New Mitsubishi Mirage - just a mirage?

NEW CAR REVIEW

Mitsubishi claims its Mirage supermini is the first all sub-100g/km vehicle range in the UK and when coupled with a very low asking price, it does seem an interesting option for the budget-minded driver. It may not be luxuriously finished or especially dynamic to drive but with prices starting at a shade under £8,000* who's complaining? Worth a look? Most definately.New Mitsubishi Mirage available in a wide choice of colours, pop green metallic illustrated

It looks good, it's very keenly priced, and you just know it's going to be metronomically reliable given Mitsubishi’s enviable reputation for dependability. And it's been designed to work very well in town and records some really low numbers when it comes to economy and emissions, with all models scoring less than 100g/km. The manual 1.2-litre model registers just 96g/km, so paying for road tax and the London congestion charge becomes a non-issue.

With a drag factor of just 0.27Cd, the Mirage is also one of the most aerodynamic small cars on sale. The quickest car in the range still manages to extract 68.9 miles from one gallon of unleaded on the combined cycle.

You get the choice of two engines, both petrol-powered. The entry-level powerplant is a 70bhp 1.0-litre unit, which is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Pay a bit more and you can choose a 79bhp 1.2-litre manual car with the option of a CVT automatic gearbox that really takes the drag out of city driving. This engine is quite perky, getting to 60mph in 11.7 seconds and running onto 112mph.

If you want something a little different and your new car budget isn't stretching too far, you’ll find a lot to like here with the new Mitsubishi Mirage
