A new version of the Mitsubishi Mirage has been revealed and it is confirmed for an SA market introduction in 2020.
The compact Mirage does fair numbers for Mitsubishi, with around 140 000 units finding homes around the world in 2018. The new Thai-built Mirage has just been revealed and we can confirm it will be making landfall in SA next year.
"The new city-smart Mirage is planned to be launched in SA in 2020 and we expect this fuel-efficient, compact vehicle to further enhance our commitment to a price-sensitive, but fun-seeking road user," says Nic Campbell, General Manager of Mitsubishi Motors South Africa. In terms of engine, we're expecting the same 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated motor to be in service. It produces 57 kW and 100 Nm.
The facelift update has given the Mirage a sharper look and a reworked interior. There are also 15-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin gains soft-feel cloth trim and an updated infotainment system. Reports also suggest that Apple CarPlay/Android Auto has also been introduced.
We'll have clarity on launch date, specification levels and engine choices early in 2020.
