Buying a hybrid can be a great way to save money on fuel. Unfortunately, buying a hybrid can also be very expensive. If you are looking for a way to maximize your fuel dollars without spending a fortune, consider the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage. It is officially the most fuel efficient, gasoline-powered vehicle in the country.
The Mirage is powered by a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine paired with either a five-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). With the CVT, the Mirage returns an EPA-estimated 36 mpg in the city and 43 mpg on the highway, making it the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid vehicle sold in America today.* With the manual, it’s still incredibly efficient, returning 33 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway, and 36 mpg combined.*
The Mirage has an affordable starting price with an MSRP of $13,795. Its excellent fuel economy helps you save even more. According to the EPA, the Mirage will cost the average driver about $900 a year in fuel costs. That is nearly $2,000 less over a five-year period than the average new car.
Even with its frugal nature, the Mirage comes well-equipped. The base trim comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen, full power accessories, air conditioning, cruise control, 60/40-split folding rear seats, Bluetooth® connectivity, a rearview camera, steering wheel audio controls, and a USB port.
Features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, a Rockford Fosgate® sound system, heated seats, automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and keyless ignition are available on higher trim levels.
If you do not want to drive a hatchback, you can also consider the Mirage G4 sedan. It is nearly as efficient as the Mirage hatchback and returns an EPA-estimated 41 mpg on the highway with its CVT.*
Another money-saving measure for the Mirage is the excellent warranty coverage. Both come with a 10-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
