Mississauga, Ontario, July 24, 2018 – One of Canada’s most affordable vehicles, Mitsubishi Mirage ES, took home the Vincentric Best Fleet Value in Canada Award in the Subcompact Hatchback segment for the third consecutive year.

To determine the 2018 Vincentric Best Fleet Value in Canada™ award winners, Vincentric performed a detailed cost of ownership analysis on over 2,400 vehicle configurations based on typical use in a commercial fleet. Each vehicle was evaluated in all 10 provinces plus the Northwest Territories using 28 different lifecycle cost scenarios and eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. Winners were identified by determining which vehicles had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in the most scenarios for its segment.
