1 Jul 1996
A new name in the local Mitsubishi line-up, the Mirage name in fact dates back to the original Colt series of 1978.
We also saw the Mk3 Mirage as the CA/CB series Lancer three-door hatchback from 1989 to 1993.
The long-lived 1996 CE series was also a three-door hatch and garnered a strong following with its crisp good looks, refined dynamics, peppy 69kW 1.5L engine and keen pricing.
The single model Mirage could be had with a “Power Pack” option, which included body-coloured bumpers, rear window wiper and power steering.
