A matter of efficiency

Nobody is saying that the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is going to tear up the track in terms of performance. It wasn’t built for that. The function of a Mirage G4 is to provide an affordable and efficient experience while looking good. Using those criteria, the 2018 Mirage G4 is outstanding. In terms of efficiency, the Mirage G4 is able to eclipse the fuel economy scores posted by the 2018 Chevy Cruze. Owners of the 2018 Mirage G4 can expect to achieve up to 35 miles per gallon in the city and 41 miles per gallon on the highway. The current Cruze falls short of these marks by more than a few points on both sides of the equation.
