Your not Seeing things, That Mirage is a Sedan!

Mirage G4, 2017 Mirage

Mitsubishi scored a huge win with its latest generation of the Mirage.  With its smaller engine, spacious interior, and clean styling, the Mirage teaches you that being small can be a good thing. The Mirage is pound for pound a one of the best cars on the market.  It has a reputation for being a money saver with one of the best miles per gallon for a vehicle that is not a hybrid.  The Mitsubishi Mirage’s sales success led to the additional expansion of a sedan based model.  We here at Jim Shorkey are happy to announce we have the 2017 Mitsubishi G4 Sedan. The G4 Sedan is unique from the Hatchback model but keeps the traits that makes the Mirage loved.

The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a four-door sedan version of the pre-existing Mirage hatchback.  All 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage models will get a revamp no matter hatchback or sedan.  The sedan obviously gains a trunk, the G4 sports all of the upgrades made to the Mirage sedan for 2017, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.  Switching to a four-door sedan body changes the styling, and at the other end there’s a designed a sedan-specific front fascia.  The G4 sedan is already sold in a bunch of other markets as either the Mirage G4 or the Attrage, and Mitsubishi decided this was the year to bring the sedan to North America for some time.

The Mitsubishi G4 Mirage offers the same 1.2-liter, three-cylinder engine as the Mirage hatchback. While driving you should expect it to produce the same 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet torque, and for the same five-speed manual and CVT automatic transmission options to be on tap. What the Mirage lacks in power it makes up for in fuel economy: the last hatchback model to be EPA certified got 40 mpg combined, making it the most efficient non-hybrid car sold in the U.S. The Sedan will get 37 mpg

The interior should be pretty similar to the Mirage hatchback, which gets a new steering wheel and seat materials as part of its 2017 refresh. Like the hatchback, the Mirage G4 gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 300-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system from the five-door may be offered on the sedan as well.

Connecting bluetooth can be a trying experience if you are unfamiliar with a vehicle or a device.  Here at Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi, we have some helpful hints to connect your phone to your loved Mitsubishi.

Vehicle Setup

  1. Press the speech button on the steering wheel. It displays the image of a head with speech lines coming from the mouth.  Wait for the beep.

  3. Say “Pairing options.” Again, the vehicle will list options like list phones, select phone and pair a new phone. Wait for the beep.
  4. Say “Pair.” The Outlander will dictate instructions, and ask you for a four-digit PINcode.
  5. Say ANY four-digit pin code. You will use this PIN code on your phone right away to complete the pairing procedure.

  3. Start a search on your phone for new devices.
  4. Once detected, “Hands-Free System” or a similar name will display. Select it.
  5.  Enter the four-digit PIN number you selected previously. In some cases, the PIN number will display and you will only need to confirm that is it correct.

The New Mirage and Yes You Are Seeing Things

When the Mitsubishi Mirage was first released many had stereotypes that the Mirage was small and underwhelming.  Overtime customers changed that perception to now being one of the most loyal vehicles in the US.  The new Mitsubishi just hit the ground and they have done even more improvements for the consumer.  When driving the new Mirage and noticed things changed for the better.

Mitsubishi, Jim Shorkey Mirage, Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi,

The first thing that I noticed when I got into the Mirage was the new cloth that the Mirage gained.  It is much softer and less synthetic than the previous models.  The size of the cabin kept its amazing space that only Japanese manufactures have seem to conquer.  It’s so roomie.  The front dash has changed to a cleaner heating and cooling unit and gives you a feeling of sitting back more than previous models.  The suspension, tires and breaks are the same ,but the engine is the difference to the vehicle.  The newly redesigned engine gives you 4 more horse power.  It might not sound like much but with the new speed it improves acceleration.  Older models felt sluggish on acceleration when you pushed the gas pedal, with the engine improved the car is one of the most well balanced vehicles we have seen.  It keeps its impressive MPG with it averaging about 40 miles per gallon.  It inherits Mitsubishi’s industry’s best 100,000 mile warranty.  The 2017 is an upgrade that anyone would love.
