Last week I was lucky enough to score a new Mitsubishi Mirage sedan LS to trial. I was pretty excited to have a new car for a week so we swapped the car seats over quick smart and got into the Mitsubishi. I’m used to a higher, bigger style car so it was a change but that was the whole point, to show us mums that we don’t need a HUGE car to get from A to B and we can feel lighter and a little free with more $$$ in the bank after filling the tank with petrol. We are all about value and this is such an economical car, we only used between 4 and 5 litres per 100km. That’s amazing!
Even though the car looked quite small from the outside, once you got in it was quite spacious. Our family fit very comfortably. The interior of the car is nice and stylish, I was a little taken back without a middle consol but I survived. They made up for it with the size of the boot. I have a big pram and I was impressed to find that I could fit it in the boot with ease.
We love the smart key and keyless entry features, the way that you can open the door by a button if the key is in your pocket or deep down in the bottom of your bag is wonderful and having a special spot to put the key to set off and driving is fabulous. I don’t know how many times I lose my key in my car now (yes IN my car, or the floor somewhere) so I love that they have created this spot.
I was most impressed by the technology that the mirage has; the Bluetooth system is so easy to set up and before we knew it we had the hands free, voice recognition set up for making calls. My husband loved this as it makes busy peoples lives easier, so safe and as a mum I know that phone calls are best made in the car while the kids are distracted by what’s going past their windows.
My husband’s favorite thing was the rain sensor wipers. That’s right, the wipers come on by themselves when the rain hits. How cool is that? The wiper strength actually adjusts to the environment or the strength of the rain. So cool!
I’m a mum and I just need to know I am safe in a car that will take me from one spot to another with ease with all the bells and whistles to make mummy life that little bit easier. This car hits the nail on the head, its sleek design and affordable price along with all the fancy features, I think it’s a winner!
