2020 Mitsubishi Mirage Trim Options Offer Plenty for the Price

The 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage is available brand new at borderline bargain basement prices, being one of the most affordable new cars on the market. The Mirage keeps things pretty basic, offering drivers exactly what they are looking for with not much else in the way of bells and whistles. These more simple options keep things basic in a way that some drivers genuinely prefer, and you certainly won’t feel guilty racking up the mileage on the odometer. They are inexpensive to purchase, maintain, and even fix in case something breaks, and among the trim level options, the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage offers plenty.

The base model 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

It doesn’t get much cheaper than the base model 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage ES, which comes with a shockingly low MSRP of just $17,730. The small engine doesn’t offer much of an exhilarating driving experience, but for a daily driver and commuter sedan that isn’t always a priority. As a subcompact car it’s rather small overall, both inside and out, and you won’t be particularly impressed with the interior space or cargo capacity, but it is more than enough for the average driver to get groceries or travel with gym bags or other luggage.

According to Edmunds, the base model offers the bare minimum of what you would expect from a brand new car these days. Bluetooth connectivity allows drivers to enjoy the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with ease and, of course, a rearview camera which is now standard by mandate on all new vehicles. One highlight includes the keyless entry, which gives the car a more modern touch over previous used models.

Step it up to the mid-level trim, the LE

The 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage LE is the middle tier among the three options, offering just a bit more luxury and features than the base model without being overly impressive. It comes at a small price bump with an MSRP of $18,930, which is still relatively inexpensive compared to many other new cars.

With the Mirage LE, drivers get the addition of heated front seats, and although it downsizes the touchscreen infotainment system to 6.5-inches, it comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to make up for the difference.

The 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage SE

The top trim level for the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage is the SE, which comes at an MSRP of $19,115 hovering just under the big $20k. It comes with all of the standard safety features of the base model, combined with everything that the mid-tier level LE has to offer, but adds in proximity entry as well as fog lights for an added bonus.

Other than that, there isn’t much more to the to trim level, which can be disappointing to some buyers, who are less interested in the additional features that it comes with.
