The Mitsubishi Mirage is one of the last ultra-affordable city cars you can buy in America. With an exceptionally low price tag, fantastic fuel economy, solid factory warranty, and an easy-to-live-with low-maintenance engine, the Mirage is a great investment for those drivers looking for cheap, reliable, new transportation.

However, the Mitsubishi Mirage isn’t just an economy hatchback. On the higher end, the Mitsubishi Mirage has many extra features that give it a good amount of style and comfort despite its low price. Are you looking to get behind the wheel of a new 2024 Mitsubishi Mirage? Here is everything you need to know about the Mirage and how much you can expect to pay for a fully loaded model.

The 2024 Mitsubishi Mirage ES entry-level model

The 2024 Mitsubishi Mirage ES is the base model Mirage, and despite the low price, the standard features of this base model Mirage might surprise you. For the Mitsubishi Mirage’s base MSRP of $16,695, you get a Mirage powered by a naturally aspirated 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine and a CVT automatic transmission. This tiny three-cylinder only produces an anemic 78 horsepower, but this tiny displacement means that the Mirage is a fuel economy powerhouse. According to Mitsubishi, the Mirage is good for 39 combined mpg.

On the inside, the Mirage ES is incredibly basic. A small 7-inch touch screen along with Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto are offered as standard equipment, as is automatic climate control, a single USB port, and Bluetooth audio. Regarding safety equipment, the Mirage is surprisingly well equipped with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera, and pedestrian detection, all offered as standard equipment. The Mirage ES also seats five passengers, which is surprising for its small size, though expect it to still be cramped inside.

The 2024 Mitsubishi Mirage SE takes the bare-bones Mirage ES model and adds comfort and style refinements all around to make this one of the most comfortable city cars you can find on the road today. Starting at $18,145 MSRP, the SE offers a solid amount of improvements for not much more of a price premium over the base model. The Mirage SE takes advantage of the base ES model’s powertrain and, in turn, its excellent fuel economy. 

Regarding features, the SE comes standard with LED headlights, heated front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and lane departure warning. Also included are automatic high-beam headlights, automatic windshield wipers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and upgraded alloy wheels.

Add-ons and accessories for the latest Mirage model

To get to this price, the 2024 Mitsubishi Mirage SE can be had with a $230 all-weather essentials package, a cabin refinement package with chrome interior accents for $360, a cargo essentials package with a cargo net for $250, center console illumination for $105, LED fog lights for $305, $160 front and rear mudguards, a $165 welcome package, a set of body side moldings for $160, a special edition carbon package for $410, and front and rear parking assist for $670.

With all of these options, a fully loaded Mitsubishi Mirage comes out to around $22,660 MSRP. Even though these options take the Mirage well over the $20,000 price point, it is pretty incredible that in 2023, you can still get a fully loaded hatchback for such a low price.
