The Mirage ES will be launched from 12,990 AUD and it will undercut the Nissan Micra (13,490 AUD) but it will still be more expensive than the Chery J1 (10,990 AUD) or the Suzuki Alto (11,790 AUD). The mid-range Mitsubishi Mirage Sport will become available from 14,190 AUD, but get ready to pay 15,490 AUD if you’re into the top of the line, the LS.

The ES and the Sport are burning 4.6 liters of fuel with the five-speed manual or the CVT while the ES is burning 4.8L and 4.9L / 100km. The Mitsubishi Mirage is 3,710 mm long, 1,665 mm wide and 1,500 mm tall.
