Mitsubishi unveiled the new Mirage hatch at the New York Auto Show. This concept, unveiled at the Bangkok Motor Show, previews the sedan variant.
Mitsubishihas unveiled the Concept G4 at the Bangkok Motor Show with the Japanesecarmaker billing it as a “new compact eco car sedan.” Based on theMirage hatchback that debuted last week in New York, the concept will soonenter production and be rolled out globally. Like the Mirage, its biggestselling point is impressive fuel efficiency, which it achieves by combining alightweight RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body and the same compact 1.2-literengine and CVT transmission found in the new Mirage.
Combined with a host of weight saving measures made throughout the car, Mitsubishi claims the Concept G4 is the lightest in its class. The autommaker also says the car's short nose, sporting the three-diamond motif in the diamond-cut front grille, affords drivers better maneuverability and forward vision, yet Mitsubishi made the concept quite tall for an interior space that is “among the most generous in its class.” It boasts large doors for easy ingress and egress, higher seats and more room for rear passengers. Pricing details and the production date has yet to be announced.
