When the Mirage nameplate vanished from Mitsubishi’s lineup for a year, the brand announced it would be returning for the 2017 model year. But Mitsubishi had a trick up its sleeve. Instead of just revamping the traditional hatchback, the automaker also debuted the 2017 MitsubishiMirage G4, a sedan variant of the nameplate that provided all the affordability and smart features of the Mirage with the practical, family-friendly nature of the sedan class.
As a sedan that exudes more athletic vibes, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 leads the pack when it comes to fuel economy, just like its hatchback sibling. The 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine can be mated to either a standard manual transmission or an available Continuously Variable Transmission, or CVT; the latter gives the Mirage G4 its top-of-the-line fuel rating of up to 42 MPG on the highway*, the best efficiency of any non-hybrid on the road.
The gap year between the 2015 and 2017 model years of the Mitsubishi Mirage allowed the brand to give the nameplate’s model lineup some serious upgrades, and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 provides drivers with awesome connectivity features like Bluetooth® wireless, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an available premium sound system, and even a rear back-up camera and available keyless entry system for enhanced safety. Top quality waits behind the wheel of the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 if you take it for a test drive.
