Mitsubishi is working on to introduce the all-new Mirage according to a report from HeadlightMag, the new generation model will debut towards the end of this year.
The Mirage is currently in its 6th generation that was unveiled at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. The next generation model is expected to break its cover at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show that will take place from 23rd October to 4th November.
The rendering published by HeadlightMag reveals some similarities with the new Nissan Mircra, specially the side profile. The new Mitsubishi Mirage will grow substantially with an aggressive design that brings it closer to rest of the Mitsubishi models as far as the looks are concerned. According to Trevor Mann, Chief Operating Officer of Mitsubishi, the redesigned Mirage will likely sit on the alliance’s new CMF-B platform, which debuted in the Renault Clio V recently.
The current Mirage comes equipped with 1.0 and 1.2 liter three cylinder engines with 5-speed manual and CVT transmission on offer. At this stage though, there is no word on the engines & other technical details for the next generation model.
The Mitsubishi Mirage also comes in sedan version, and the upcoming model should also have a 4-door variant going against the likes of Mazda2 Sedan, Honda City and the Toyota Vios in competition driven markets.
