It shows you can make a budget car that also drives and handles well.
Maybe if Mitsubishi had spent more on the suspension. The VW UP costs more than the Mirage, though, five door to five door... (out here).

As I've said... the chassis feels solid and predictable. The trouble is entirely in how soft the springs and bushings used are.
