    I notice switches for heated seats. Has that always been available?
    Yes on the GT model.

    And for the G4:

    https://www.mitsubishicars.com/mirage-g4/2018

    I wonder if that's intentional.
    They show starting price 2k less for the 2018 vs 2017 on the Canadian site.

    That's going in the right direction! But it's STILL $1k above the advertised base MSRP of the Micra and the Spark.

    The change is good, but still no cigar!

    Does any entry-level subcompact with a torsion beam rear suspension offer a factory rear bar as an option? I know my Yaris didn't (although I did add a TRD unit later).

    EDIT: I see the Micra does in Canada and the Versas do in the U.S.

    Looks like a backup camera is standard now or am I reading that wrong. I'd rather have cruise come standard than a camera myself. It's nice they moved the usb port, many of the drivers at my work don't know it's in the glove box.

    The Canadian Micra's rear bar is standard equipment, even on the $10k stripper special. Its tighter handling is one of several reasons the Micra regularly trounces the competition (Mirage/Spark) in reviews by conventional "enthusiast" journalists. Mirage rides better though. (Especially the 2014/15!)

    Not reading it wrong: backup cameras are required (legislated) for all 2018 models.

    So that means no more base radio with no display?
