We hope you caught the sarcasm in our title, but the Mitsubishi Mirage is apparently going on a short hiatus from the US market–oh the travesty.
According to CARandDRIVER, the cause of the break is to allow Mitsubishi to make a range of changes to the chassis and powertrain. Though we’re not exactly positive that’s enough to make the Mirage any more interesting than it currently is, if you can even call it that.
The new hatch will surface in 2016 as a 2017 model with the launch of a new sedan version of the Mirage. Will it be enough to become a competitive vehicle in the economy car segment, or will it remain to be mirage to be overshadowed by the already plenty of competitive options out there? As such, the Mirage is only better than a pair of roller skates, or perhaps a pogo stick as a form of transportation.
Only time will tell.
