CAR COMPARISON: Suzuki Dzire 1.2 GL+ vs. Mitsubishi Mirage G4 1.2 GLS

The subcompact sedan segment is one of the tightly-contested market in the Philippine automotive industry. With its reasonable price point, relatively frugal engine, and decent body size, Filipinos easily fell in love with this type of car. As such, local manufacturers are pitting their respective challengers in the subcompact sedan segment.

Among the local manufacturers that want to have its share of the pie are Suzuki and Mitsubishi. Suzuki Philippines launched the all-new Dzire last June 2018. From the looks of it, the Dzire seems to be a ‘desirable’ choice if you’re considering to buy a subcompact sedan. The exterior of Suzuki’s challenger is well-composed and it has a better aesthetic appeal as compared to its predecessor. The interior is not bad either—thanks to the generous legroom brought upon by the Dzire’s longer and wider dimensions. In addition, it’s 1.2-liter gasoline engine is connected to an Auto Gear Shift, which is said to deliver a smoother and more fuel efficient drive.
