If Mitsubishi Made A Mirage Out Of A Micra

After joining the Renault-Nissan Alliance, Mitsubishi is looking to renew its lineup, and besides a new generation Outlander, they’re also interested in a more modern supermini.

Source claim that this job has fallen onto the Mirage, which will be replaced by an entirely new generation within the next couple of years.

It has been reported that it will share the same architecture as the next Renault Clio and Nissan Micra, sporting a range of three- and four-cylinder engines, some of which will be familiar, as they will be divided between the Dacia and Smart brands as well.

This should help Mitsubishi’s next supermini become a more viable challenger to the likes of the Peugeot 208, Opel/Vauxhall Corsa, and others.

And while we know what its foundation stone will be, not much has been reported about its design – yet. However, Photoshop artist Kleber Silva came up with a very cost- and time-effective idea, both for…himself and Mitsubishi: re-branding the current Nissan Micra into a Mirage with a face borrowed from the latest Outlander.

We’re hoping Mitsubishi will do more than that when time comes to present its Mirage replacement.

    Can I say that this somehow looks better than the current micra

  • MM

    Good render… looks better than the Nissan Micra IMO
    (I’d be surprised if Mitsubishi’s actual Mirage is at least as good…!)

  • c3vzn

    I’ll go against the grain and say it looks horrific. Mitsubishi’s weird design language doesn’t match with Nissan’s flowy body.

  • Autoexperte

    the Mitsubishi will certainly get door handles behind, otherwise he looks too much like a Micra

    Great idea, it could be new Colt. Make sure you give it a Rallyart version and enter it in any possible rally championship. That would be a nice move to bring back the Mitsubishi we all knew and loved.

      I hope so but I wouldn’t count on it.

  • Dennis Scipio

    It’s a nice shot, but it won’t look like this.

      this one makes much more sense to enter production

      Brilliant, buy im afraid if they bring back the name colt, they would bring it back as a baby SUV.!!

  • Kenny Heggem

    So we go from finally having an inexpensive simple 3 cylinder car, a modern safer and better quipped Geo Metro, with great efficiency, tough with awesome reliability… to get a sportier, less thrifty, higher cost, less reliable Renault Clone? No Thanks.
