The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage vs. the 2014 Mazda2

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is an ideal choice for drivers who want a fun and fuel efficient vehicle with an accessible sticker price. The newest Mirage subcompact recently arrived here at Lovering Mitsubishi, and it has already proved popular with our customers. Find out why the Mirage offers more than similar cars like the 2014 Mazda2, and then visit us at the dealership to take a test drive.


The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage has a starting price of just $12,995. In comparison, the similarly sized Mazda2 has an MSRP of $14,720. That is a difference of almost $2,000. If affordability is your priority, the Mirage is already a winner.

Fuel Economy

In your new 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage, you will be able to get 42 mpg (miles per gallon) on the highway and 34 mpg in the city, both numbers that are impressive even for a smaller car. In the Mazda2, by contrast, you will only be able to get 35 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city. You can find midsize sedans with better fuel economy. In the long run, the Mazda2 is going to cost you even more money.

Cargo Space

The Mirage makes ingenious use of the space it offers to give you surprising amounts of cargo capacity. Dedicated cargo capacity starts at 17 cubic feet; with the rear seats folded down, cargo capacity jumps all the way to 47 cubic feet. If you were driving a Mazda2, you would only start with 13 cubic feet of space to work with, and it would top out at 27.8 cubic feet.


Drivers who purchase a 2015 Mirage receive a whole vehicle warranty from Mitsubishi that lasts for 60 months or 60,000 miles. The warranty offered by Mazda only lasts for 36 months or 36,000 miles. Again, the Mitsubishi Mirage helps you cut down on driving costs.

Put the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage to the Test

As you can see, the newest Mirage easily beats out the Mazda2. Visit Lovering Mitsubishi to explore the Mirage further. Contact our sales team seven days a week if you have any questions or would like to schedule a test drive in advance.
