The 2017 Chevrolet Spark and the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage are both subcompact hatchbacks, so which one is the better buy? We’re here to help you figure that out. Take a look at this detailed comparison to understand exactly how these fun little cars actually stack up.

Powertrain and Performance

You’re not shopping for a sports car or a heavy duty truck. That much is clear if you’re shopping for a subcompact economy car—but that doesn’t mean a few extra horsepower aren’t nice to have. The Chevy Spark uses a 1.4L four-cylinder engine to produce 98 hp and 94 lb-ft of torque, while the Mirage uses a 1.2L four-cylinder to make 78 hp and 74 lb-ft of torque. The Mirage does offer a modest fuel economy advantage, with 43 mpg highway, compared to 41 mpg highway in the Spark, but it certainly won’t be much fun to drive, and that difference is practically negligible: both are extremely efficient.

Features and Technology

The Spark comes with some key features including daytime running lamps, and the OnStar System with telematics and 4G LTE and in-car WiFi hotspot. OnStar includes features like automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle assistance, and more. None of those features are included in the Mitsubishi Mirage.

Price and Value

These two vehicles have an almost identical starting price. The Spark clocks in at $13,000 MSRP, while the Mirage starts at $12,995 MSRP. One major difference when it comes to value is the fact that the Spark includes two full years of maintenance and regularly scheduled service; that’s a sizable value that is not included in the Mirage.
