We have a senior in our house. He’s getting ready to head out on his own and we’re in the process of car shopping. One of those big parenting decisions to make it what type of car your child gets for the first time. Drives STI reached out to us to explore the city in one of their vehicles a Mitsubishi Mirage and share about it with you.
After driving the Mirage around the city for a week we realized that this just might be the right size for him. With a roomy interior with comfortable seating front and rear it would be perfect for getting around the city for work and with friends. The parents in us felt much better knowing that they have created RISE which is a Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution Construction that deflects and transfers crash energy away from occupants. A big win in my books. Plus it has 7 interior airbags including driver’s knee impact protection and rear passenger doors. Having all of these features helped it to earn a Best of Class in Safety Award.
We used the car to go sight seeing at some of Chicago’s Top Tourists Attractions and we also took it on the road to the suburbs for some appointments and to meet with some of my favorite bloggers. I had a chance to meet in person Jennifer Hughes from The Jenny Evolution and The Sensory Spectrum. I also had the chance to meet with Laura Marshcel from Lalymom and her adorable 2 year old son . Then for a special night out at we meet with Danya Abraham from Lemon Lime Adventures and Project Sensory. I can’t not express how thankful I am to be able to connect with bloggers when I travel. I learn so much each time from them.
The Mirage comes with lots of features like push to start with power windows, mirrors, doors on all models. Plus the Key FOB which gives you fast key passive entry and remote operated locks and hatch. Making getting in and out super easy. I image it would make it super easy for my son to go and visit with his new friends in the city. We enjoy taking our car on our Chicago Food Tour too! (Click here to see)
When it was time to fill up the tank I think my jaw about dropped. Just 20 bucks and we were done. The Mitsubishi Mirage gets 37 city and 44 highway which was terrific on our budget. It was named to the American Council for Energy Efficient Economy’s “Greenest Vehicles” list. A big win in this mom’s books!
A big thanks to Drive STI for providing this vehicle loan for review. All opinions are mine alone.
