Affordable In-Car Technology in the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage

Modern drivers want modern features in their cars. However, if you are on a tight budget, you might discover that the technology you want is out of reach. This won’t happen if you choose the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage. It comes with cost-efficient in-car technology thanks to its low pricing and long list of standard features.

The base model comes equipped with a big seven-inch touchscreen system, Bluetooth connectivity, and a rearview camera. Higher trims add features like Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM, navigation, and even a Rockford Fosgate® sound system.

Driving the Mirage is an efficient 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine. This engine is so efficient, that when paired with the continuously variable transmission (CVT), it delivers an EPA-estimated 37 mpg city and 43 mpg highway.* This makes it the most fuel-efficient, non-hybrid vehicle in the United States. Just image what you could do with all the money you save from buying a Mirage.

Another thing that makes the Mirage so much fun is its wide range of color options. Choose from hues such as Wine Red, Sunrise, Infrared, and Saphire Blue.

Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept Debuts in Paris

Mitsubishi electrified the 2016 Paris Motor Show earlier this month with the most recent of its plug-in electric SUV concept lineup—the Mitsubishi GT-PHEV. Also known as the Grand Tourer concept, this model is a large and luxurious SUV that has an eco-friendly powertrain that is sure to impress with those families looking to go green.

 

The Mitsubishi GT-PHEV concept styling reflects Mitsubishi’s newest design language. Its Dynamic Shield grille is similar to that of the Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport models, adding a touch of modern sophistication to the model’s silhouette. Its low roofline gives the concept model a couple-lie appearance, while its maroon-colored roof stands out from the rest of its body.

 

Under the hood, Mitsubishi has combined a 2.5-liter gasoline engine with three electric motors. One of these motors helps the gasoline engine power the front wheels, while the other two are used to drive the rear wheels. By doing this, the GT-PHEV concept has an all-wheel-drive system. This combined powertrain also has a 25-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which gives it enough range for 75 electric-only miles.

 

This isn’t the first plug-in hybrid vehicle Mitsubishi has introduced to the public. It currently has an Outlander Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) model on sale in Europe, which it is trying to bring to the American market sometime soon.

 

While there’s no word yet as to whether the GT-PHEV will enter production or not, here’s hoping that the Japanese carmaker brings a more eco-friendly vehicle to the United States.

Mitsubishi Night Drive Immerses Users in a Dual-Screen Experience

The all-new 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 takes the fuel-efficient subcompact hatchback and adds a lot of excitement. The G4 comes in four-door sedan form and is packed with excellent high-tech features that will make you feel like you’re driving something a lot more expensive.

Mitsubishi is now offering a unique interactive experience that will let people “test drive” the Mirage G4 without even leaving home. Through the Mitsubishi Night Drive campaign, people can use their laptop and smartphone simultaneously to drive through a unique course to test some of the G4’s features.

At the end of the test, the driver is given a score in the form of a Personality Type, such as Mirage Master, Wallet Watcher, or Learner’s Permit. The driver can use the interactive film to test the rearview camera, turning radius, fuel efficiency, Hill Start Assist, and more.

“The Mirage G4 offers consumers a package that is unmatched in the industry—with up to 42 highway MPG, best-in-class legroom, and of course our 10-year, 100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty—all starting under $14,000,” said Francine Harsini, senior director, Marketing, MMNA. “Our Night Drive campaign is a fitting way to launch this vehicle with the opportunity for our target audience to engage with the car through their smartphones.”

While a virtual test drive is pretty cool, nothing can beat the real thing. Now that you’ve got a taste of what the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 has to offer, take it out for a real test drive today at Bell Mitsubishi.

The Mitsubishi Ground Tourer Concept: A New Plug-In Hybrid SUV

Mitsubishi enthusiasts may want to sit down before hearing this: there may be a new high-end SUV on the way. Mitsubishi has been teasing a shadowy photo of a sporty SUV and the brand recently announced a new concept to appear in Paris later in the year. Best of all, the new model will have a plug-in hybrid powertrain, unique for its segment.

According to Automotive News, the Mitsubishi Ground Tourer Concept will have a low-riding body, a coupe style, and athletic fenders. The lighting is sharp and modern on both the front and the rear, while a stunning silhouette has an aura of power. Although there is nothing official yet, Mitsubishi may be releasing the new Ground Tourer in a year or so as part of a larger initiative to develop more green cars by 2020.

“Mitsubishi touts the concept as the latest expression of its push to become a pure SUV player, as the Japanese carmaker tries to build a comeback around its traditional strength in utility vehicles such as the Pajero and Outlander,” said the editors at Automotive News.

This is especially good news since the Galant and Eclipse Coupe have been dropped, leaving many to wonder what would take their place. With a high-power and off-road capable plug-in hybrid SUV on the way, this could just redefine the industry. Instead of gas-guzzling sports cars and SUVs that look more like tanks than cars, Mitsubishi is striving to give customers what they want—all wrapped in an eco-friendly package.

Check Out These Key Outlander Features

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is loaded with tons of features designed and built to offer you the best driving experience, whether you’re looking for entertainment, performance, comfort, convenience, or more. Nothing compares to the experience of test-driving it for yourself, but we’ve taken the time to put the spotlight on a few key Outlander features.

 

First of all, the 2016 Outlander is designed for performance. Even though the Outlander Sport has the upper hand in this category, the base Outlander still offers fun maneuvering and a smooth ride without compromising any of its SUV functionality. Two engine and transmission options, Super All-Wheel Control, and high-end handling add to the experience.

 

Additionally, interior comforts include standard space for seven passengers, as well as versatile seating, a more quiet and relaxing cabin than ever, and dual-zone automatic climate control. All the tech is centrally-located and intuitive, so the driver can access everything from their music library to their standard rearview camera through the 6.1” touchscreen. Drivers can even opt for Eco Mode that allows you to switch to a more fuel efficient driving mode.

 

These are only a few key Outlander features, and the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander has many more to offer, so make sure you do your research and take one for a spin. You might be surprised!

A Turbo-Charged Mitsubishi Future?

Mitsubishi was the premiere automaker when it came to turbocharged engines but the brand has dropped the powertrain over the past decade or two. Now, the Japanese automaker wants to bring back the turbocharged engine that put them on the map. Even better, the first new engine will roll out in a new vehicle as well.

The first off the lot is a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that will power Mitsubishi’s newest midsized crossover. Expected to hit dealerships in 2018, it’s sure to set the pace for the next generation of engines.

That crossover is likely to fit between the Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport. There’s more good news for turbocharged fans.

Word has it Mitsubishi is considering putting a 1.1-liter turbocharged engine under the hood of the latest Mirage. Not only that but there very well could be a larger turbocharged engine powering the next-gen Outlander.

If plans come to fruition, the turbo-charged Mitsubishi future should be complete by 2019.

As a whole, the Mitsubishi brand sells around 100,000 vehicles annually but that could change very soon. Mitsubishi is putting an emphasis on marketing and showed support for dealerships following suit.

With the combination of increased marketing and the return of turbocharged engines, Mitsubishi’s future is looking bright!

Here at Bell Mitsubishi, we can’t wait to see the latest turbocharged engines!

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage Details

The Mitsubishi Mirage didn’t receive any sort of update for the 2016 model year which means we’re in for a treat this time around. The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is one of the brand’s most successful vehicles, providing exactly what drivers need at a value price. Reminiscent of the efficient, budget-conscious cars of the past, the Mirage line is expanding.

The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a sedan version of the popular Mirage hatchback. The hatchback received plenty of updates for the 2017 model year, including compatibility software for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Mirage G4 made its official debut in Toronto but the United States got a first look at the 2016 New York Auto Show. The Mirage sedan received every update the hatchback model did.

The exterior features a front fascia specific to the sedan version. Inside, the Mirage G4 is very much the same as the hatchback. Both models received a new steering wheel and seats for the 2017 model year.

Like the hatchback, a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that pushes out 78 hp and 74 lb-ft of torque powers the sedan. The 2015 Mirage hatchback was the most efficient non-hybrid car in the United States with 40 mpg combined. The numbers aren’t in for the sedan just yet but expect something similar.

Here at Bell Mitsubishi, we’re pumped for the latest Mirage to arrive!

New Mazda CX-5 to Use Mitsubishi Bioplastic Materials

The new Mazda CX-5 will be making a huge step forward in terms of green technology and renewable resources. It might not actually feature an EV technology under the hood, but the CX-5 will be made out of green materials itself. These materials, called bioplastics, are not only more eco-friendly, but stronger as well, and they will be provided to Mazda by Mitsubishi.

Therefore, the new Mazda CX-5 will also provide a tighter driving experience, thanks to a new material that should prove both stronger and more durable than previous versions. It will use no petroleum, making it a friendly choice for new car buyers as well as the planet itself.

The new bioplastic material will also come in the new MX-5, but the CX-5 will be the focus of the new technology. As the provider of this material, Mitsubishi is proving its commitment to improve the economy and also make its vehicles better all across the board—or even other brand’s vehicles, if that helps the planet. Come see us at Bell Mitsubishi to learn more.
