The Mi­rage is sharp buy­ing at the mo­ment — $12,990 drive­away for a man­ual, $14,990 auto, which means about $3000 off the full rec­om­mended re­tail. Capped-price ser­vic­ing is among the cheap­est in the class ($250 for each an­nual visit over three years). Downside: capped pric­ing ex­pires af­ter four years even though the war­ranty lasts five. Metal­lic paint adds $495.

Ver­dict The Mi­rage isn’t as much fun to drive as the Mi­cra but the Mit­subishi’s higher safety rat­ing, five-year war­ranty, sharp price and low run­ning costs make it un­beat­able in this con­test.
