Parkers overall rating: 1 out of 5 1.0

Depreciation should be your biggest concern if you bought new - it will be worth just a fraction of what you originally paid for it. Used buyers will fare better an are likely to lose a lot less. Fuel economy is only average for class; some mechanical parts are expensive; servicing costs are quite reasonable.

Wira performs fairly badly on the eco front. With an average of 213 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are a touch high for a medium-sized hatchback. It's worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is not very frugal, averaging 32 mpg.

Mechanicals developed from old Mitsubishis and are quite tough. Interior trim is flimsy and can come loose. Plenty of interior rattles and squeaks. Needs regular minor servicing to maintain reliability.
