•2017 Mirage features new exterior design as well as added performance enhancements
Today Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) made the world debut of the 2016 Outlander Sport and 2017 Mirage at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Both vehicles, which are rooted in the brand's principles of unmatched value, attractive pricing, and leading new vehicle and powertrain warranties, feature new designs which bring a unified look to the Mitsubishi lineup.
'North America is a vital market to Mitsubishi Motors, as evidenced by the two world introductions we made today at the LA Auto Show,' said Don Swearingen, executive vice president, MMNA. 'Outlander Sport leads the brand in overall sales, and the improvements debuted today will further its demand. The Mirage is a vehicle that has already gained popularity wîth its affordable and practical appeal, and that will certainly carry over into the 2017 model year wîth its improved looks and performance.'
The 2016 Outlander Sport boasts a number of improvements including a redesigned §teering wheel, new 6.1' Display Audio, high quality seat fabrics, new power folding side mirrors wîth LED turn indicators and a new 18-inch alloy wheel design. The bold Mitsubishi 'Dynamic Shield' front design concept ties the Outlander Sport to its bigger sibling—the seven passenger Outlander—bringing a cohesive design language to the brand.
Also revealed today was the re-designed 2017 Mirage featuring Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™--the first Mitsubishi vehicle to get this popular infotainment system in the Ú.S. The Mirage's handling has been improved by optimizing the spring rate and damping force of the shock absorbers while adding stiffness to the front end to achieve stability improvements. In addition, bigger diameter brake discs are used in the front and the rear brake drums have increased as well. Interior enhancements include new seat fabrics, gauge cluster, §teering wheel and an available 300-watt Rockford Fosgate™ audio system.
