2017 Mitsubishi Mirage vs 2017 Kia Rio 5-Door

Mitsubishi's Mirage model is a top seller in the hatchback market, but it has plenty of competitors – including the Kia Rio 5-Door. We have put together a comparison between these two models to show you all of the qualities that make the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage the better buy.

In addition to the efficient engine, the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is quite spacious (despite the subcompact classification).
