I am sure you must have participated in our discussion on whether the Mitsubishi Mirage is suitable for the Indian Market. At the Tokyo Motorshow, Mitsubishi Motors have finally taken the wraps of their new little wonder. Mitsubishi has showcased a production version of the new Mirage which the company claims ‘will satisfy the needs of people all over the world’
Unlike the Toyota Etios which is developed specifically for India, Mitsubishi Motors has developed this sub-compact hatchback for global markets (like the Nissan Micra/Sunny). Thus, the styling is kept simple and clean to be accepted by people across the globe.
The Mirage is powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine with variable valve timing and a start/stop system to combat the rising fuel prices. The company claims that the Mirage gives an astonishing 30 km/l.
The Mirage will be on sale in Thailand from March 2012. No plans of bringing it to India have been revealed by Mitsubishi India. However, the parent company has confirmed that it will be sold globally in both in emerging markets and developed nations.
