Kelley Blue Book is venerated as one of the most renowned and reputable sources of vehicle information in the business for both buyers and sellers, and as a result, it’s responsible for bestowing a number of honors and awards on automakers and models every year. One of these awards is a spot on the annual “10 Most Affordable New Cars” list. For 2017, the Mitsubishi Mirage secured itself a spot on the list, earning a Most Affordable Award from the prestigious organization.
In order to determine which models make the shortlist, KBB.com looks closely at what they feel not only offers car buyers the most bang for their buck, but also how well each nameplate holds value over a period of 5 years. Insurance and gas costs as well as depreciation all factor into KBB’s 5-Year Cost to Own. After looking at a variety of different vehicles, the Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 both made the list of Most Affordable New Cars thanks to features like great fuel economy and some of the best powertrain and new vehicles warranties in the industry. Additionally, available upgrades like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and a Rockford-Fosgate sound system add to the appeal.
Come to Heritage Mitsubishi to check out the winners of the “Most Affordable” Award today – the 2017 Mirage and Mirage G4.
The Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport aren’t the only winning vehicles in the Mitsubishi line – the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is taking home awards, too. This year, the Mitsubishi Mirage earned multiple awards from the Automotive Science Group.
The ASG awards are handed out every year. For a car to earn an award, they have to meet their standards of performance, affordability, and environmental friendliness. The Mirage checks off all of the boxes. For the 2017 awards year, the Mirage exceeded expectations. It earned three top awards, not including Mitsubishi’s awards of Best All-Around Performance Brand and Best Economic Performance Brand.
The Mirage itself took home Best Economic Performance Car, which means it outshined other cars in terms of performance and affordability. It also got awards for Best All-Around Performance and Best Economic Performance. All of these awards tell you that when you choose the Mirage, you’re getting an affordable, fun car.
Besides the Mirage, the Outlander and Outlander Sport also earned awards for all-around performance. Mitsubishi excelled this year in ASG awards, and they likely will in future years!
