The Mitsubishi Mirage is a breakthrough in the industry, largely because this high-quality vehicle comes at such an affordable price. In fact, the Mirage is the most affordable new car on the market. Mitsubishi heard the complaints of the general public, especially demands for reasonably priced cars. The Mirage offers drivers a compact, city-friendly design that doesn’t skimp on features or comfort—all for a low cost.
In addition to the new Mirage, there is also a Mirage G4, leaving many car shoppers scratching their heads. What exactly is the difference between the Mirage vs. Mirage G4? According to Car and Driver, G4 stands for “Global 4-Door,” a design that’s intended to be the ideal model for the middle and working class. No pretentious frills. No over-the-top designs. You get quality materials, sharp styling, high-tech features, and a fuel-sipping powertrain.
The standard Mirage is a compact five-door hatchback, with 17.2 cu ft of cargo space and a European-inspired design. The Mirage G4 comes with a sedan body style. That means you get a separate trunk. Though most people think sedans offer more room than hatches, which is a common misconception, the sedan G4 actually has 12.3 cu ft of cargo room. Nonetheless, most Americans prefer this look and style.
Put simply, the Mirage is a hatchback while the Mirage G4 is a sedan. Both come with a three-cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission. Plus, both come with 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranties, nearly double the industry average.
