An upgrade to Mirage in early 2016 refreshed last year’s Micro Car class winner and kept it well in contention against some stiff new competition. Although no longer class-leading, there is still plenty to like about Mirage. It is affordable to buy, economical to run and has an excellent five-star ANCAP safety rating. With a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder engine, Mirage is not going to out-run its competitors but it does provide a respectable balance of performance and fuel economy for everyday city commuting. And for peace of mind, Mirage also has a very good five-year/100,000km warranty.
