The winner of Australia's Best Cars in 2014 we have a new category micro cars – and the winner is the Mitsubishi Mirage.
The mostimportant thing in this category is the entry-level pricing so this isone of the lowest price cars on the market and it has very low operating costs andmaintenance costs the competition that's in the Australian market these days you can't ignore all of the other design factors of the car so its got to be practical and easy to use This is a city car got a 1.
2 litreengine with a five-speed manual gearbox butthat doesn't mean its sort of dull in its performance on the road.
The modern engines perform quite well.
This car is class leading in fuel economy, it's below 5 litres per 100 kms Any of these budget price cars are obviously aiming at the first car buyer, colour is important as is phone connectivity.
Some of the cars in this category are pretty tight in the back and you'd only have children in them I can sit in the back of this car so its a four seater and its got practical load space even thought its a light car car class, it still has to have the stability control which is a requirement for ANCAP, it stillhave the curtain airbags.
One of the very best things about the MitsubishiMirage it is the only 5 star ANCAP car we have in the top 3 this year.
