Car reviews - Mitsubishi - Mirage - 3-dr hatch
The Mirage still keeps its head high despite the arrival of newer light car rivals
29 Mar 2001
BACK in the mid-'90s, Mitsubishi Australia wasn't convinced it needed Mirage, such was the perceived strength of the new Lancer range. But the little three-door was viewed favourably in local pre-launch clinics, and given the nod. It was a good decision. Though now starting to show its age, Mirage remains a stylish and mighty contender in the compact class where it competes against the likes of the new Toyota Echo and Ford Ka.
Model release date: 1 July 1998 to 1 August 2004
Did you know?Mirage arrived with the CE Lancer range in July 1996.
Though Mitsubishi considers it a model in its own right, Mirage is more accurately a rebodied Lancer Coupe.
It shares the coupe's wheelbase, chassis, much of its cabin outfit and mechanicals, and closely resembles the GLi Coupe specifications.
