2017 Mitsubishi Mirage 06

The new Mitsubishi Mirage has been updated for 2017. Unveiled at the ongoing LA Auto Show, the economical supermini now brings a proper front grille and a bunch of feature updates.

Apart from the grille, the Mirage’s rather subdued image has been revamped with new hood, front and rear bumpers, as well as redesigned head and tail lights. The car also gets a new rear spoiler and updated wheel design.

Inside, the Mirage greets occupants with its new seat fabrics, gauge cluster, steering wheel and shift panel. The car is now available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it the company’s first model to be offered with the infotainment systems. Additionally, audiophiles may opt for the 300-watt Rockford-Fosgate audio system.

Residing under the hood is the familiar 1.2-litre three-cylinder MIVEC mill that has been enhanced with roller-type camshafts. The unit makes 78 hp and 100 Nm of torque, sent to the front wheels via a CVT.

In terms of handling, the Mirage features stiffer suspension thanks to the optimised spring rate and damping force. Brakes are larger than before – 251 mm discs up front, 203 mm drums at the rear. New brake pad materials are also employed for better stopping force.

The Mirage gets seven airbags (in the US), four-wheel ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, stability control, traction control, tyre pressure monitoring system, as well as hill start assist.
