Mitsubishi wants Canadian consumer input on its Mirage G4 sedan.
The four-door, three-cylinder sedan – which is built in Thailand – made its North American debut Thursday at the Montreal auto show and features Mitsubishi’s 1.2-litre, in-line DOHC 12-valve MIVEC three-cylinder engine with a continually variable transmission.
“Our plan is to showcase the Mirage G4 and gauge what Canadians think of it and what they expect from subcompact sedans in general,” Kenichiro “Kenny” Yamamoto, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada’s president and CEO, said in a press release. “A solid business case for Mirage was confirmed by the successful 2013 launch of the Mirage hatchback model; with G4, we’re indicating our intention to grow the Mirage line up in Canada.”
Visitors to the 2014 Salon International de l’auto de Montreal – and most other Canadian car shows this year – will be surveyed about the look, feel, cost and features of the new subcompact; the results will help to determine its future availability in Canada, said Yamamoto.
The Mirage G4 is sold in several Asian markets and is a sedan sibling of the Mirage hatchback (base price, $12,498) that made its North American debut at last year’s Montreal car show and is available for sale at Canadian dealerships.
