By James Yu , Jan 16, 2017 11:15 AM EST

At present, SUVs have the highest demands in the U.S but there is still a significant portion in the market that prefers hot hatch over anything else. The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback is considered one of the best out there not because it is a powerful one but because it is quite affordable. Here's why the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is worth checking out.

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback: Affordable Ride

With economy being tough and unpredictable, powerful and stylish rides are not really considered to be practical. Aside from the fact that they are usually expensive, they also normally consume a lot of gas. The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback is one of the few vehicles in the market that are not just affordable but also capable of handling daily transportation needs. The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is available in three trims from the base ES, SE and GT. It has a starting price of $12,995, $14,795 and $16,495 for the three trims respectively as reported.

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage: Just Enough Power

The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is not particularly a very remarkable ride in terms of power. As reported, the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is equipped with a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated engine that can only deliver 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a standard five-speed manual transmission and an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT) as reported. The power may not be a lot but it is enough to get people from point A to point B.

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage: Premium Fuel Efficiency

One of the advantages that comes from the lack of power in the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is that it gets a good rating in terms of fuel efficiency. The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is capable of 33/41/36 miles per gallon in the city, on the highway and combined with its manual transmission. Those numbers get better in the CVT gearbox as they move up to 37/43/39 miles per gallon in the city, highway and combined respectively as reported.
