2016 Mitsubishi Mirage

The Mitsubishi Mirage won’t be returning for the 2016 model year, but will be available for the 2017 model year

Since the Mitsubishi Mirage made its debut in the car industry as a 2014 model, it has quickly become a notable vehicle in the brand’s lineup. As the Japanese carmaker continues to focus more on SUVs in its lineup, the Mirage has become even more important as one of the smallest cars Mitsubishi offers. Now, though, Mitsubishi is putting the Mirage on hold for the 2016 model year.

Still Not Sold? Here’s why you should check out the Mirage

The small hatchback won’t be going away for good, according to Car and Driver. Though it is being excluded from Mitsubishi’s 2016 lineup, the Mirage will still come back in 2017 with a variety of changes. This includes a new powertrain and a few chassis updates, though the actual specifics of these changes are unknown as of this writing.

Along with these upgrades, the Mirage will also offer something extremely different than the current Mirage hatchback—a sedan body style. When the 2017 model returns in the spring of 2016, consumers will have the option of choosing between the feisty hatchback and spunky sedan. The sedan body style will look similar to that of the Mitsubishi Attrage, which is sold in other parts of the world.
