    I'm not so sure. The Hyundai Ioniq Blue is MSRP at like $23,000 and is clearly the best value hybrid and best MPG gas vehicle. This is still at $11,000 price difference from the mirage. Unless you get some serious discounts and incentives, that much money buys about 150,000 miles or more in the mirage before you even start to save. In order to actually save money you would need to drive something insane like over 600,000 miles.

    I'm agreeing Mirageman38. And then there's the batteries in the landfill at the end of the life of the vehicle to consider. That seems like a bad deal for the environment.

    Wait, they bury cars in the ground down there? I guess that makes perfect sense.

    I did the price comparison between my $6000 Mirage and buying even a used ioniq. It'd take forever to recoup the fuel savings and I guarantee I wouldn't keep it long enough to make sense. If I were in the market for an overpriced top spec Mirage I'd consider something else like an Ioniq for a little more money, similar if not more features and probably a better/nicer car overall.
