I have a relative who has a Tiago. It's been a great car for him. It's almost identical in size and his also has a 1.2L 3 pot. Definitely similar but not the same.
It doesn't have the flappy door handles.
View my fuel log 2018 Mirage SE 1.2 automatic: 33.6 mpg (US) ... 14.3 km/L ... 7.0 L/100 km ... 40.4 mpg (Imp)
I've never seen a Tiago before, but it has a nice appearance overall. It does look similar to the Mirage.
The 175/65r14 tires in the ad caught my attention. I have nothing against 165/65r14 tires being skinny or small. Major U.S. tire companies just don't carry that size, and that is annoying. 175/65r14 would be so much better. Most U.S. tire companies carry that size. The tire size that Mitsubishi is sending to the U.S. market is lame.
When I refer to U.S. tire companies, I am not referring to tires made in the United States. I am just referring to tire companies we are familiar with & have used for decades. I also realize many forum members have switched to 175/65r14 tires with no issue. I don't blame them either.
Rear end and doors looks like Honda Brio.
It's going to be like the housing market crash in miniature. Expensive vehicles that no one wants to buy or own. If you can't pay off a car in a couple years, you probably bought to much vehicle. Many are doing that!!!!
I appreciate Mitsubishi bringing the Mirage to the U.S. market. Outside of the Chevy Spark, the Mirage has a little niche of its own. It's nice to see the Mirage holding its own despite the criticism of the car critic snobs. Since the Mirage competes with other cars at the world level, I hope Mitsubishi continue to improve it as a competitive small car. I hope it doesn't evolve into another CUV or SUV. We have plenty of those already. Although the U.S. market is being driven by larger more expensive vehicle, it's really nice to have a small economy car option like the Mirage.
