Because they’re budget-savvy and built to last, the competition between the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and Hyundai Accent is a stiff one. But since you can only choose one, our comparison guide is here to help you sort out their differences. Check it out before you start test-driving.
More for Your Money: 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4
The Mirage G4—starting at $14,795—might cost only slightly less than the Hyundai Accent—starting at $14,995—but the Mirage G4 definitely gives you more for your money. We like the Mitsubishi’s smooth ride and cushy seating, for starters. Unlike some other vehicles in this segment, the Mirage G4 even comes standard with full power accessories and a street-smart rearview camera.
But, let’s be real: the Hyundai Accent actually has a pretty similar starting lineup. You certainly won’t lack for basic comforts, like air conditioning and a tilt-adjustable steering wheel. But the Accent’s lack of height-adjustments can make a big difference for taller (or shorter) drivers. On the road, the Accent can feel a little stiff too. We think you’ll prefer the G4 for its confidence-inspiring steering.
Thriftiest Ride: 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4
You don’t just want to spend less on a subcompact sedan. You want to save money on your daily commute. And that’s just another reason to choose the 2019 Mirage G4 over the Accent. Depending on how you outfit yours, this sprightly little sedan achieves up to 36 city and 43 highway miles per gallon.
Although the Accent isn’t quite as thrifty, it’s still in the realm of fuel-efficient. When you choose the automatic transmission, this small sedan is good for 28 city and 38 highway mpg.
Best Tech Lineup: 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4
The Mirage G4 is as tech-savvy as it is budget-friendly. Its standard lineup trumps that of the Hyundai Accent, with a bigger infotainment touchscreen and seamless Bluetooth connectivity. These economy sedans do have tech features in common, however. Both give you full power accessories and a rearview camera at no extra cost, making them all the more accessible.
And, should you decide to upgrade, you’ll find all the latest smartphone offerings on either model. That means extra USB ports to keep devices charged and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to use smartphone apps on your central touchscreen. Who says that cruising the economy circuit means you can’t stay connected?
Premium Warranty Coverage: It’s a Tie!
The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and Hyundai Accent both hit you with maximum peace of mind, thanks to two of the best new car limited warranties in the industry. For new car coverage, these automakers give you five years or 60,000 miles. Their limited powertrain warranties are even better: 10 years’ or 100,000 miles’ worth of coverage.
Both of these economy sedans have you covered, but the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is our favorite daily driver. You’ll love its modern features and your budget will love its reasonable price tag.
