There is a lot to be said for small cars. These vehicles are perfect for being your reliable and efficient daily driver, consuming fuel at slow paces so you can stretch your fuel budget for everything it’s worth. Honda has been producing cars that excel in efficiency and reliability for generations, and that continues with the 2020 Honda Civic. One such variant of this efficient and stylish car is the Civic Coupe LX with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the latest version of the popular Honda nameplate. It’s not without its competition, however, as compact and efficient cars are highly sought after. Let’s take a look at how it competes with another compact car from a global brand with this 2020 Honda Civic Coupe LX CVT vs 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage ES CVT comparison.

In some ways, your choice is going to depend on whether you prefer the coupe style or the hatchback style. We know there are benefits to a hatchback and appreciate the style ourselves, but when you look at these two models, the Civic Coupe pulls ahead of the competition. With its 2.0-litre engine, the Civic Coupe LX can deliver 158 horsepower, which is miles beyond the 78 horsepower offered by the engine inside the 2020 Mirage ES. Even with more power, the Civic is also able to provide better fuel efficiency.
Technology is an important part of life today, and the 2020 Civic Coupe delivers the goods. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ come standard, so you will be able to synchronize your compatible smartphone to the car and use select applications and take advantage of such features as hands-free messaging and calling. You’ll also be able to enjoy technology features for your safety and convenience, such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and the Lane-Keeping Assist System, which you won’t find in the base trim of the Mirage.
Plain and simple, the 2020 Honda Civic Coupe LX CVT offers more of what you want from a small car. If you are in the St. John’s area, contact us to find out how you can get behind the wheel today!
