2018 Toyota Corolla vs 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage

Certain brands are so desirable that you will find it difficult to choose between them, especially if you are an auto buyer. When talking about cars combining luxury and other key specifications, the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage and the 2018 Toyota Corolla battle head to head. Go through a brief comparison of these models and see why we favor Toyota over Mitsubishi.

Design & Style

Both the compact cars catch the attention with an impressive exterior, making it delightful at the first look. The inside cabin of the Mitsubishi Mirage is straightforward and simple, with hard plastic materials. It is a good economic car, with the general appearance, plastic textures and seat fabrics described as basic.

For the 2018 Toyota Corolla, you get a 60-40 folding rear seats, along with features including a USB port, a CD player and Bluetooth connectivity. There is enough legroom and headroom for the passengers and drivers to have it easy when on a ride. You will find it easy to come in and out of the car, while also stretching sideways.  The responsive touchscreen interface is a plus point as well!

Technology & Safety

When considering to buy a new car, technology and safety plays an important role in making the final decision. For the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage, some of the notable changes include a rearview camera, Bluetooth and 7-inch touch screen. The infotainment interface and controls are quite easily reachable. However, there is no Android Auto and Apple CarPlay in the base version. The Mirage comes standard with a hill start assist to keep you from rolling backward on hills, and there’s also a rearview camera added for the new version.

The 2018 Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, is packed with safety features including pedestrian direction, emergency braking and rearview collision warning. It also has a lane departure waning, driving aids and smartphone integration.


Performance-wise, you won’t really find the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage as attractive as the 2018 Toyota Corolla. The former is not ideal for suburban traffic and high-speed highways. With a 1.2-liter, 3-cylinder engine, it produces an output of 74lb-ft of torque and 78 HP.  The numbers are too less to attract even a shrewd buyer looking for a budget option. The Toyota Corolla, on the other hand, is far too superior with a 4-cylinder 1.8 liter engine, producing an output of 132 HP and 128 lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

By contrasting and comparing both the models, the key differences are already highlighted between Mitsubishi Mirage and the 2018 Toyota Corolla. Toyota is a winner in all aspects, although Corolla has its own set of attributes.
