The awards represent the best of the best for value for money, design and function and on-road performance of new vehicles. To win, vehicles must have the best overall score in each criteria as evaluated by the expert judges.
Over 220 cars were evaluated in this year’s awards with the Mirage hatch finishing streets ahead of its competition in the new ‘Micro Car’ category.

“The micro vehicle class, introduced to Australia’s Best Cars for the first time this year reflects the unerring demand for budget priced entry level cars.
“The Mirage is the only finalist that comes with a five star ANCAP safety rating with electronic stability control and six airbags including head protection as standard.”
Mitsubishi Motors Australia CEO Mutsuhiro Oshikiri said the Mirage offers an unbeatable mix of style, value and safety.
“Mirage has been a great success story for Mitsubishi – its combination of great features, good looks, fuel efficiency, strong safety credentials and low running costs.
“We are very proud to receive this award in recognition of the overall package the Mirage presents to value-conscious buyers.”
