Dynamic duo: The two variants of the Mitsubishi Mirage

Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback

The subcompact sedan segment is one of the most competitive categories in the local automotive landscape. That said, Mitsubishi opted to throw in one of its longest-running nameplates to compete in a cut-throat segment.

The Mitsubishi Mirage has been in production since 1978 and is now one of the Japanese carmaker’s best-selling subcompact vehicles in the country.


Mitsubishi Philippines is currently offering the Mirage in two variants. And although they’re not as iconic as Batman and Robin, these cars are definitely as unique and as dynamic.
