Despite the many controversies arising around the release of 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4, you have to applaud the manufacturer’s efforts to fix what they have done wrong. The previous model and design of 2014 Mirage G4 was somewhat considered a failure, a design that was in fact despised by a lot of people – although some are quite positive about it.
With the new release of the G4 (after the company has skipped the 2016 production), it is hoped that they have learned their lesson and come up with a clever and wiser solution. The new Mirage is said to deliver a better performance with a unique four door style for a hatchback line. The engine arrangement may be similar, with the 78 hp of power as the output and manual five speed transmission although there will be an extra spending for the CVT option. The technology for Android Auto or Apple Carplay will be standard for the SE and optional for the ES.
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Promising Features and Specs
Mitsubishi seems to be pretty optimistic for the release of the new 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4. With 35 mpg for the city and 42 mpg for the highway, the new Mirage G4 has some of the positive appeal – at least enough to counteract the negative comments. The output is still the same, 78 hp of power, which may not be much. But then again, this Mirage G4 isn’t designed as a sporty or racing vehicle – it is more like the urban vehicle – so such an output isn’t bad. It is able to reach 60 mph within 12.8 second with 100 mph as the top speed. Again, it may not be super impressive but it should be enough for the city ride.
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Design
Mitsubishi should learn by now that American auto market prefers the sedan to the hatchback, no matter how good the design is. And with the new vehicle designed in the sedan style (which people say look similar to the design of Prius) and with the accompaniment of the impressive fuel economy system, this one may have a brighter future than the 2014 model. Some may be skeptical with the nerdy design but you have to admit that Mitsubishi has done quite a good job so far.
The new 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 comes with longer wheelbase (around 3.9 inches), allowing the back seat area to enjoy roomier space. The extra space is also available for the trunk and cargo so you can say that the new Mirage G4 is more accommodating (in terms of space) for passengers.
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Features
Expect new improvements on the features with this line, including power windows, push button ignition, auto climate control, remote proximity-sending lock, cruise control, backup camera, audio control, and so much more. It also comes with infotainment system of 6.5 inch display screen and compatible with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay technology. The new 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 may not be much but it is pretty decent and enough – not to mention that the base price doesn’t exceed $15,000.
