2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage

The all-new 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is here and ready to take on the world. Forget the Mirage of the past, because the new G4 has even more to offer.

With the popularity of the Mirage, Mitsubishi designed to expand the lineup, and with that comes to G4 four-door sedan. It made its U.S. debut earlier this year at the 2016 New York Auto Show. As opposed to its Mirage hatchback sibling, the G4 has a separate trunk for those who prefer a sedan over a hatchback.

Tech updates abound, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, so your smart phone can be connected at all times. Efficiency is top-notch, too. A fuel economy rating of 40 mpg makes the Mirage G4 the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid car in the U.S.

On the inside, updated interior materials make the seats much more comfortable than its hatchback predecessors. A new steering wheel makes for a better grip and handling.

While you won’t go from zero to sixty in two seconds, the lower horsepower is made up for in the affordability and efficiency of this sedan.

So now you have something to look forward to: style, efficiency, and affordability all-in-one!

U.S. Mitsubishis Not Affected By Fuel Economy Irregularities

fuel economy irregularities

Mitsubishi Motors North America has confirmed that US vehicles are not affected by the fuel consumption testing data irregularities that recently came to light in Japan.

Mitsubishi Motors R&D America, Inc. worked in concert with Mitsubishi Motors Corporation to conduct an internal audit of US market vehicles and thoroughly review all vehicles sold in the US from 2013 to 2017. It confirmed that none were affected by the fuel economy irregularities and that they complied with EPA testing procedures.

According to Mitsubishi, a different method is used in the United States than Japan to gather fuel mileage figures, which the EPA calls “Road Load Coefficient,” which is independently verified before it is submitted to the EPA. Mitsubishi also says it shared this information to the California Air Resources Board and the Department of Transportation.

In other words, shoppers at Coronet Mitsubishi can feel confident that our vehicles’ EPA-rated fuel economy estimates are accurate and in no way a misrepresentation of their actual capabilities.
