2014 Mitsubishi Mirage Highest Ranked Gas-Powered Non-Hybrid Vehicle

2014 Mitsubishi Mirage

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has found the 2014 Mirage to be worthy of its prestigious “Greenest Vehicles” list on greenercars.org for the 2014 model year, making it the highest-ranked gasoline powered non-hybrid vehicle to appear on the list. The greenercars.org annual ranking lists twelve of the vehicles considered the greenest, highlighting the environmental friendliness of vehicles in the United States. With hybrid and electric cars becoming exponentially more popular in recent years, making the list has become more and more competitive.

Available at Phoenix Mitsubishi dealers, the 2014 Mirage is a five-door hatchback that comes in two trims. The base Mirage DE comes with standard features that include automatic climate control, keyless entry, full power accessories, seven air bags and a four-speaker stereo with a CD player and USB port. The ES trim adds features like keyless access with push-button start, Bluetooth phone connectivity, cruise control, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, fog lights and alloy wheels.

Seven extra-cost options packages are available. The Navigation Package brings a navigation system and a rearview camera and the Exterior Package garnishes the fog light surrounds, lower grille, and hatch with chrome. The Exterior Package adds a body kit, while the Parking Assist package includes front and rear proximity sensors. The Protection Package adds mud flaps and other protective body gear, the Cargo Group includes a tray and net in the trunk; and, finally, the LED package brings LED interior lighting.

The Mirage comes with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 74 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional. Mitsubishi says the Mirage gets its best fuel economy estimates with the CVT. According to Mitsubishi, the 2014 Mirage boasts an impressive 37 mpg city, 44mpg highway, and a combined mpg rating of 40mpg. This leaves little competition, with similar cars in the subcompact class estimated at 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.

As for safety, standard features include a seven air bag Supplemental Restraint System, Active Stability Control with Traction Control Logic, and Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution impact-absorbing safety cell technology, among others.
