Mitsubishi cars have been popular in Australia for many years. The new 2013 Mitsubishi Mirage is no exception. This fuel efficient, five door super mini offers an aerodynamic car that makes it first in its class. But the smooth shape is not all that this car has going for it. Here, we will explore more about the fantastic 2013 Mitsubishi Mirage and what it can offer you.
Slim, Aerodynamic Shape
The new Mitsubishi Mirage features over-sized spoilers on the roof, the slim front grilles and slab sided flanks. All of these features contribute to the Mirage’s fantastic drag coefficient of 0.27Cd. This makes the car quiet, efficient and stable at high speeds.
While the outside of the car may seem boxy, there is a good reason for its unusual look. This shape means the front part of the car has plenty of room. However, it is in the back seat of the car where you are in for the biggest surprise. The rear bench seat offers plenty of room so you and your passengers can easily stretch out, making the Mirage perfect for long trips.
The boot offers 235L of space, which is enough room for most people to pack up for a trip to the beach or on a holiday.
The dashboard has a premium look and feel. The three-model offers a piano black dash, as well as a leather steering wheel, leather gear shift knob and climate control. The range topper also features electric windows, parking sensors and keyless ignition.
Driving the 2013 Mitsubishi Mirage
Sharing its name with a fighter jet, the Mirage is smooth and versatile. The steering is extremely light and features a tight turning radius of just 4.6m, making it easy to get in and out of even the smallest of spots.
The Mirage zips through town with its smaller size and great steering capacity. The 1.2 litre engine offers a decent amount of power for the highway. The car boasts a 65.7mpg and drivers are encouraged to use the eco-metre located in the binnacle to help save on petrol.
With so many great features, it is no wonder the 2013 Mitsubishi Mirage is already a firm favourite. For more information about the Mirage, visit your Bartons Mitsubishi.
