Mitsubishi Reveals the New 2017 Mirage G4 Sedan

2017 Mirage G4 Sedan

The new 2017 Mirage G4 is going to give you more for less!

 

Back on March 24th, Mitsubishi became the talk of the 2016 New York International Auto Show, when the Japanese automaker finally revealed its all-new 2017 Mirage G4 sedan.

The Mirage G4 is basically just the sedan version of the Mirage hatchback, and it even comes with the same 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine rated at 78 horsepower. Consumers will have the choice between a five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT).

While the Mirage hatchback’s trunk offers 17.2 cubic feet of storage space, that number drops to just 12.3-cubic feet for the G4 sedan, but what’s a loss of five cubic feet when you gain the attractive exterior styling of the sedan version? The 2017 Mirage G4 is also compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are premium features not typically found in a vehicle that carries a starting MSRP of $14,830.

Consumers should also be happy to hear the Mirage G4 sedan will be backed by Mitsubishi’s strong warranties, which includes a 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty, a fully transferable 5-year/60,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty, 5-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance, and a 7-year/100,000 mile anti-corrosion perforation limited warranty.

“A few years ago we entered the subcompact segment with the Mirage hatchback and its popularity with consumers has grown every year with its combination of top fuel economy, attractive pricing and one of the industry’s best new car warranties. The new Mirage G4 repeats that value equation in a four-door sedan package,” said MMNA executive vice president, Don Swearingen. “The Mirage hatchback and now the Mirage G4 sedan will form a formidable one-two punch in the subcompact segment.”

The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 sedan is scheduled to on sale in the United States later this spring. Tell us what you think of Mitsubishi’s new compact sedan in the comment section below or visit us at Randall Mitsubishi in San Angelo, TX.

Mitsubishi Aims to Conquer the US Market with the 2017 Outlander PHEV

2017 Outlander PHEV

The new Outlander PHEV has everything the Outlander has and more!

 

After countless delays, Mitsubishi finally revealed the 2017 Outlander PHEV at last month’s New York International Auto Show.

The Outlander PHEV doesn’t look much different from the normal Outlander model, except it wears different badges and also comes equipped with a charging port, but the PHEV version is actually much different when it comes to the vehicle’s mechanics.

While the regular Outlander model offers the choice between either a 2.4-liter four-cylinder or V6 engine, the PHEV SUV comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, as well as two additional electric motors, with one located on each axle. The 2017 Outlander PHEV also features a regenerative braking system that brings more power to its 12-kWh lithium-ion battery.

The new Outlander PHEV also features a unique version of the company’s Super All-Wheel Control system, and there are three distinct drive systems that the SUV can automatically switch between, depending on road and weather conditions: EV, which only uses electric power; series hybrid, which uses electric power with generator operation; and parallel hybrid, which uses power from the gasoline engine and the two electric motors.

Other noteworthy features available for the 2017 Outlander PHEV include blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert and a multi-around view camera monitor, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

“What makes the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV so special is that it offers the best of both worlds with a balance of electric efficiency and long-range practicality,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president, MMNA. “Mitsubishi put its engineering prowess and knowledge to work to create a vehicle that meets the demand of a growing number of consumers who need a car that is capable and environmentally friendly. The Outlander PHEV will offer a high electric range and combined miles per gallon (MPG).”

While Mitsubishi stopped short of providing exact fuel economy numbers, the Japanese automaker did say the new Outlander PHEV will reach US dealerships later this fall.
