2017 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. 2017 Chevy Spark at Mike Miller Mitsubishi

After taking a year off for a comprehensive overhaul, the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is perhaps the most anticipated Mitsubishi model in this year’s lineup. Already a standout pick in the subcompact hatchback segment for its outstanding fuel efficiency and top-value sticker price, the Mitsubishi Mirage adds numerous grade-A cabin materials, more horsepower, and exterior enhancements including new taillights, headlights, and bumpers. All of these things, plus an excellent warranty, make the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage a better choice than a competing vehicle like the 2017 Chevy Spark. Let’s talk further at Mike Miller Mitsubishi, a well-rated Mitsubishi dealer serving Pekin, IL and Morton, IL.

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage

The five-passenger 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage, which in addition to the aforementioned enhancements also gets a new steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, larger brakes, and a new suspension tuning, comes in three trims. The entry-level 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage ES is the only holdover from last year, and it features a standard rear spoiler and LED taillights. The new midrange 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage SE adds a 6.5-inch touchscreen and automatic climate control, and the equally new, top-line 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage GT offers heated front seats and 15-inch alloy wheels. All three trims boast an energetic engine that uses either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Fuel economy is terrific with either gearbox, and the CVT leads the way at 43MPG hwy/37MPG city – borderline hybrid vehicle numbers. The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is also a safe car, as attested by its four out of five-star score in government crash testing.

2017 Chevrolet Spark

The 2017 Chevrolet Spark is unchanged this year, carrying over the same three trims from 2016. Its four-passenger capacity makes it less roomy than the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage. The 2017 Chevy Spark model’s three-trim family is equipped similar to the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage model’s corresponding three trims, with both models earning high marks on the technology side. Under its hood, the 2017 Chevy Spark employs a slightly larger engine than the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage, but at the expense of fuel efficiency. Whereas a 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage equipped with a CVT can achieve 43MPG city/37MPG hwy, the same transmission on a 2017 Chevy Spark only reaches 41MPG hwy, and a much lower 31MPG city. A similar result is found when comparing these models when a five-speed manual transmission is equipped. The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is capable of 41MPG hwy/33MPG city, with the 2017 Chevy Spark topping out at 41MPG hwy / 30MPG city.
