    With gas prices climbing across the country, penny-pinching shoppers might want to consider a low-priced, economical small car like the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage GT. The Mirage GT hatchback, brethren of the Mirage G4 sedan, carries with it some surprising features for its price — and has the gas mileage to back it up.
    This is the third article Cars.com has posted about the Mirage GT in the past couple of months.

    And all have been positive. This one reads almost like a commercial in its opening paragraph.

    It makes you wonder.

    Based on its expensive price point at nearly $18,000, you could argue that the GT is the least attractive Mirage of all the trim levels in the lineup.

    It is an interesting favorable opinion piece. Top_Fuel has a point - if the goal is frugality, it is better achieved by not purchasing the most expensive trim level available.

    But who am I to criticise a little positive feedback. It's nice to see someone point out the best attributes, the main focus of the design.

    Like Sammy said: Suckers walk, money talks...

    It's as if MMNA has started an advertising campaign or something.
