Budget-friendly price tags and thrifty performance are specialties of the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and Nissan Versa. In fact, these economy sedans have so much in common that choosing between them can actually be tough. Luckily, we’re here to give you a closer look at both.
More for Your Money: 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4
Both the Mirage G4 and the Versa are priced for budget-friendly monthly payments. But Mitsubishi’s economy sedan actually gives you the most modern features for your money. And Mirage G4 even costs a little less to boot.
What standard features does the Mirage G4 have on the Versa? To start, it’s got full power accessories. Let’s face it: modern drivers don’t want to spend time cranking windows and hitting manual lock buttons. The Mirage G4 also looks cool with its rear spoiler and automatic headlights. And the Mitsubishi makes for an easy getaway too, thanks to its keyless entry technology. (Note: you can find all of the above features on the Nissan Versa. But you do have to pay more to get them. And that, of course, is why the Mirage G4 comes away with the win.)
Smooth-Riding Comfort: 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4
If you plan to do a lot of around-town cruising, you’ll love how smooth the Mirage G4 feels. This sedan also scores major points for its seats, which are cushy but still supportive enough to get you through long trips.
The Nissan Versa has some draws as well—namely, a big back seat for your road trip endeavors and wide-ranging front visibility to bolster driver confidence. But there are also some drawbacks. The driver seat isn’t as height-adjustable as we’d like, and some (taller or shorter) drivers might be left struggling to find a comfy spot at the wheel. The cabin materials are on the plasticky side too, subtracting from your new car experience.
Pack a Bigger Suitcase: 2019 Nissan Versa
Looking for a cargo hold that’s big enough to bring everything but the kitchen sink along for the ride? You might be in need of the Nissan Versa, which gives you a utility bump with 14.9 cubic feet of cargo space for your stuff. The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is almost as roomy, but, with only 12.6 cubes available, you are going to have to pack a little lighter.
Inside the Versa cabin, the extra big glovebox lets you stow valuables out of sight. And both sedans offer cubbies for your smartphones and key chains, so you won’t wonder where you left your favorite items.
Premium Peace of Mind: 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4
Not many automakers can compete with Mitsubishi’s warranty coverage. Should something go wrong, the 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty is there to help you out. Mitsubishi’s new vehicle limited warranty is equally impressive, keeping you covered for five years or 60,000 miles.
Nissan’s warranty coverage isn’t bad, but it’s pretty basic. The powertrain limited warranty keeps your engine running for five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. The new car limited warranty lasts 36 months or 36,000 miles.
Put the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 at the top of your wish list. While the Nissan Versa isn’t a bad pick, the Mirage G4 is a great one. This small sedan saves you money and even bolsters your peace of mind. And, in spite of all those savings, you’ll never feel like you’re missing a thing.
