Mirage

In a full model change and sporting a rounder body shape and new-taste styling, the fourth-generation Mirage was introduced in October 1991. Developed to a "Basic Car for the New Age" theme, the new Mirage came with its own all-new body, engine and chassis. The lineup initially comprised two variants each with its own distinctive styling: a "Chic urban sporty" 3-door and an "Elegant 6-light sedan" 4-door. Highly-density packaging saw a significant improvement in interior space. The extensive engine lineup included the world's smallest V6 engine, a 1.6L unit, as well as super-low consumption 1.5L Mitsubishi Vertical Vortex (MVV), 1.5L DOHC and 1.8L dieselturbo units. The range rode on a new multi-link design rear suspension. Active safety systems included traction control (TCL) that helps controlling traction in a corner when throttle input is mismatched to road surface conditions, while anti-lock braking (ABS) was available. The lineup was joined in May 1993 by the Mirage Asti 2-door coupe variant with a standard equipment specification that included climate control, power steering, power windows, central locking and keyless entry at an affordable price. It was powered by 1.3L and a 1.5L DOHC engines.
