Vehicle Profile: 2013 Mitsubishi Mirage

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.

Inside Features

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.

The All New 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander has Arrived

The Mitsubishi Outlander is one of the most successful Mitsubishi cars on the market for a reason. This midsize SUV has quickly become a favourite among Aussies as it has a lot of great features and high safety standards. The 2013 Outlander is packed with new technology delivering even more driving pleasure. It also has a massively improved fuel range as well as greater passenger safety.

The new Mitsubishi Outlander is the first model that was designed from the beginning for both diesel and petrol engines. It offers a smooth 2.2L diesel engine with great low down torque, combined with a 5.81/100 km fuel economy.

Inside the Mitsubishi Outlander, the interior offers a soft-touch premium feel and look throughout the entire vehicle. Spacious and modern, it is perfect for families and adventurers alike. With rear seats that can be folded down, you can effortlessly create an extraordinary amount of space for storage in no time at all. The space in the back can be accessed easily from the power tailgate that is operated from your smart key.

Smart Fuel Economy

Mitsubishi cars are known for running clean and efficient engines, and the Outlander is no exception.  The newly designed engine is paving the way for much lower fuel use as well as emissions. It is possible to travel 1,000km on just a single tank of gas in the vehicle. The economic achievement stems from the improvement in the aerodynamics of the vehicle which provides 7 per cent less drag than before.

Safety Features

The new e-assist technology in the vehicle helps you avoid a possible accident on the highway. When you use the cruise control the car will remain at a pre-selected safe distance from the vehicle that is in front of you. The forward collision mitigation system will sense if there is the possibility of collision and will prime the brakes as well as alert the driver to the situation. If the driver fails to brake, the collision mitigation system will kick in.

Other technological safety advances in the new Mitsubishi Outlander include xenon headlamps with wide vision. This allows for lighting up twice as much road as the conventional headlamp. The 125 degree rear view monitoring system is integrated into the touch screen system of the vehicle to help you back out of tight spots.  It is anticipated that the Outlander will receive a five-star safety rating based on these great new features.

The ability to do anything and go anywhere capability of this vehicle is what provides it with the greatest appeal as five of the six models have 4WD, giving you the confidence to go off road.
