Mitsubishi Mirage prices announced

The Mitsubishi Mirage costs from 8999 and is available to order now.

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.

Order books are open now.
