First of all, the HR-V has all these safety features that the Mirage doesn’t: active head restraints, daytime running lights, a standard backup camera, and blind spot mirrors. Plus, the Fit outperformed the Mirage in IIHS as well as NHTSA crash tests.
The Fit also handles better than the Mirage. Its tires are larger, which add extra traction. Additionally, it has front and rear stabilizer bars and a longer wheelbase than its Mitsubishi rival. All of this makes a difference in terms of handling. Oh, and did we mention that the Fit also stopped shorter in Car and Driver brake tests?
Ergonomically, the new Honda Fit is definitely the champ of these two cars too. It has more space for occupants and a lot more space for cargo thanks to its Magic Seat, which folds flat into the floor. The Fit also stands out with standard smartphone integration and standard Bluetooth. Bluetooth costs extra for Mirage owners, and the Mirage doesn’t come with smartphone integration.
