The awards’ expert judges awarded Mirage the best overall score from each criterion and commended Mirage for its class-leading fuel consumption, road manners, low running and repair costs and new car warranty.
More than 180 cars were evaluated in this year’s awards with the Mirage ES hatch finishing comfortably ahead of its competition in the ‘Mirco Car’ category.
Australia’s Best Cars judge Andrew Clark from the RAA said the Mirage ES hatch was once again a clear leader in its class.
“The Mirage claims it’s hero title again this year, absolutely trumping the field with value for money, fuel consumption, warranty, running costs scores and a five-star ANCAP safety rating.”
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe said the back-to-back win highlights the Mirage’s well-appointed package and industry-best value.
“Mirage has been a great success story for Mitsubishi – offering an unbeatable mix of style, practicality, value and five star ANCAP safety.
“We are very proud that Mirage has been recognised as the best overall package for value-conscious buyers.”
Starting from $11,990 RRP, the 2015 model year Mirage hatch range is now on sale.
