Mitsubishi Mirage prices announced
Mitsubishi's new supermini comes in three trims and offers a choice of two three-cylinder engines, with the range-topping version costing £12,999. However, Mitsubishi is offering a £1000 discount across the Mirage range for the foreseeable future, bringing the prices down to £7999 to £11,999.
There's a choice between a 1.0- and 1.2-litre petrol engine, with neither emitting more than 100g/km of CO2.
The 70bhp 1.0-litre engine is only available on the entry-level Mirage model. It gets from 0-62mph in 13.6 seconds, has average economy of 67.3mpg and emits 96g/km of CO2. It comes with a manual gearbox and there's no automatic option available.
The '2' and '3' trim cars come with the 1.2-litre engine, which includes engine stop-start technology. Mirage 2 cars complete the 0-62mph dash in 11.7 seconds, while the '3' takes 12.8 seconds. Buyers have a choice between a manual and a CVT automatic gearbox on the top-level model
Emissions for the '2' are 96g/km, with average economy of 68.9mpg, while the bigger 15-inch alloy wheels on the '3' increase its CO2 output to 100g/km and average economy falls to 65.7mpg. The automatic version emits 95g/km and manages 68.9mpg.
The £8999 entry-level version gets front electric windows, a CD player with USB connectivity, a tyre repair kit and steel wheels.
Mirage 2 adds manual air-conditioning, remote central locking, four electric windows, automatic lights and wipers, privacy glass and body-coloured mirrors and door handles.
Range-topping '3' cars add front and rear parking sensors, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearlever, keyless entry and start, automatic air-conditioning and 15-inch alloys.
