Yesterday, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia announced the impending arrival of the all-new Mitsubishi Mirage. The Mirage is open for booking at all Mitsubishi showrooms nationwide, ahead of an official launch in November 2012.
“The all-new Mitsubishi Mirage is now open for booking, and I am confident that Malaysians will like this compact and complete car. With outstanding fuel economy and attributes that make it a perfect urban runabout, the Mirage is set to be a big player in the small car segment,” said Tetsuya Oda, CEO of Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia.
The all-new Mitsubishi Mirage is available in three variants, starting from RM 56,000 for the 1.2 M/T to RM 64,000 for the 1.2 CVT on-the-road without insurance. The first 500 to book the Mirage will receive a special gift. Bookings can be made at official Mitsubishi dealerships nationwide from 1st October 2012.

Powered by a 1.2-litre three-cylinder MIVEC engine with 78 PS and 100 Nm of torque, the lightweight Mirage (850kg) boasts an impressively low fuel consumption figure of 21 km/l. (based on the New European Driving Cycle).
Potential owners can choose from a smooth and efficient INVECS-III Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) or a five-speed manual gearbox drivetrain.
Besides being the lightest and most fuel efficient car in its class, the Mirage makes for a perfect urban runabout by having the best turning radius in its segment, a tight 4.4 metres. The sporty and aerodynamic styling of the Mirage comes with a co-efficient drag value of just 0.30 Cd. The Mirage is available in 5 colours – Lemonade Yellow Metallic, Eisen Gray Mica, Red Metallic, White Pearl and Cool Silver Metallic.
It may be compact at just 3.71 metres long, but the Mirage sits five in comfort. An array of active and passive safety features protect its occupants. ABS with EBD is standard, along with dual front airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners. Bright View instrument cluster, Smart Key with Push Start button*, Digitized fully automatic air conditioner*, leather wrapped steering wheel and 2-DIN touch-screen audio system with USB and iPod interface are available, among other features.
