Achieving a lofty EPA fuel mileage rating of up to 37 mpg city/44 mpg highway, the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is the most fuel efficient non-hybrid gasoline vehicle available in America today with a combined fuel economy of 40 mpg.
Add into the mix the 2015 Mirage’s plentiful standard equipment package, welcome available upscale features, and very affordable pricing, and Mitsubishi Motors’ 5-door subcompact makes the ideal new car for a wide array of automotive consumers – first-time drivers, retirees, short-hop urban dwellers who live/work in the city or those with marathon commutes.
Priced at a remarkably low starting MSRP of only $12,995*, its extreme fuel efficiency has helped the cute and fun-to-drive Mirage capture numerous awards, with value-based accolades coming from Cars.com (ranked #1 in Cars.com’s “New Cars for Penny Pinchers”), the Automotive Science Group (“Best All-Around Performance” and “Best Environmental Performance” in the Mini-Compact Class) and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (Mirage named to the ACEEE’s “Greenest Vehicles” list).
In fact, when Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) held a Las Vegas-to-MMNA headquarters hypermiling driving event in March 2014 with select top-tier members of the automotive media, the winning driver made the trip averaging just under 75 mpg!
A great thing gets even better with the Mitsubishi Mirage receiving several equipment upgrades for its sophomore year. These items include:
• New chrome interior trim accents for the audio and HVAC panels (all models)
• New rear-mounted short pole antenna (all models)
• New interior seat fabric (ES model)
• New side view mirrors with turn indicators (ES model)
Along with its low price and high EPA-rated fuel economy, both the entry-level 2015 Mirage DE and the upscale Mirage ES boast an extraordinary level of features and accessories in their standard equipment packages.
Among the items included on the DE trim level are a sensational 4 speaker 140-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with USB input; automatic climate control; upscale-looking rich high-gloss piano black center console trim; stylish rear spoiler; keyless entry with panic alarm; tilt steering; power windows with driver’s side auto-up/down; variable intermittent wipers; convenient split folding rear seat; rear seat heater ducts; body-colored power side mirrors and more.
