The Mirage, which was rolled out in different Asian markets during the last month of this year (Nov 2012) by Mitsubishi Motor Corporation (MMC), is not projected to hit the Indian market.
It seems that Mitsubishi Motor Corporation is busy with marketing its sport utility vehicle in the nation, after having recently introduced the Pajero Sport.
Mitsubishi Motor Corporation has set up the Mirage particularly for growing market zones comprising China and other Association of Southeast Asian Nations, which are seeing a soaring demand for small, fuel competent compact cars.
Given the small size of the 5 door hatchback, which is catered by 1.2 litre engine, with a total length of 3710 millimeter, breadth of 1665 millimeter and altitude of 1490 millimeter, it seems to be well-matched for these budding market sections.
The vehicle has a noteworthy fuel competence of 22 kilometer per liter, as stated by MMC.
The weight of the exciting vehicle is below 1000 kilogram that turns it a convenient hatchback. It is supposed to carry a price tag between Rs 5 to 6 lakhs, if ever introduced in the domestic market (India).
The Mirage was fabricated as a sub-compact vehicle in the Japanese market from the year 1978 to 2002.
Other names for this car comprised the Lancer Fiore and Colt.
A lot of inventions of this car were marketed in a range of automobile markets. But, back then, the vehicle could not attain great triumph. Afterward, the Mirage was once more witnessed as an innovative concept vehicle at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show.
It is not clear as to whether Mitsubishi Motor Corporation wants to carry on with its Indian associate, Hindustan Motors, or no be stubbled it. By making entry in the hatchback section in the Indian market, the company may have scripted a completely new success tale.
