upscale cabins, but the Mirage isn’t one of them. Although the design is rudimentary and there are lots of hard plastics in evidence, the car’s interior is pleasant enough given its price range. The front row offers comfortable accommodations, but the rear-seat legroom is tight. There’s a generous amount of cargo capacity on board.

With all seats in place, the Mirage provides 17 cubic feet of cargo space. With the standard 60/40-split folding rear seats lowered, cargo space expands to 47 cubic feet. These figures make the Mirage a roomier choice than the Spark, which provides 11 cubic feet of cargo space behind its second row and 27 cubic feet behind the first.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Bluetooth connectivity is standard on the Mirage, and this allows for hands-free phone calls. A four-speaker audio system, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are all standards. For those seeking a more premium setup, a Rockford Fosgate sound system is offered as an upgrade.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 comes standard with automated emergency braking, and the top-spec SE comes with lane-departure warning and automatic high-beam headlamps, but more advanced driver-assistance features are missing from the options list. For more information about the Mirage’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites.
