Mirage Australia’s Cheapest Car to Own – Limited time Now only 11,990 Drive Away

November 14, 2013 / Mitsubishi News

“Written by Matt Campbell from Drive.com.au”

The cheapest new car to own and run is the Mitsubishi Mirage, according to the NRMA’s 2013 Running Costs study.

The annual study looks at the entire cost of ownership, including fuel, servicing, registration, CTP insurance, maintenance and depreciation. It uses all of these factors to calculate an average weekly cost.

The Mirage – which is priced from $12,990 drive-away, and won Drive’s budget car comparison test earlier this year – pipped the Suzuki Alto and was praised for offering weekly running costs of $93.29 per week – $3 lower than its rival. NRMA also pointed to the added benefit of a five-star ANCAP crash rating.

Mitsubishi Motors’ Mirage is back and it’s better than ever!

November 14, 2012 / Mitsubishi News

Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited’s (MMAL) Mirage is back, better than ever with an all-new design. Boasting outstanding fuel efficiency, a spacious interior for five people and easy-todrive manoeuvrability, the new Mirage offers nimble performance wrapped up in a stylish and affordable package.

Due to be released in Australia in January 2013, MMAL’s all-new Mirage delivers exceptional environmental and drive performance combined with a fun, sporty design.
MMAL’s CEO Mutsuhiro Oshikiri said MMAL is looking forward to introducing the Mirage to the Australian market. “The Mirage is great value for money, offering lively performance and a brand new stylish design which we are confident will appeal to customers,” Oshikiri said.

“The Mirage is impressive because it balances high performance and functionality with fuel efficiency
in a compact, yet spacious, package that is fun to drive.” The all-new Mirage platform utilises structural optimisation to create a body which is rigid yet still one
of the lightest in class. Combined with a highly aerodynamic body style, the Mirage achieves best in class fuel economy of 4.6L/100kms (ES model) with the LS model returning 4.8L/100kms with manual transmission and 4.9L/100kms in the CVT. The Mirage achieves best in class CO2 emissions of 109g/km in the ES with the LS 5MT not far behind with 113g/km and 115g/km in the LS CVT.

Interior
The Mirage’s spacious interior provides seating for up to five people in comfort. Through using highefficiency packaging, which keeps the engine compartment as small as possible, occupant space is maximised.

The flat dashboard with accent line which traces across the entire length of the dash provides a sense of width to the cockpit. The clean styling of the dash top promotes feelings of space while the glossy piano black centre panel adds a stylish touch. The quality feel of the Mirage’s interior is boosted in the LS model through the addition of silver accents on the shifter panel, gear knob and air-conditioning vents along with the inclusion of chrome door handles.

Two interior fabric trims are available in the Mirage. The ES model features a plain knit black seat fabric embossed with a polka-dot pattern to express a sense of movement. The LS model uses a soft, waffle-weave seat fabric in black and purple to impart a sense of fun with a touch of sophistication.

Black and ivory two-tone dash and door trims in both models, bring lightness and a sense of space to the Mirage interior. The contoured front seats provide a comfortable ride while the rear bench seat with flat cushion ensures all rear occupants, including the middle passenger, enjoy a comfortable drive. The flat rear seating also helps maximise the space to fit more than one child seat with ease.

The Mirage offers plenty of small item storage areas, including a front passenger glove box, dashboard tray above the glove box, centre console tray, front door pockets with bottle holder, front and rear seat drink holders and front passenger seat back pocket. Luggage space can be increased by folding down the 60/40 split rear seat.

Mirage ES comes standard with CD player, two speakers, USB and AUX input and Bluetooth 2.0 with audio streaming. The three-spoke leather steering wheel features phone and audio controls, making it easy to listen to music and safer to take phone calls on the road. In the Mirage LS, convenience is improved with the addition of dusk-sensing headlamps, rain-sensing
wipers and Keyless Operating System with one-touch start to make the daily drive a little easier. Driver and passenger comfort is boosted with climate-control air-conditioning while the audio system receives two additional speakers.

Exterior

Measuring in at 3,710mm long, 1,665m wide and 1,500mm high, Mirage provides generous space for five adults and everyday luggage in a small package. A turning radius of just 4.4 metres gives the Mirage ES the best turning circle in its class, with the LS model close behind at 4.6 metres. With its easy-to-drive nature and outstanding manoeuvrability, the Mirage inspires driver confidence. The Mirage’s clean design imparts an inviting and approachable overall appearance with the edgy headlamps and sculpted engine hood creating a friendly frontal face. Extensive fluid analysis and wind tunnel testing resulted in the Mirage being designed with optimal styling to reduce air resistance. The result is a drag co-efficient of just 0.30 which puts Mirage among the best in class and contributes to lower fuel consumption. Airflow around the front end has been optimised by minimising the grille
opening and crafting the front bumper undersurface to act as an air dam at its corners.

The Mirage provides excellent forward and side visibility due to the low-set belt line and location of Apillars closer to front occupants. The gently curving roof line provides ample headroom for rear seat passengers while air resistance is reduced through the use of a roof spoiler on the LS model. Airflow separation from front to rear has been improved through using a gently tapered cabin roof line which shapes into a trailing edge and the use of prominent edges at the corners of the broad and substantial rear bumper. Adding front fog lamps, roof spoiler, door sash blackout and 15-inch alloy wheels gives the Mirage LS a sporty edge, boosting its street presence.

The Mirage Sport is based on the Mirage ES with additional features to enhance the Mirage’s cleanlines. The Mirage Sport receives 14-inch alloy wheels, roof spoiler, four speakers and door sash blackout. Available in a selection of six richly-hued colours, the Mirage’s sporty lines dazzle in Mulberry, Cyber Blue (LS only), Red Planet and Midnight Black (LS only) while Cool Silver and White add a touch of understated style. Engine Powered by a 1.2-litre all-new Smart MIVEC engine, the Mirage ES has best in class fuel efficiency returning 4.6L/100km. Not far behind the is the LS 5MT with 4.8L/100km and 4.9L/100km in the LS CVT. This results in low CO2 emissions of 109g/km in the ES and 113g/km in the LS manual and 115g/km in the LS CVT. It is expected the Mirage will achieve a five-star rating in the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Transport’s 2012 Green Vehicle Guide thanks to its low CO 2 emissions and fuel efficiency. The 1.2-litre, three cylinder engine utilises Mitsubishi Motors’ MIVEC variable valve timing system that optimally matches intake valve timing to engine speed and load. The air intake and exhaust systems, fuel system, cooling system and other ancillary systems have had extensive weight reduction while friction losses and loads in all moving parts have been reduced. The engine produces maximum output of 57kW at 6000rpm and generates maximum torque of 100Nm at 4000rpm. Combined with a comparatively low weight, Mirage achieves effortless acceleration from a complete stop and when overtaking providing nimble and confident performance.

The Mirage’s Smart MIVEC engine is mated to a five-speed manual or Continuously Variable Transmission, with both options providing peppy performance and easy-to-drive manoeuvrability.
Safety Mirage is equipped with a range of safety systems as standard including six SRS airbags; driver and front passenger, side and curtain. ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution makes driving on slippery surfaces safer by activating brakes to individual wheels when required to deliver superior control and evenly distributing brake pressure across the front and rear wheels accordingly. Active Stability Control works to maintain stability and prevent loss of control while cornering to keep the Mirage online through corners. For child seat installation there are three tether anchors and two Iso-Fix rear seat child restraints fitted. The Mirage uses Mitsubishi’s RISE safety body design to provide an impact-absorbing front end with high-rigidity cabin structure. The extensive use of high-tensile steel panelling reduces the body weight of the Mirage helping contribute to better fuel economy and performance.

The structural design provides impact energy-absorbing spaces under the engine hood and the fenders as well as energyabsorbing cowl top and wipers to mitigate head injury in the event of a pedestrian collision. The front bumper and headlamps also use an energy-absorbing design to minimise pedestrian leg injuries.

On sale January 2013, all-new Mitsubishi Mirage will be available at Toowong Mitsubishi in Brisbane from January 2013.

Hello Folks today we are going to review the Lancer LX.

The Lancer LX is the middle of the range lancer with features that surpass its competitors by country miles. Coming standard with the Mitsubishi 5 year 130000km warranty, roadside assistance and capped price servicing for 4yr/60 000k you can be sure that no matter what happens you have peace of mind motoring. The LX lancer has luxury features that make the vehicle very easy to drive and incorporate with a busy lifestyle. Smart key entry makes unlocking and starting the car a breeze, especially with a hand full of groceries. The alloy wheels and skirts around the car give it that sporty look that the lancer is renowned for. Moving inside the vehicle we find the touch screen in the centre of the dash very user friendly, making it simple to select and listen to all my music through the Bluetooth, as well as take calls when I’m on the road. Pop the car in reverse and the screen also provides a reverse camera allowing perfect precision parking when tackling those difficult car parks. Other features including the leather seats with power adjustment and warming capability, leather steering wheel and gearshift knob as well as piano black dash just add to that luxury presence the vehicle has. For any more information on the vehicle or a test drive just pop in a speak to one of our new car consultants.

Triton GLX-R Review

November 14, 2012 / New Mitsubishi Reviews

The Triton GLX-R is a great ute which can be used for either work or play and with loads of added on features make it well worth the money to upgrade from the GLX Model. With everything from 17”alloys, chrome mirrors, sports bar, sports interior, climate control and even a rear power window which is again a fantastic feature for the tradie or regular family with pets, the GLX-R will not disappoint on the highway or the most difficult of 4wd tracks.
