Between the 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and the 2021 Nissan Versa, will you receive comparable features or find glaring differences? To help San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland, California, drivers, we enlisted our research team to see how they compare. Once you’ve read this, you’ll want to head over to San Jose Mitsubishi for a test drive.
Four trim levels fill out the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 lineup, including ES, LE, Carbonite Edition, and SE. This gives you diversity between the trims, so you can focus on the one that suits you. The Nissan Versa provides three trims, including S, SV, and SR.
The Nissan reaches 177 inches in length and spans 68.5 inches in width, which means it’s stouter. With a height of 57.3 inches, it is shorter than the Mirage G4, so it could go under a shallow underpass. If you’re attempting to park in a tight space, though, the 17.4-inch turning radius may give you a challenge.
Differences surface, though, in the gas mileage stats. No matter the transmission, the Mirage G4 achieves an EPA-estimated 35 city/41 highway MPG. With the Versa and the manual transmission, it achieves an EPA-estimated 27 city/35 highway MPG, but with the Xtronic CVT®, it achieves an EPA-estimated 32 city/40 highway MPG. So, either way, the Mitsubishi gets better gas mileage.
Inside the cabin, each car offers a 6-way adjustable driver’s seat and 4-way adjustable front passenger’s seat. To evenly circulate the air in the cabin, though, only the Mitsubishi outfits it with standard automatic climate control.
Lots more wiggle room comes in the Mirage G4 cabin with 89.2 cubic feet of passenger volume. You’ll also get extra space in the rear with 36.8 inches of rear headroom and 37.3 inches of rear legroom.
A passenger volume of 88.9 cubic feet means less room in the Versa. Also, it has less rear headroom with 36.3 inches and only 31 inches of rear legroom.
Some technological devices in both cars mirror each other, such as the 7-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio system and the rearview camera system in the Mitsubishi. The Nissan gives you a similar 7-inch touchscreen display and a RearView Monitor. Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™, though, come standard in the Mirage G4, while they’re only available in higher Versa trims.
In both the 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and the 2021 Nissan Versa, you can find both similarities and differences. So, which should a San Jose, San Francisco, or Oakland, CA, shopper choose? Go for what you prefer and schedule a test drive at San Jose Mitsubishi for the driving experience.
