Mitsubishi Mirage

Expected in India : 2013 Year
Price not yet decided.


The Mitsubishi Mirage is a front-wheel drive subcompact car that was produced by the Japanese-based Mitsubishi Motors from 1978 to 2003, and again since 2012. In Japan, the Mirage was sold at a specific retail chain called Car Plaza. The current Mirage is a three-cylinder subcompact manufactured in Thailand.
The Mirage has a complicated marketing history, with a varied and much convoluted naming convention that differed substantially depending on the market. Mitsubishi used the Mirage name for all five generations in Japan, with all but the first series badged as such in the United States. However, other markets often utilized the name Mitsubishi Colt and sedan variants of the Mirage have been widely sold as the Mitsubishi Lancer including in Japan where the two retailed alongside one another.
In the United States and Canada, the first four generations were sold through a venture with Chrysler as the Dodge Colt and the similar Plymouth-badged Champ and Colt. Later, the venture brought the Eagle Vista and Summit branded models which sold alongside the aforementioned. Confusingly, Chrysler has also offered an unrelated Dodge Lancer at various stages between the 1950's and 1980's. However, when Daimler Chrysler briefly controlled Mitsubishi through the Daimler Chrysler-Mitsubishi alliance from 2000 through to 2004, the license to the "Lancer" name was relinquished to Mitsubishi for usage in North America. Thus, after the fifth and final generation Mirage, replacement models in North America have adopted the new name.
Mitsubishi introduced replacements for the fifth series of Mirage, starting in 2000 with a new generation of Lancer now larger having and moved up to the compact segment. Then in 2002, a subcompact five-door hatchback badged Colt globally became available. By 2003, the Mirage and its derivatives had been completely phased out of mainstream Japanese production. For the 2002 era Colt's replacement in 2012, Mitsubishi decided to resurrect the Mirage name internationally for a new sixth generation model.
With the rising popularity of boxy subcompact SUV's in Japan, the Mirage nameplate was used on a domestic market-only model called the Mirage Dingo, from 1999. The Dingo was face lifted in 2001 and canceled in 2003. However, New Zealand sold a very different Mirage from 2002 a rebadged Dutch-manufactured Mitsubishi Space Star labeled Mirage Space Star. This vehicle was not very popular and was discontinued in 2003.
The Colt was renamed back to Mirage in 2012. The sixth generation was previewed as a concept car at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show. Following the Nissan Micra, the Mirage will have simpler design and mechanical features.
The vehicle was unveiled in 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. Early Japanese model includes 1.0 liter 3-cylinder engine with Auto Stop & Go (AS&G), CVT transmission, 165/65R14 tires.The Thai market model was unveiled at the 2012 Bangkok Motor Show. Thailand model went on sale in 2012-03-28. The Thai model features a 1.2 L three-cylinder naturally aspirated gasoline engine with start-stop, fitted with a CVT or manual transmission. The 1 liter 3-cylinder car for the Japanese market achieves 27.2 km / L in the JC08 cycle and will have a sub-1 million Yen price tag.The car is built at Mitsubishi Thailand's Laem Chabang plant, facility number three. Shipments to Japan began in July, with the Australian model scheduled to hit the market in January 2013.The car's U.S. debut will take place at the 2013 New York Auto Show, however owing to trademark issues, no model name has yet been announced for the U.S. or Canada.
