Although the Mitsubishi Mirage is a fairly new model, having been introduced for the first time in 2014, the automaker has announced that the small hatchback will not be a part of its 2016 lineup. Instead, the Mitsubishi Mirage production is set to take a one-year hiatus, with the automaker promising that the popular hatchback will be back and better than ever for 2017.
Mitsubishi’s plan is to unveil an updated 2017 Mirage in the spring of 2016, in the meantime unloading additional 2015 models it has on hand without sacrificing sales. It’s a win-win for Mitsubishi, who won’t have to build and market a 2016 model, but will maintain continuous stock of the vehicle until the 2017 model makes its debut next year.
Although there is very little information on the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage’s updates, Car and Driver reported that a four-door sedan variant will be available, and there will be significant upgrades to the powertrain and chassis.
