The usage of mieux and meilleur

The usage of mieux and meilleur

I'm confused about the usage of the adverb "mieux" and "meilleur(e)". In the sentence  "J'aime bien ta voiture, elle est mieux que la leur." adverb "mieux" is used, so the adverb now describes how the car *is*. So, I saw the verb "to be" being described by both the adverb and the adjective and I have no idea why it is so. 

If there is a lesson for that, that will help a lot.

Hi Emre Can,

Please take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson which should give you an answer to your question. Also, look at the Q&A at the end of it as it has been asked before -

Meilleur, mieux, pire / plus mauvais, plus mal = better, best, worse and worst (irregular comparatives and superlatives)

Bonne Continuation!
