Like the ones you might see after long days traveling in the desert, the Mitsubishi Mirage does not appear at dealerships like ours here at Lindsay Mitsubishi Alexandria. That doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it, as it’s still successful overseas, and we can usually find many relevant pieces of information to share with drivers in the greater Alexandria and Fairfax areas.
The efficient Mirage recently debuted its 2013 model in Japan, sporting some new eye-catching color schemes, but it’s what’s under the hood that we’d like to discuss.
With its 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, the vehicle might not churn out the same level of performance that you’d expect on something like the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Aiming to give drivers another fuel-efficient option, the 1.0-liter engine combined with stop/start technology gives the 2013 Mirage a competitive 67 miles per gallon.
That’s certainly impressive, and after the Mirage debuts in Europe and Australia, maybe we could see it join the new Mitsubishi lineup here at Lindsay Mitsubishi Alexandria? Company officials have said they are taking it into consideration. Even if the model doesn’t make its way to our shores, we’re hopeful that the innovative and efficient engine might, as we’re sure more drivers would enjoy another option that allows them to maximize fuel economy.
