2017 Mitsubishi New Model Highlights
With 2017 coming in fast, auto brands have begun the 2017 arms race and released their new models to the streets. Mitsubishi is among them with four* new models. Here’s a quick look at the 2017 Mitsubishi i-Miev, 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4, 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer, and 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4
Both, the Mirage and Mirage G4 are two subcompact cars offering fuel efficiency and tech. The 2017 Mirage G4 is actually a first-year offspring of the Mirage lineup. The all-new Mirage G4 is a four-door subcompact sedan whereas the Mirage is a subcompact hatchback. Not only are both models at the top of its class in fuel efficiency and C02 emissions, but both 2017 models have up-to-date modern tech, including smartphone integrations such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 are both powered by a 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine. This provides a fuel economy of 37/43 MPG city/highway for the Mirage and 35 MPG in the city and 42 MPG on the highway for the Mirage G4.
2017 Mitsubishi i-Miev
Time for a little shock – the i-Miev is an all electric vehicle (EV), also known as the “Mitsubishi Innovative Electric Vehicle”. It’s a five-door hatchback that was the first highway-capable electric car to hit the States, and its currently the most affordable EV. The i-Miev gets an average of 121 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) when driving in the city. For battery charging options, drivers can stop by a public quick-charger port for 30 minutes to charge the battery up to 80%; some owners may choose to install a 240V charging unit (purchased from AeroVironment and Eaton), into their home garage for faster charging, but the standard 120V outlet can charge the car, too.
2017 Mitsubishi Lancer
Most recently, the Mitsubishi Lancer entered the stage with a couple upgrades for the 2017 model. It may look the same at first glance, due to minor exterior changes, but the big change is on the inside. All trims will come standard with an improved 6.1-inch digital display and a rearview backup camera. The wheels have upgraded to 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels (standard for the base trim, Lancer ES, and ES 2.4), and 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels are installed on the Lancer SE and SEL.
2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
Yes, the long-awaited PHEV is finally coming from overseas to the U.S.A. If you haven’t heard, the Outlander PHEV is a hybrid four-wheel drive vehicle that can travel over 500 miles on a full tank of gas and a fully charged battery. The Outlander PHEV is powered by a 12-kWh battery that, like the i-Miev, can also charge up to 80% charge in 30 minutes. On battery alone, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV can travel 32 miles with minimal emissions. If you want to rev things up a bit, the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gas engine can help pick up the pace.
