Mitsubishi has just announced that the Mirage will not be appearing as a 2016 model. Instead, the automaker will introduce a refreshed 2017 model in spring of 2016.
Mitsubishi wants to spend more time ensuring that the updates are strategic and implemented well. Car and Driver reports that the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage updates will be related to the powertrain and chassis.
At the time that it was released in 2014, the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage was the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid gasoline vehicle. With its 5-door subcompact design and affordable pricing, the Mirage was the perfect example of a car built for the demands of today’s driving.
And the 2015 Mirage certainly gained notice. Cars.com ranked the hatchback #1 in its New Cars for Penny Pinchers list. The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy named the Mirage to its prestigious Greenest Vehicles list. It’s this model that will remain available throughout the 2016 model year (2015).
In addition to a refresh for the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback, Mitsubishi will also be introducing a sedan variant, which we have yet to see here in States but is already sold overseas. For more information, make sure to stop by Coronet Mitsubishi for all of your Mitsubishi needs.
