I miss my Wrangler on those snowy winter days. We have a 2017 Forester XT. Heck, I even miss my Golf R. The Mirage is no comparison in the white stuff. JMO after driving a part-time 4x4 and two versions of AWD vehicles.
View my fuel log 2018 Mirage GT 1.2 automatic: 38.0 mpg (US) ... 16.1 km/L ... 6.2 L/100 km ... 45.6 mpg (Imp)
My Mirage with snow tires does not compare to AWD Subaru Forester with snow tires. I wouldn't even say it's close. Having said that, the Mirage isn't terrible in the snow, & tires do make a different. The factory Bridgestone tires on my Subaru were some of the worst tires I have ever had on snow/ice. Add better tires, and it became a totally different machine in snow.
I would not live where I live without AWD in the winter, & I like my little corner of the Driftless region of the world!
