Such innovations allowed to increase the maximum power of the power unit up to 78 hp. The gearbox will be classic, but, as an option, for an additional fee, the company’s dealers will offer a variator. The increased braking system increased the peak power of the brakes, but the drum brakes mounted on the rear wheels were not increased too much. In addition, the company’s engineers have revised the suspension of the car, having carried out some refinements in it. Despite numerous changes, something in the model of the 2018 model year will remain unchanged, namely the acceptable price and the minimum fuel consumption for a car of this class.

As already mentioned, in the market there will be two complete sets of budget GLX and the best in the set of functions Mirage G4 GLS. In both models will be available to choose from both mechanical five-speed, and automatic CVT gearbox.

The turning radius of the Mirage G4 sedan is 4.8 m. The front brakes are fitted with ventilated discs, and behind the drum ones. For an economical and compact car, the engine would have been moderately, but considering that the Mirage G4 sedan, one could add one cylinder and slightly add the horses. For long journeys the car can simply not sustain.

The manufacturer offers the car only in the North American market. The long-awaited novelty will go on sale in the spring of 2018. But to date, information about the prices of the car is not complete and will be available a little later. It is known only that for the model in the base set will be assigned a price of $ 12 995 to $17 500. This novelty is designed for consumers of the younger generation and middle income.

COMPONENTS AND PRICES

The volume of the Mirage G4 fuel tank is 42 liters. regardless of the configuration. The weight of the Mirage G4 is from 870 to 905 kg. depending on the equipment. The volume of the trunk is 450 liters. If you are looking for a small four-door sedan without excess at a low price, Mitsubishi has a suitable model for you. Mirage G4 is almost a sedan version of the hatchback with the added boot. Speaking in general, the design, of course, can not be called bright, but for this price category it looks pretty nice. Mitsubishi does not disclose the volume of the trunk, but it must significantly exceed the trunk of the hatchback, which is 481/1330 liters standard and with folded seats, respectively. The same 1,2-liter petrol 3-cylinder engine is borrowed from a hatchback and develops 78 hp. and 100 Nm of torque. The engine is aggregated with the front drive through a 5-speed manual or optional stepless variator. According to Mitsubishi, the Mirage G4 2018 demonstrates the best fuel efficiency in its class and the lowest CO2 emissions. The dimensions of the body foreshadowed a wide suspension and medium-sized wheels, but all this is installed on 14 “wheels for the GLX configuration, and 15” wheels for the GLS. We can say that the car turned out to be small in width, a little high and long. From the side of aerodynamics and exchange rate stability, the Mirage G4 will not be in better conditions. Narrow and high indicates that the car will not be stable at high speeds, especially with foreign influences of air.
