Mitsubishi Mirage to be Showcased at Paris Motor Show
Mitsubishi Mirage will soon be showcased at the Paris Motor Show which and will be made available in Europe in February 2013. The vehicle is currently available in Thailand and from there it is exported to Japan as well. The European market model won’t be any different except in terms of the name. The Europe market Mirage is expected to make its way in, under the “Colt” identity.
Mirage is known for its small size and maneuverability. The hatchback is just 3.7m long, 1.6m wide and 1.4m high. The hatch is powered by a 3-cylinder petrol motor which comes with MIVEC and is mated to 5-speed manual transmission.
Since the car is within 4 meters with 1.0-litre powermill, it is eligible for the small car excise duty concession in India. It is highly unlikely for the German car maker to get in the petrol hatch in India due to the varying petrol prices, but what future holds, none can predict.
