Japanese automaker will expand its product lineup this year with the addition of a new small sedan. The Mirage G4 will make its first appearance at this year’s Toronto Auto Show in February.
Like its hatchback sister, the Mirage sedan will be powered by a 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine that develops 78 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque, matched to either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic. Although low on firepower, the Mirage is the most fuel-efficient, non-hybrid car on the Canadian market right now, ahead of the Toyota Yaris, the Honda Fit and the Ford Fiesta SFE.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 will likely offer the same comfort and convenience features as the Mirage hatchback. In uplevel trims, that will include an infotainment system that integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated front seats, automatic climate control and Bluetooth connectivity.
It will likely receive that same suspension and braking enhancements that have been announced for the 2017 edition of the Mirage hatchback. And buyers will still be able to choose a purple paint job.
The Mirage G4 sedan should go on sale in Canada this spring, and pricing should be revealed at the Toronto Auto Show.
