But when you compare the latest models side-by-side, it’s clear that the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage has more to offer than its Kia rival.

Before we get into the specifications of each model, let’s first look at the starting MSRP for the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage and 2019 Kia Rio. Subcompact cars are known for being affordable, but the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage still manages to stand out with its incredibly low starting MSRP, over $1,500 less than the 2019 Kia Rio.

Plus, it also offers plenty of space on the interior, nearly matching the 2019 Kia Rio in passenger volume and significantly surpassing it when it comes to cargo space. The key is the 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage’s hatchback design and fold-flat rear seatback, which allows for maximum versatility and tons of cargo space!
