    2017 Mirage awarded "Lowest Cost of Ownership" in its class in U.S. - Vincentric



    The Mirage hatchback has been recognized as having the lowest cost of ownership in the subcompact hatchback class in Vincentric's annual ranking. (Yaris wins for the sedan body style.)

    Source (PDF): View 2017 model year vehicles with the Lowest Cost of Ownership in their class

    Cost of ownership factors include:


    • depreciation
    • fees & taxes
    • financing
    • fuel
    • insurance
    • maintenance
    • opportunity cost
    • repairs


    Vincentric identified the Best Value in America winners by measuring which vehicles had lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price. Over 3,000 vehicle configurations were evaluated in all 50 states plus D.C. using a range of annual mileage intervals and insurance profiles.
    This study is similar to previous ones from multiple countries that have singled out the Mirage for its low cost of ownership:

    Depends on if they calculated based on percentage of depreciation, or dollar value of depreciation. A $15,000 car can't depreciate more than $15,000, but a $40,000 car sure can.

    Agreed. A $12,000 Mirage may depreciate $6,000 in the first two years, but a $50,000 car can depreciate $20,000 in the first two years. And $20,000 is more than $6,000.

    Yeah the depreciation is bad, but if you keep it who cares. I traded in my after 2 year and 84k for 6500, so I could of gotten 7800 private party. And indeed the cost to own was amazing. it was less than 15 percent of my net with payment, gas and insurance! Irony is now I own a 2017 Yaris iA, lol
