The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage remains one of the lowest-priced new cars on the North American market. One version of the Mirage hatchback is the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid gasoline-powered vehicle available in North America.
Mitsubishi has upgraded seat materials for 2017 and swapped in a new steering wheel and some upgraded trims and switchgear. The most important part of the interior is the infotainment system, which now includes an optional 300-watt Rockford-Fosgate stereo system.
The Mirage will also now offer both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a first for any Mitsubishi. The new details definitely make the Mirage less chintzy, but it’s still reminiscent of 1990s economy-car fundamentals.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage has received a new front end this year, which improves its appearance from the bland, generic, anonymous front end it previously featured. It is a huge improvement over the current styling, with most of the changes focusing on the front fascia.
Mirage cuts through darkness and fog with the new fog lights and Bi-Xenon HID headlights. There is a new grille, new headlights, a new bumper and a new hood. It has given a new set of much better looking wheels.
Mitsubishi offers five-speed manual and CVT automatic transmissions. The 2017 Mirage is powered by a 78-horsepower 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine. The Mitsubishi Mirage is easy to maneuver in dense urban settings. The engine produces 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque.
Standard safety features for the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage include four-wheel antilock brakes (front discs, rear drums), front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag and Active stability control. A Rearview camera is standard on the SE and GT, while front and rear parking sensors are optional on all trim levels.
Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body utilizes crumple zones that route and absorb energy during high-impact collisions. Strategic reinforcements at key body points complement its side-impact door beams, giving your Mitsubishi a stable, secure base that’s worth its weight in safety.
