Ride quality is quite reasonable in the Mirage.

Ride and Handling

Ride quality is quite reasonable in the Mirage. The suspension damping is set towards the softer end of the scale to absorb the bumps without jarring the car’s occupants, and so you won’t find your passengers gritting their teeth to preserve their fillings when you get a move on. The compromise is handling that is less taut than it should be, so there is a fair degree of body lean and a sloppy feel to driving on a twisty rural road. You find yourself slowing down because it isn’t a car that feels particularly pleasant when you hustle it along on a cross country route. More it its element in town, the Mirage is outshone by several of its rivals in the ride and handling department.

Ease of Use

This is a small car at just 3,710 mm in length, 1,665 mm wide and 1,490 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,450 mm. It is also light in weight at well under a tonne – with a kerbweight of 845 kg. Considering its diminutive size, ease of access is not at all bad. Also on the plus side, the Mirage has the smallest turning circle among similar size cars, just nine metres, so it is easy to manoeuvre and convenient for town driving and parking where space is restricted.  The standard boot space is a modest 235 litres, but this can be expanded to 600 litres with the rear seats folded down.
