The G4 sedan takes the hatchback’s adorable design, and adds a trunk. Its small stature is highlighted by smooth lines and sculpted angles. This sedan even has a specially designed front fascia that is slightly different than that of the Mirage hatchback. There’s no doubt that the Mirage G4 is the attractive subcompact to come out of Mitsubishi. Standard features like halogen headlights and color-keyed front and rear bumpers make this sedan truly stand out.

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Performance
Mitsubishi has outfitted the 2017 Mirage G4 sedan with a standard 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine. This engine allows for some extra peppy performance, generating only 78 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque. The 1.2-liter engine is mated to a standard five-speed manual transmission, though a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is also available and comes standard on the SE trim level.
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Efficiency
When it comes to fuel economy, there are very few gasoline-powered sedans that can beat the Mirage G4—if there are even any at all. The five-speed manual model gets 33 mpg city and 40 mpg highways, which offers consumers 35 mpg combined. For those consumers that get the CVT model, the fuel ratings get even better with an EPA-estimated 35 mpg city and 42 mpg highway coming together for a 37 mpg combined.
