Mitsubishi Motor’s pint sized Mirage ES has out-muscled the competition to win the Best City Car category in Drive’s 2013 Car of the Year awards.
According to Drive, Mitsubishi’s Mirage ES was “unanimously found to tick all the boxes” and praised for its “ride comfort, its light, city-friendly steering and small turning circle, the fact it’s fitted with the full complement of safety equipment (six airbags, stability control), its Bluetooth-equipped stereo system, and the thrifty and perky three-cylinder engine”.
The Drive Best City Car award adds to the growing list of accolades Mirage has collected since its launch in January this year.
This includes recognition from respected automotive authorities like Wheels Magazine, which earlier named Mirage a Gold Star Car award winner in the Light Car Under $14k category. NRMA also identified Mirage as the cheapest new car to own and run in its annual study of vehicle operating costs.
The Mitsubishi Mirage benefits from a five year/130,000 km new vehicle warranty, five year Roadside Assist and Capped Price Servicing for the first four years or 60,000 km of ownership.*
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited’s (MMAL) CEO Mutsuhiro Oshikiri said the Mirage represents outstanding value in Australia’s competitive small car market, offering customers high levels of fuel efficiency, safety and equipment in a fun, roomy and stylish package.
“We’re very proud to see Mirage ES win Best City Car in Drive’s 2013 Car of the Year awards against very strong competition,” said Mr Oshikiri.
“Mirage’s low running costs, five star ANCAP safety rating, five year warranty and four year Roadside Assist make it compelling value for customers shopping for an affordable and smart city car.”
