2018 Mitsubishi Mirage vs 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage | Colorado

Colorado - 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage

Model Overview

Because of market pressures, Mitsubishi had to modify the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 to get it ready for a new commercial launch. The result is the new 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage. Not replacing the Colt that disappeared from the catalog a few years back, straddling between segments, and updated for when it arrived in the US, this new city car seems to do its best to blur the lines.

Mitsubishi, therefore, presents the new 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage to replace the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4. And if we compare models, the new 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage is a small city car with a pretty decent pace for the price, at least in the many markets where Mitsubishi is present.

Differences of the New vs. Old Model - Exterior

What is even more surprising are the efforts made to reduce the mass. The weight when empty for the entry-level model is terrific for this category if we compare models. Another advantage is the length that makes it particularly easy to park, primarily as its short turning radius facilitates the driving as well. It is for all these reasons that we are excited now that the new Mirage has arrived on the Mitsubishi stand.

No matter, the car is here, so let's welcome it as it is. We see a very radical new design with this automobile as well. The trunk, with its large size, is perfectly designed, mainly as it benefits from a 40/60 folding rear seat to offer even more space.

If we can settle for a car with four places in everyday life, the new Mitsubishi Mirage does not disappoint. The new Mitsubishi Mirage also the right measurements to combine a vehicle that is easy to drive and a car that has a lot of space for passengers and cargo as well.

Colorado - 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage's Interior

Differences of the New vs. Old Model - Interior

Another detail to note: although the new Mitsubishi Mirage for 2018 must be content with a list of essential equipment, it offers a few additional nice touches that make it pleasant to drive. The center console has been the subject of some care, with a beautiful black finish, while the instrumentation includes all the meters you could want. Taking advantage of the offers of Mitsubishi, the 1.0l is already trading at a very reasonable price.

In short, on paper, the new Mitsubishi Mirage for 2018 has a very advanced set of features for the price that they are asking for it. Also with the new Mitsubishi Mirage, the big riders can even opt for the 1.5 dCi, the diesel to do everything. The entry-level (1.2l) starts at a fabulous price, and the modern 0.9l TCe (three-cylinder turbo) has different costs according to the finish.

And then, there is the fantastic cabin. Despite its small size, the new Mitsubishi Mirage for 2018 offers a lot of trunk space. Unpretentious, the dashboard is also well designed and functional. Try to remember, if you are seriously thinking of buying this car, perhaps you should get it from Skyline Mitsubishi, a car dealership in Thornton Colorado and serving Thornton Denver Boulder.

Differences of the New vs. Old Model - Mechanical

Driving with an eye on the fuel usage, you will manage to consume much less than the official figures. The 1.2, meanwhile, does not offer much better amenities in the city but has a more comfortable driving style that allows for rural getaways. The range of engines is limited to a few proposals, gasoline, and three-cylinder: 1.0 or 1.2.

Also, the automobile can benefit from an automatic transmission, type CVT. No need, here, to whip the mechanics to have a functional recovery (maximum torque of 135 Nm at 2,200 rpm against 106 Nm at 4,000 rpm for the 1.2l Mitsubishi). But what impresses me the most is the comfort on board.

Silent at startup and in town, the 1.2 MIVEC emits the characteristic stamp of the three cylinders under load. There are hardly any downsides, and the road behavior is incredible. The automobile as a whole, therefore, remains healthy, agile and manageable, and even the bends approached with a zest of dynamism rarely tilt the cabin.

Less in its element for rural trips than for those that are purely city-dwellers, the new Mitsubishi Mirage for 2018 can deal with, meanwhile, fewer issues when parking. Let's be clear: the 1.0 is to be reserved for urban use. The new Mitsubishi Mirage for 2018 is also excellent especially since the peripheral visibility is excellent and the suspension is just right to make sure you have enough comfort. The suspension also easily handles any rough roads.

The small new Mitsubishi Mirage for 2018 can, therefore, handle any rough roads, an undeniable asset for the user. On the other hand, you must love (and not be afraid to) tickle the red zone of the RPM counter to benefit from a somewhat suitable recovery. Also, of course, its price is still very decent. Better suited to the road, the new Mitsubishi Mirage for 2018 is even more of a versatile car than some other small city cars.

Differences of the New vs. Old Model - Safety

Also, the highest trim variation comes with lots of safety devices: a global positioning system with hands-free features as well as speech detection, six airbags, etc. Do not forget, in the event you plan to buy this vehicle, you might like to purchase it from Skyline Mitsubishi, a competent supplier in Thornton Colorado and serving Thornton Denver Boulder.
