2015 Mitsubishi Mirage At-A-Glance (Press Release)

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage At-A-Glance
What’s New for 2015

  • Chrome interior accent trim for the HVAC and audio panels (all models)
  • Interior seat fabric upgrade (ES model)
  • Side view mirrors with turn indicators (ES models)
  • Rear-mounted short pole antenna (all models)

With a starting MSRP of only $12,995*, the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage 5-door sub-compacts the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid gasoline vehicle available in America today with an EPA fuel mileage rating of up to 37 mpg city/44 mpg highway/40 mpg combined**.

The Mirage’s exceptional fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive character have helped it capture numerous awards and accolades including:

  • #1 ranking in Cars.com’s “New Cars for Penny Pinchers”
  • “Best All-Around Performance” and “Best Environmental Performance” in the Mini-Compact Class by the Automotive Science Group
  • Named to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) “Greenest Vehicles” list

Equipped with Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) variable valve-timing system, the 1.2-liter 3-cylinder DOHC engine produces 74 bhp and 74 lb.-ft. of torque – the lightweight 2015 Mirage sports a better power-to-weight ratio than the Chevrolet Spark – with a choice of either a smooth-shifting 5-speed manual or the advanced continuously-variable transmission (CVT) with Idle Neutral Logic.

The Mirage’s excellent efficiency can be attributed to numerous engineering and design features including an extremely low-drag exterior(Cd of only 0.28), Electric Power Steering (EPS), a strong but lightweight body/chassis fortified by Mitsubishi Motors’  patented high-tech Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) impact-absorbing safety cell technology.

Standard safety features included on every 2015 Mirage are seven (7) air bags including driver’s knee air bag; Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS); and Active Stability Control (ASC) with Traction Control Logic (TCL).

Every 2015 Mirage includes one of the best protection plans in the entire auto industry: 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty; a fully transferable 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty; 7-year/100,000 mile anti-corrosion/perforation limited warranty; and 5-year/unlimited mileage roadside assistance program

Available fun exterior paint hues for the 2015 Mirage include Sapphire Blue, Kiwi Green, Infra Red, Plasma Purple, Cloud White, Mystic Black, Starlight Silver and Thunder Gray.
