The future-era Mitsubishi Mirage will share a system with the following Nissan Juke, which itself will share a system with many other motor vehicles in the Nissan, Renault and Mitsubishi universe.
The report comes from Japanese site Response, which also suggests Mitsubishi is targeting sportier hatches like the Suzuki Swift. The motor is expected to be either a .9-liter turbocharged inline-three, great for 94 horsepower, or a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel. An all-electrical version is rumored, but don’t forget, these powertrains are for non-US markets.
The auto will be built off of the Renault-Nissan CMF-B system, a modular platform analogous to the VW Group’s MQB platform. Currently, the Nissan Rogue, Rogue Sport, and the European-market place Pulsar, as nicely as Renault Megane, Kadjar, Talisman, and Espace V are some of the autos crafted on the CMF-C and D platforms.
By 2019, the Mirage, Juke, Renault Clio and Captur, as perfectly as the Dacian Sandero III and Logan III, will all share the CMF-B system.
The report says that styling will be extra intense than the latest Mirage, with cues taken from the Colt Ralliart scorching hatch and Lancer Evolution. The Mirage really should look in 2019 as a 2020 product.
