2022 Mitsubishi Mirage
Base MSRP: $14,645
Not only one of the most affordable new cars in America, Mitsubishi’s entry subcompact Mirage is also the new car with the least power — a mere 78 horsepower emanates from its 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine. Although power output is low, the Mirage delivers excellent fuel economy with an EPA-rated 36 mpg city / 43 mpg highway. For 2021 the Mirage received fresh exterior styling as well as a range of new features. Standard equipment on the base-level Mirage ES includes automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, a 7-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a rearview camera, and an AM/FM audio system with four speakers. Forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection is also standard equipment on every Mirage.
