“The all-new Mitsubishi Mirage is now available for viewing at all Peninsular Malaysia showrooms and I urge Malaysians looking for a compact, fuel efficient and well-equipped car to go view it. We see the Mirage as big player in the small car segment, and I hope you will be impressed,” said Tetsuya Oda, CEO of Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia.

He added, “The Mirage is equipped with creature comforts and features that are not common even in cars from the class above. Bright View instrument cluster, Smart Key with Push Start button, digital automatic air con, a leather wrapped steering wheel and a 2-DIN audio system with USB and AUX jack are features that set it apart.”

“It is imported from Thailand, which is the global manufacturing hub for this model. Exports to Japan and ASEAN have commenced, and the Thai-built Mirage will also be heading to Australia and Europe, among other markets. Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) Japan, assured customers that the Mirage will remain solely as a Mitsubishi-badged vehicle in the Malaysian market.”

The Mirage is a compact car that counts fuel economy and ease of use as unique selling points. Powered by a modern 1.2-litre three-cylinder MIVEC engine with 78 PS and 100 Nm of torque, the lightweight 850 kg Mirage boasts an impressively low fuel consumption figure of 21 km/l based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).

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 nimble Mirage is perfectly at home in congested urban spaces with the easy-to-use and precise Electric Power Steering and active rear parking sensors.

An array of active and passive safety features protect its occupants. ABS with EBD comes standard, along with dual front airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners. Mitsubishi’s RISE body utilizes ultra tensile steel construction delivers a lightweight but strong body shell for the Mirage.
