2000 Hyundai Accent vs 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage (which should I get?)


These 2 cars are 2 relatively hard vehicles to find in my area. I am close to closing the deal on a 1.5 liter base model accent. I then noticed that the Mirage of the same year gets better highway gas mileage.

Finding data like coefficient of drag, etc. is hard to find and so are gear ratios.

Anyone have an idea why the Mirage is cited as having better fuel economy than the Accent? There is no info regarding Mirages of these years in the garage which makes things tough. However it does show that people seem to be regularly exceeding these numbers in the Accent.

This is a comparison between 5 speed manuals.

Thanks for any thoughts.
