    Redemption (Mirage named best all around "performance" car -- TTAC freaks out)

    Look around real quick, didn't see this posted.

    The ‘Best All-Around Performance’ Car Available is the Mitsubishi Mirage, Apparently

    If you’ve ever been inside a Mitsubishi Mirage, you know its only slightly preferable to being hogtied and drug behind a much nicer car. Its engine is beyond anemic at highway speeds, there is an uncomfortable level of road noise, and it’s about as luxurious as a shoebox. The Mirage is the rental you receive when the “special value” option seems too good to be true — because it is.

    Prepare yourself for a brain aneurysm as you read the following sentence: The Mitsubishi Mirage is, according to the Automotive Science Group, the best performance vehicle money can buy. That, and Mitsubishi is honored as the “Best All-Around Performance Brand.”

    HAHAHA. And it's not April Fool's Day.

    TTAC sounds like they are choking on their words.

    That's the truth. But traditional gearheads have only one understanding of the word "performance", and calling the Mirage a "performance car" was bound to get their knickers in a knot. (Probably intentional by the awarding group.)

    For those who haven't seen it yet, an organization calling itself the "Automotive Science Group" (ASG) rates cars based on environmental, economic and "social" metrics, with the tag line "Beyond Zero to Sixty" (so you can see what angle they're coming from there).

    They named the Mirage the best "performance" car in its class. And Mitsu was the best performance brand overall. That's what this is all about:

    You know, it always feels good for someone to tell you you made a good decision with how you spent your money when you're always having to try your best to make it stretch as far as possible.
