Mitsubishi Mirage: Australian future in doubt amid tougher safety rules


Mitsubishi’s sole remaining passenger car is poised to bow out this November, with costly upgrades uneconomical to meet new safety regulations.

Prices for the Model Year 2022 Mirage start from $17,490 drive-away (or $14,990 before on-road costs) for the entry-level ES manual – $500 less than the cheapest Kia Picanto and MG 3 variants, both priced from $17,990 drive-away (or $15,690 before on-road costs for the Kia), making the compact Mitsubishi the cheapest car on sale in Australia.
