Subcompact cars are becoming more and more popular among American drivers, and it’s clear why. They offer great value and efficiency for both first-time car owners and savvy shoppers. In addition, they tend to come equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment technology that makes for a fun drive. When shopping around for a subcompact vehicle, many drivers consider both the 2018 Mirage and the 2018 ChevySpark. There are a few key differences between the two, however, and at Tom Hodges Mitsubishi we want to make sure you make the best, most informed decision when buying your dream car.
Both the 2018 Mirage and 2018 Spark are very affordable vehicles, but the Mirage is slightly cheaper and thus offers more bang for your buck. It offers seating for five and is remarkably easy to maneuver and park. The Spark also has some impressive features, such as its infotainment system, but has less passenger volume, so people coming along for the ride may feel a bit cramped. Both offer respectable power and efficiency: the Spark offers slightly more power (20 more horsepower) but the Mirage wins out in terms of efficiency, offering 43 mpg on the highway and 37 mpg in the city as compared to the Spark’s 39 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city*.
Overall, both vehicles are closely matched. However, the Mirage just edges ahead thanks to its superior value.
