Nissan Micra Vs Mitsubishi Mirage
SMALL CAR. SMALLER FOOTPRINT.
In a world where electronics and technology are increasingly becoming smaller and more advanced with every passing moment, it was only a matter of time before the automotive industry got involved. The Sub-Compact vehicle class, a class that puts a focus on efficiency and technology, has burst onto the car scene in a big way. An all-new vehicle class that puts a strong focus on efficiency has burst onto the car scene in a big way. And in a world where efficiency, especially when it comes to being environmentally conscious, is no longer a choice but a necessity, it is crucial that we make it easier to do so.
The sub-compact class takes the pressure off going green in the environment and the green in your wallet. By creating a vehicle that is small in stature, but big of compatibility, performance, and luxury, all while being incredibly efficient, the Sub-Compact vehicle class has quickly become one of the most fashionable car-types seen on Edmonton roads. Its popularity has soared exponentially since its birth only a couple of years ago. It’s a class of all-stars. But even amongst greatness, there stand outs. There are two vehicles in particular in the sub-compact class that stand out among the rest, the Nissan Micra in Edmonton and the Mitsubishi Mirage.
But in such a tight race, which horse in this derby shall come out the victor?
Starting with the exterior, both vehicles are pure eye candy to look at. The sub-compact class is designed in a way to provide the dirver and passengers with the maximum comfort, style and power in the most efficient body frame. These vehicles are offered a unique opportunity to have an exterior that has a unique look. Each has their charms. While the Mirage is a muscular, sturdy framed vehicle, like a professional wrestler flexing its perfectly formed muscles, the Micra is a taller, slimmer build, like an NBA star in the prime of his career. A larger body which allows for more space inside for passengers and storage, while allowing for a better all-around view of the road and everything outside your vehicle. The sharp and lanky exterior is the smartest looking Sub-Compact on the road today, which is why I give the edge to the Nissan Micra.

COOL TECH YOU DIDN’T EXPECT
On a performance level, it’s hardly a fair fight. The Micra knocks it out of the park on this one. With a larger engine, the Micra boasts a 104 HP compared to the Mirage’s measly 74 HP. While packing a more powerful engine, the Micra also manages to not only compete but land near the top of the class in fuel economy. The Micra will use on average $400 less fuel per year than the Mirage. The 2015 Nissan Micra is not only efficient, but incredibly functional as well. When it comes to performance, it really is a no-brainer. The Micra is the way to go.
When it comes to features, both safety and luxury, there seems to be a clear winner here as well. The 2015 Nissan Micra, which I’ve already stated has much more storage and passenger space, also comes with great interior features as well. The only Sub-Compact vehicle with a rear back-up camera, which is a huge leap when it comes to functionality and safety. Whereas other vehicles seem to have a limited vision, focusing on either functionality or technology, the Nissan Micra conquers both departments. It is for these reason that the Micra wins yet again, making it a true class above the rest.
The one area where the Micra seems to lose out is the price. Available at a cost slightly above the Mirage, the Micra doesn’t cheap out on any categories. Where as the Mirage is a more streamlined version of what the Sub-Compact vehicle class can offer, the Micra encapsulates the possibilities available. If you want to avoid what is just fine, what is the epitome of mediocrity and boredom, then the Micra is the vehicle for you. Don’t be put off by its petite stature, the 2015 Nissan Micra dreams big.
Both of these vehicles offer exactly what the Sub-Compact class has to offer, but only one of them thinks outside the box and offers you much more than you ever imagined. With tight steering, economic fuel efficiency, combined with power and safety performance that blows the competition away, it is no doubt that when choosing a Sub-Compact vehicle, that the Micra is the way to go.
The 2015 Nissan Micra stands tall amongst a class filled with giants.
Figuratively speaking of course.
