THE latest Mitsubishi Mirage supermini is now on sale in the UK with prices starting from a competitive Â£10,550 - almost Â£1,000 cheaper than the previous model.
Three trim levels are available with the five model range topping out at £14,855 for a First Edition Mirage with automatic transmission.
The new car has an upgraded 1.2-litre, three-cylinder engine which develops 80hp and is rated at up to 56.5mpg with emissions of 113g/km under the new WLTP testing programme.
Performance figures for the entry level manual Verve model are 12.6 seconds 0 to 62mph acceleration with a top speed of 112mph.
The new Mirage has much more grown up looks than before with chunkier bumpers creating a more solid appearance on the road.
Inside, there are new-look door trims and switch panels, high-contrast instruments and Mitsubishi Motors' Smartphone Display Audio (SDA) system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen for improved legibility and ease of use.
The SDA system offers full smartphone connectivity including Bluetooth hands-free calling, as well as both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus built-in satellite navigation.
