Mitsubishi’s entry into the city car class is some way off the pace in a number of areas but running costs isn’t one of them. The Mirage will cost you just £277 per month to run over a typical lifecycle, which is cheap in anyone’s book . Safety provision and equipment levels are strong but it’s noisy on the road.

Total cost of ownership (3-years, 36,000 miles): £9,998.01Monthly running costs: £277.72Cost per mile: 28p
