The sub-compact Mirage has had to prove itself over the past 10 years, and it has done just that. While many will turn their nose up or share a joke, but there’s no denying the Mirage has a popular fan base, is really economical, and is a cheap option when looking for a newer, greener model car.

There’s something for every budget listed here.
We still see many examples of this well-produced car on the roads, and this sturdy little beast is fun and reliable. Aside from a few little niggles, as hatchbacks go, this is one of the better choices on the market.
