2022 Mirage Interior

The Mirage's overall build quality is cheap, as expected from a budget-friendly car, although panel gaps are even and fixtures and fittings all feel firmly in place. Moving to the inside reveals the Mirage's shortcomings, however. The tangible impression is one of low quality with the majority of the cabin's materials being low-grade and the seats and key touch points feeling cheap and flimsy. The cabin's ergonomics are also questionable as the driving position feels awkward in correlation with the steering wheel and controls, though all are in easy enough reach. The seats up front are spacious but the passenger room overall is rather confined in the rear, as is expected of the segment.

Seating and Interior Space

Although Mitsubishi advertises the Mirage as a five-seater, the rear seats will only seat two adults at best, and even then, they need to be on the shorter end of the spectrum. Headroom is somewhat limited, too, whether in the front or the back, and any occupant over six feet tall will struggle for comfort. Legroom is otherwise only tight in the rear, with a bit more space to stretch out in front. The driver's seat is six-way manually adjustable and the front passenger's seat four-way manually adjustable, which isn't particularly accommodating. To make matters worse, the cloth seats aren't very comfortable or supportive at all, and many rivals in this class offer better seating. Outward visibility is good all-round by virtue of the thin B- and C-pillars, but the driver's seating position is slightly awkward with the seat feeling too high-set, leaving the driver feeling perched awkwardly over the steering wheel.

Interior Colors and Materials

Because the Mirage is a budget-friendly vehicle, the interior is kept low-grade and relatively plain with black cloth on the lower three trims. The SE feels a bit better quality, though, with its mix of cloth and synthetic leather. This model and the BE also enjoy a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, both with red stitching on the BE. The SE has chrome front inner door handles. The shift panel is silver painted on lower trims but finished in gloss black for the SE. Setting the BE apart are red cloth door-panel inserts, red stitching on the seats, and piano-black vent and console trim. Overall, though, it's possible to see why Mitsubishi has been able to keep the Mirage's price so low from behind the wheel.

2022 Mirage Trunk and Cargo Space

As a hatchback, the Mitsubishi Mirage has an impressive 17.1 cubic feet behind the rear seats, which is enough room for a month's worth of grocery shopping for a small family. That's more capacity than that of the Chevrolet Spark though, which offers only 11.1 cu-ft behind the rear seats. If more cargo room is required for more or larger items, the rear seats do feature a split folding function which expands cargo room to 47 cu-ft. This is at least one area where this otherwise bland car impresses.

The Mirage has a decent amount of in-cabin storage solutions considering how compact it is. There are practical door side pockets with bottle-holder sections on both front doors, and two cupholders located ahead of the center console. A single cupholder is available to the rear, and there is a small storage slot ahead of the dual cupholders up front. The passenger-side glovebox is rather compact, however.

2022 Mirage Infotainment and Features

Features

The Mirage comes outfitted with the bare minimum in features as an entry-level budget-friendly vehicle. In the base-spec ES, there's remote keyless entry, all-power accessories, a six-way manually adjustable driver's seat, four-way manually adjustable front passenger seat, a split-folding rear seat, automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and cruise control. On the SE trim, the Mirage gets access to heated front seats, push-button ignition, and lane-departure warning, but all versions come with forward-collision warning, hill-start assist, and a 12-volt power outlet.

Infotainment

The Mitsubishi Mirage gets a seven-inch Display Audio screen. It's linked to features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an AM/FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and a four-speaker sound system. Using the steering wheel controls, drivers can access audio and voice control options. There is just one USB port for charging smartphones. Overall, the setup is nothing special but does come with enough essentials so that younger buyers won't feel too shortchanged.
