The Mirage is powered by a 78-hp 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine, which can be paired to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a Continuously Variable Transmission. The Mirage is a hatchback with 3 trim levels; ES, SE, and GT. This powerteam boasts a whopping combined 36-mpg fuel economy with the manual transmission, and an even better 39-mpg with the CVT. A budget car doesn't always mean barebones features; the car is standard with 140-watt sound system and power front windows. Safety features include 7 airbags, hill start assist and daytime running lamps. There is an optional display audio system with smartphone mirroring, rearview camera, and heated seats and mirrors.
The Mirage received a redesign for 2017.
