Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has officially announced that the Mitsubishi Mirage will be coming to Malaysia and interested buyers can already place their bookings for the hatchback.
The Mirage will come with a 1.2-litre three-cylinder MIVEC engine with an output of 77hp and 100Nm of torque. While the figures are not high, the Mirage is a lightweight car, weighing in under a tonne at only 850kg. All of this contributes to Mitsubishi’s claim that the car is capable of a fuel consumption figure of 21km/litre based on the European driving cycle. Two transmission options are available – a five-speed manual and the INVECS-III CVT gearbox.
Standard features that come with both variants include ABS, EBD, dual front airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners, Bright View instrument cluster, leather wrapped steering wheel and a 2-DIN touchscreen audio system with USB and iPod interface. The CVT gets a Smart Key with Push Start button and fully digitized automatic air conditioning system which the manual variant lacks.
The car is available in five colour options – Lemonade Yellow Metallic, Eisen Gray Mica, Red Metallic, White Pearl and Cool Silver Metallic. Mitsubishi will officially launch the Mirage, offered in three variants, sometime in November. Prices start at RM56,000 for the 1.2 M/T to RM64,000 for the 1.2 CVT on the road without insurance. Additionally, the first 500 individuals who book the Mirage will receive a mystery gift.
