Mitsubishi Mirage is a triple treat
19:28, Feb 22 2013
Triple treat: Three-cylinder engine is only 50cc smaller than the first Mirage's four, but it has fewer mechanical and pumping losses.
Rear room: Good space, but the rear bench is flat and does not offer much side support.
Two-tone interior: It conspires with well-chosen materials to give the new Mirage a ppeasingly attractive driving environment.
Five-door hatch design: The high-mounted spiler is also a GLS feature.
Mitsubishi Mirage: Alloy wheels and auxiliary driving lamps show that this is the more expensive GLS version.
Then and now: Mitsubishi Mirage, first seen here in 1978 and a staunch family favourite in the 80s and 90s, makes a 21st Century comeback.
Load space: It's usefully sized and well-shaped, but there's a step when you fold the 60/40 split seatbacks.
