Holy $)%&, my eyes just about fell outta my head just now.
2021 Canadian Mirage review that starts out...
And it just goes on from there being completely level-headed.The Mitsubishi Mirage is one of the most affordable cars in North America Ė and one of the most misunderstood. [...] Itís uncomplicated and utilitarian in a way that ought to be celebrated, but that enthusiast reviewers just canít get their heads around. Thatís too bad, because itís a good little machine.
Probably the most reasonable review of the car I've ever read.
I loved this line:
the Mirage caters to people who donít feel the need to make a statement: the anti-Joneses, if you will.
And..Iím convinced that todayís reviewers have grown so accustomed to the astonishing performance of modern premium cars that they have lost sight of just how far our econoboxes have come.
It's not all sweeness and light. He does list a number of valid criticisms, but overall worth a read.And to the reviewers who will be driving this car in the coming months: please stop moaning about how it doesnít corner like a Civic or accelerate like a Sonata. Itís nice to have those points of reference, but that isnít the point. Letís save the cheap shots and keep our comparisons grounded, because this car is fine.
Itís time to give the little Mirage its due.

Joneses who? Not as quiet as a Rolls-Royce, but will fit 1,331 litres of chocolate milk
