The 2015 Mirage five-door compact hatchback has earned the top fuel economy rating of any non-hybrid or non-electric vehicle in America. The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage’s fuel economy is rated at an impressive 37 mpg city and 44 mpg highway, which is about the same as many hybrid models (but available at a fraction of the cost).
The Mirage has a price tag even lower than most used vehicles, which tend to retail for around $17,000. In comparison, the five-speed manual Mirage is available as low as $13,805, which makes it the third cheapest new car in America. The super-efficient Mirage with a CVT goes for just $14,905. In terms of safety features, the car comes with electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, and an abundance of air bags that keep you and your passengers protected.
The Detroit News says the light Mirage comes with impressive standard features that consist of a “rear spoiler, power outside mirrors, micron air filter, carpeted floor mats, keyless entry with panic alarm, power windows and door locks and air conditioning.” The car’s audio system can accommodate both CDs and MP3s, and every Mirage comes with a USB port.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is one of the coolest vehicles we’ve seen at Mountaineer Mitsubishi. It’s a 2.0-liter four-cylinder hooked up to an electric motor and Twin Motor 4WD system for enhanced power and drivability.
It perhaps hasn’t caught on as well as Mitsubishi would have liked, but that all changed at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, when the automaker revealed the new Outlander PHEV Concept-S, which adds massive improvements to the compact SUV.
The update includes a new front-end design, which now features bold chromed accent moldings on either side of the badge and wraparound headlamps. Inside, black wood grain trim with silver accent and soft, hand-stitched fine leather just beckon you to stay.
Under the hood, the new concept is more or less the same, though we would argue Mitsu doesn’t need to fix or change something that is far from broken. But thanks to a redesigned image, however, the Outlander PHEV finally looks the part.
If reports from Autocar UK are correct, then the outgoing Mitsubishi Lancer Evo’s replacement will be a high-performance hybrid SUV. Mitsubishi product boss Kanenori Okamoto told Autocar UK that “the Lancer Evolution will not exist as we know it. It will be replaced in spirit by an SUV with high performance.”
As torquenews.com points out, this should really come as no surprise, since Mitsubishi Motor Sports has kept their focus on developing electric technology, and has performed particularly well in the motor sports segment. Earlier this year, Mitsubishi Motor Sports won an impressive victory at Pikes Peak with the MiEV Evolution III, and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is being tested on tough rally courses in the Asian Pacific.
One thing Mitsubishi Lancer Evo enthusiasts are hoping for is another platform built to easily accept aftermarket upgrades. The Lancer Evo was specifically designed for fans who like to tune and upgrade their power, and Mitsubishi made it easy for enthusiasts to build on their car’s performance. Evo fans have made it clear that they would be more likely to consider purchasing a new PHEV SUV if Mitsubishi continues to support aftermarket enhancements.
We don’t yet know exactly what will replace the beloved Lancer Evolution when it leaves the Mountaineer Mitsubishi showroom after this year, but we have our sights set on the Concept XR-PHEV Evolution. What do you think?
