    I'm literally too large for my Mirage, so I notice the size of the car. the armrests, the amount of legroom. etc.

    I'm doing the Ferrari experience in the spring, and I am wondering if I am too tall. I will cram myself in lol

    I'm 6'2 and fit in the Mirage fine. I'm not festively plump by any means so that helps I guess. I squeeze into my old rzr 800. That is not comfortable, I cut a chunk out of the dash so my knee would stop smashing into it. I had a fiero once with no trouble fitting in though it felt like riding in a coffin. I like the driving position of the Mirage over our Armada. The seat in that thing is so high even at the lowest setting, I look through the tint strip along the top of the windshield. If I raise the seat up my head hits the roof. Stupid Nissan.

    Ha that's funny, I would imagine the Armada has more legroom by many inches though. I am pretty skinny myself, but not like when I was 31 and bought my Mirage. When you treat your Mirage like your personal golf cart, you put on a few more pounds. It's like what the future is in the movie Wall-e.

    I guess it does have lots of legroom but the Mirage has enough for me. The armada has a ton or rear seat leg and head room but the third row does not. I dropped one of my kids off at a dayhome this morning in a tight condo parking lot, it's way nicer with the little car. I can open the little doors all the way without door prizing other people cars. Yay!

    Looks almost identical to the 2019 G4 front end. Blacked-out parts where there was chrome previously.

    So I suppose this means the new grill design they have in other markets actually arrives in Canada's showrooms in 2021, or 2022.. or never...

    The 2020 G4 is now listed on Mitsubishi's website, but not the 2020 hatchback. Looks like the G4 will have 3 trim levels (ES, LE, SE) this coming year.

    I wonder if you only get the plush soft armrests, and middle arm rests, on top-trim Mirage's only? The new synthetic leather Mirage sounds neat.
    One of my biggest complaints is the rock hard plastic for the left elbow.

    I like my Mirage and everything, but on long trips especially, or in bad weather conditions, my left elbow is in pain. The bumpier the road, the worse it gets.

    I have also gotten a few nice blisters on my pinky finger from cruising long distances on the freeway. That's happened a few times. Ironically I feel like the steering wheel in my 2014 Mirage is actually "soft touch," compared to most of the interior.
