A little powerhouse under the bonnet

The Mitsubishi Mirage is our small hatchback that offers excellent fuel economy. It's all down to a highly efficient 1.2 litre MIVEC engine. Discover more about the Mitsubishi Mirage engine.

Fuel efficiency

A compact engine that sips fuel

Do you want responsive performance, or fuel efficiency? With the Mitsubishi Mirage you have both. Whether commuting to work, shopping in the city or taking a road trip, you'll enjoy the sporty handling and the way the needle on the fuel gauge hardly seems to move.


The power under the bonnet

Powering the Mirage is a highly responsive 1.2-litre MIVEC engine. It offers an outstanding drive, allowing you to weave nimbly through both city streets and country roads with ease.


The numbers tell the story

The Mirage Design Pro produces the maximum output of 52 kW (71 PS) at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 102 Nm (75 lb.ft) at 4,000 rpm.


Two great transmission choices

The Mirage features two transmission options to suit your driving needs. Choose between the 5-speed manual transmission for direct control, or the ultra-efficient and smooth Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) which offers smooth acceleration and efficiently selected gear ratios in all driving conditions.


Total control on any journey

A strong and reliable manual transmission, giving you five speeds for total control on any journey. The quick and easy gear change, combined with light clutch control makes for a sportier feel in the city and on the country lanes.


Smooth acceleration every time

The Mirage Design Pro is available with Continuously Variable Transmission, or CVT, which will let you enjoy smooth acceleration as well as efficiently selected gear ratios in all driving conditions. The INVECS-III* CVT wide-ratio transmission maintains optimal rpm for high performance and fuel economy.

* Intelligent & Innovative Vehicle Electronic Control System III.


High power output. Low fuel consumption

The Mirage comes equipped with a highly efficient MIVEC engine. MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system) is the name for engines equipped with a variable valve timing mechanism developed by Mitsubishi Motors. We’ve been focussing on valve timing technology because we discovered it's the way to achieve high power output, low fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions.


Smooth stop and starts

Auto Stop & Go reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by automatically shutting off the engine when the vehicle is stationary, such as when you're waiting at traffic lights. When you remove your foot from the brake pedal, the engine restarts immediately.


A fuel-efficient drive

To show you exactly how fuel-efficient your driving is, we created Eco Drive Assist system. It's very immediate and visual: the more green lights you see on the dash display, the more eco-friendly your driving is. This not only helps you save fuel, in the long run, you'll also save money.
