2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Interior Review


Interior: 4.8

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage has a bland cabin design and low-rent, shoddy surfaces throughout the cabin. The front seats are uncomfortable, and the rear seats are firm and a bit short on legroom. Cargo room is typical for the class. The easy-to-use infotainment system is one positive, though strangely, the upgraded system (that adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) features a smaller screen than the one that comes in the base model.

  • Though there were no squeaks or rattles in our test car – commendable given the amount of vibration from the engine – panel fitment and overall fit and finish were well below expectations." -- Edmunds
  • "The interior is still nothing to write home about. There are plenty of cut corners and exposed bolts, and some items like the sun visors could have been made vastly better for not a lot of money." -- Autoweek (2017)
  • "[The] Mirage feels cheap inside and out. Only the seats and steering-wheel rim are padded; even the door armrests are hard plastic." -- Consumer Guide (2017)


This Mitsubishi seats up to five people on standard cloth upholstery. A rear-seat center armrest comes standard in the sedan but not in the hatchback. Other available features include a driver’s seat armrest, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The front seats are cushioned enough, but an awkward seating position and a limited number of seat adjustments make it tricky to get comfortable. Legroom in the back is tight.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of easy-to-use LATCH connectors on the rear outboard seats and a third upper tether anchor on the rear middle seat.

  • There's a fair amount of room up front, but the lack of a center console can leave the passenger without an armrest on one side. As long as you stick with two rear-seat passengers, they will have enough shoulder room, but rear legroom is tight." -- Edmunds
  • The supportive seat padding and cloth suggest comfort, and the seat heaters are remarkably efficient, but the lousy seating position makes it hard to actually get comfortable." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "Despite being a small bubble with an engine and trunk front and back, visibility is not great in the Mirage. The sloped hood drops off at a steep angle, like in a Prius, and the inability to adjust the seat up or down makes it a little difficult to judge tight spaces. The fact that the front and rear glass is relatively high on the shoulder line makes rear visibility a bit restricted as well, though not for backing up – there is a camera for that (and it's no longer a giant, glued-on bulge on the trunk lid)." -- Autoweek (2017)

Interior Features

Standard in every Mitsubishi Mirage is a 7-inch touch screen, a USB port, Bluetooth, HD Radio, a four-speaker stereo, a rearview camera, and power windows and door locks. Available features include a 6.5-inch touch screen (yes, a smaller one), smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a premium stereo, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and automatic climate control. Front and rear parking sensors are available too. 

The infotainment system is intuitive. Everything is well-positioned to be easily seen and used by the driver.

  • The 6.5-inch touchscreen graphics aren't cutting-edge, but they're simple and straightforward." -- Edmunds
  • "Improvements to the interior this year include piano-black accents, an upgraded and surprisingly good infotainment system, and a few other bits of trim here and there." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)


Cargo room in this Mitsubishi depends on body style. The sedan has 12.3 cubic feet of space, which is typical for a subcompact car. The hatchback has more room, with 17.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 47 cubic feet with them folded. The total space is good for a subcompact hatchback.  

  • While cargo space is more than adequate and adds great practicality to the Mirage, storage for passenger items almost seems like an afterthought." -- Edmunds
  • There's decent grocery-bag room behind the rear seats, but folding the rear seat backs to expand the space leaves a 4-inch step, and the backs don't lie flat." -- Consumer Guide (2017)
