The latest Mirage remains a cute little hatchback and gained a touch more attitude last year with its restyled grille and headlamps. Halogen headlights are standard on all but the top trim which gets LED headlights. All models are fitted with LED taillights and a high-mounted LED stop lamp, but only the Black Edition (BE) and SE get fog lights. The ES rides on 14-inch steel wheels with covers as standard, while the LE is equipped with 14-inch alloy wheels. The BE and SE come with larger 15-inch alloy wheels, painted black on the former. All models have a rear spoiler. The BE is alone in getting a Black Edition badge and black-out treatment for its wheels, mirrors, and roof spoiler. Both BE and SE get red grille accents.
The 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback is on the larger side when in the company of other subcompacts. In comparison with the Chevrolet Spark, the Mirage is 8.3 inches longer in overall length at 151.4 inches, and it's a full inch taller in stature with a height of 59.4 inches. It's also a tad wider with a width of 65.6 inches. Its 96.5-inch wheelbase is 2.6 inches longer than the Spark's, and the Mirage also rides a full inch higher off the ground with a ground clearance of 6.3 inches. Surprisingly, the Mirage is over 200 pounds lighter than the Spark on average, with curb weights ranging from 2,040 lbs with the manual-equipped ES to 2,117 lbs with the CVT-equipped SE.

There are eight exterior paint colors available for the Mirage but the base ES only has access to five of the eight. White Diamond is the only shade that requires an additional outlay of $395. All the other hues are metallics, including Starlight Silver, Infrared, Mercury Gray, and Mystic Black. The other trims additionally gain access to Wine Red, Sand Yellow, and Sapphire Blue. Of all those color options, Wine Red and Sand Yellow stand out most.
