Mitsubishi scored a 10Best get with its Mirage Turbo. That pleasant small compact led its course in refinement, overall performance, and style. Fast-forward twenty five many years towards the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage and it appears like issues have absent backward-fast.
If the brand new Mirage had been despatched back again 1 / 4 century, it most likely could not return having a 10Best trophy unless of course it wrestled 1 far from the previous Mirage and raced back again in to the time device. But with seventy four horsepower, the brand new Mirage is not racing anyplace. Flooring it, some thing you will end up performing a great deal, and also the seventy seven decibels of ringing three-cylinder grittiness can make you question if there is really a leaf blower below the hood.
Even if idling, the small one.2-liter sends quivers with the whole vehicle. And will you choose for your CVT, the trio of cylinders will grumble in protest each time you are attempting to speed up. And by acceleration, we’re referring to a zero-to-60 time of ten.nine seconds along with a quarter-mile time of eighteen.three seconds at seventy five mph. This really is in the Evo business?
Small-car consumers most likely will probably be much more intrigued within the Mirage’s 37-mpg city/44-mpg freeway gas effectiveness. We could not confirm these figures, although; we managed an unimpressive 26 mpg, mainly simply because we discovered ourselves utilizing each little bit from the one.2’s energy simply to maintain from becoming operate more than by pelotons of shouting cyclists.
