The automotive market place is ever-changing with consumer tastes, and the current generation of vehicles are more advanced than ever. Computer technology has changed the way that we drive for the better, and the new crop of cars are implementing it more than ever. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t several new cars drivers should avoid.
Unfortunately, there are also new cars that have been rushed and are oftentimes outdated relics from a previous generation. Drivers also have the new batch of crossovers that are making their way onto the market. We are going to be taking a look at 30 new cars that are best left avoided according to Consumer Reports.
30: Mitsubishi Mirage
The lowly Mitsubishi Mirage has been on the market for a long time now. The 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine produces a measly 78 horsepower, a number more reminiscent of a Geo Metro. Not only is that vastly underpowered in today’s world, but the car is also basic. The interior isn’t much better then what you’d expect from a rental car fleet.
Aside from the obvious shortcomings, the Mirage manages to boast an incredible fuel economy rating. But that’s only if you can put up with the cramped interior of the car. The Mirage is a bit long in the tooth, but if you want brand-new basic transportation, the Mirage is it, we suppose.
