Honda wasn’t the only Japanese auto maker debuting something at the Montreal Auto Show. Mitsubishi debuted the Canadian-spec version of the new Mirage – without giving it a name.
North American spec versions of the tiny Mitsu include a new 1.2L three-cylinder engine, rather than the 1.0L unit employed in world markets. Despite the bump in displacement, the Mirage puts out a whopping 74 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque. Although we at TTAC are against re-purposing all or part of a press release, we’ll make an exception this time, to illustrate just how enthusiastic Mitsubishi Canada is about this car.
Displayed in striking Green Metallic paint, the subcompact was unveiled by Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada (MMSCAN) president & CEO Shin Fujioka to gathered media: “The new 2014 Mitsubishi is fun, efficient, greener and affordable. We can’t wait!” he said.
