2017 Mirage GT

Having already bastardized the Eclipse identify by affixing it to a brand new crossover vehicle, there’s palpable worry inside the automotive media that Mitsubishi may attempt the identical with one other iconic property. Whereas FTO and 3000GT don’t have the proper ring to them, we will think about fashionable efficiency SUV sporting an Evolution badge — to our chagrin.

In our fantasies, we think about Mitsubishi bringing again a brand new, more durable-hitting Lancer compact and a menacing mid-sized Galant. Perhaps the Starion might even make an look. Nevertheless, these fashions in all probability wouldn’t promote outdoors the Land of Make Consider even when they have been stellar fashions. Sport utility automobiles and crossovers are the place the cash’s at proper now, and money is strictly what Mitsubishi is after.

Maintaining that in thoughts, a brand new rumor claims the model is working with Nissan to get its Alliance associate’s modular platform contained in the Mirage, or no matter replaces it. The top result will probably be a small crossover with sporting pretensions, which doesn’t sound dangerous within the least. 

Primarily, it’ll be Mitsubishi’s equal of the subsequent Nissan Juke, a mannequin that by no means noticed sufficient love in North America. The report from Japan’s Response (応答) indicated it ought to use the Mirage identify, both changing the mannequin completely or tacking on the Cross appendix and promoting the 2 fashions alongside one another.

There was additionally a rumor earlier this yr that the Lancer identify was being thought-about for a small crossover but to be constructed. This mannequin would definitely match the invoice, so maybe the naming technique hasn’t been settled upon but.

A zero.9-liter turbo engine with three cylinders is presumed to be the bottom engine. That unit is estimated to output round ninety four horsepower, which is an enchancment on the present Mirage however not precisely spectacular. There’s additionally a rumored 1.5 liter turbo diesel and the prospect of an EV mannequin. Mitsubishi additionally intends to implement coupe-like styling so it might compete with the Suzuki Swift.

With these powerplants and that focus on, it’s straightforward to think about this mannequin staying abroad indefinitely. Nevertheless, that would go away Mitsubishi in need of a subcompact in North America. The Outlander Sport is roughly the identical size as the brand new Eclipse Cross and each can be about virtually a foot longer than the hypothetical Mirage crossover.

Both method, the vehicle is meant to debut in 2019 as a 2020 mannequin.
