The Nissan Versa and Mitsubishi Mirage are two edgy compact cars. They're stylish, agile, and efficient. Which one is right for you, though?

To help drivers in Homosassa Springs, Lecanto, and Citrus Hills, FL, decide, Maus Nissan of Crystal River looked at what these models have to offer in this 2020 Nissan Versa vs. Mitsubishi Mirage comparison.

Versa vs Mirage: Performance Specs

The 2020 Nissan Versa is a sporty compact sedan. It runs on a lively 1.6L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 122 horsepower and 114 lb-ft of torque. To give you full control of your drive, a 5-speed manual transmission comes standard.

An Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is also available. It delivers quick shifting and a smooth ride.

The 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage also gives you a choice between a 5-speed manual and a CVT, but it's not as much fun to drive. It's powered by a small 1.2L 3-cylinder engine that delivers only 78 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque.

Nissan Versa vs Mirage: Infotainment System

On top of offering a fun drive, the Nissan Versa also includes a user-friendly infotainment system. The standard 7-inch touchscreen can help you enjoy your favorite playlist, access your smartphone apps, and stay connected while you drive.

Every trim level comes with the following smartphone compatible features:

  • Bluetooth® hands-free phone system & audio streaming
  • Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™

While Bluetooth® lets you stream your favorite music, podcasts, and audiobooks, SiriusXM® Radio is also available to give you some variety. Plus, with Nissan Voice Recognition, you can switch songs and stations without taking your eyes off the road.

The Mitsubishi Mirage also comes with a Bluetooth® compatible touchscreen. While it includes both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, it doesn't offer SiriusXM® or any text message capabilities.

Mitsubishi Mirage vs Nissan Versa: Safety Features

The Nissan Versa also offers technology that can keep you safe. For example, the standard RearView Monitor gives you a better look at what's behind you when you're backing up. Nissan Safety Shield® 360 is also available to help prevent accidents. It gives you more awareness with driver-assistive features, such as:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning

The interior is well-protected with 10 airbags. You'll be safe no matter where you're sitting, thanks to roof-mounted curtain airbags and seat-mounted side-impact airbags in both rows. Plus, the frame was designed with energy-absorbing front and rear crumple zones

The Mitsubishi Mirage also comes with a rearview camera, but it doesn't offer any other driver-assistive features. The interior is also a little more vulnerable, with only seven airbags and no crumple zones.
