KBB.com Most Affordable Awards Go to Two Mitsubishi Vehicles

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander

Each year, Kelley Blue Book offers a series of awards, all of which are considered extremely prestigious in the auto industry. One of the award series the website offers is the KBB.com Most Affordable Cars in different categories. This year, Mitsubishi won several spots in the 10 Most Affordable New Cars category and the 10 Most Affordable 3-Row Vehicles.

The Mitsubishi Outlander didn’t just make the 10 Most Affordable 3-Row Vehicles list, it topped it, making it the most affordable three-row vehicle you can buy. Seven-passenger SUVs typically require a much higher cost than smaller cars, which can put a strain on families who need extra space—but the Outlander is priced around the same as full-size sedans and small SUVs, making it much more accessible for the average American family.

The Mitsubishi Mirage made the 10 Most Affordable New Cars list in 7th place, after being named the most affordable car to lease based on a study by Growella and winning multiple most affordable awards since it was first released in 2014 for the 2015 model year. The Mirage is one of the lowest-priced vehicles on the market and is the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid vehicle in America. It also offers lots of features and technologies, which make it an even better value.

Mitsubishi Unveils 2017 Mirage G4

The day has come: the new Mirage has finally been revealed. The 2017 Mirage G4 will serve as a sedan sibling to the popular Mirage hatchback.

This Mirage sedan will bring a fresh dose of style and environmental consciousness to the Mitsubishi lineup. The G4 will have the same powertrain of the 2017 hatchback, a revised 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine. It will be at the top of its class in combined fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions. The G4’s long wheelbase makes for a spacious interior cabin and trunk.

Tech elements make the new Mirage G4 a standout, too. It will be equipped with available smartphone integrations and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you’ll get features usually reserved for higher-priced vehicles in your affordable Mitsubishi.

With the new Mirage, you’ll get everything the hatchback offered with the benefits of a four-door sedan. “The Mirage hatchback and now the Mirage G4 sedan will form a formidable one-two punch in the subcompact segment,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president of MMNA.

Keep an eye out for the 2017 Mirage G4’s release to check it out for yourself.

IHS Automotive Recognizes Mirage for Highest Model Loyalty

The Mitsubishi Mirage has once again been recognized by IHS Automotive for having the highest model loyalty among Non-Luxury Traditional Sub-Compact vehicles.

The Mitsubishi Mirage continues to stand out as the vehicle to buy for non-luxury sub-compact vehicle customers.

The Mitsubishi Mirage has once again been recognized by IHS Automotive for having the highest model loyalty among Non-Luxury Traditional Sub-Compact vehicles. This is the second time in a row the Mirage has earned the award, proving that great things do come in small packages.

IHS Automotive measures model loyalty based on how many households who own a new vehicle return to the market to purchase or lease another new vehicle of the same make and/or model. The fact that people keep coming back to the Mirage is a testament to the vehicle’s quality and to its ability to live up to expectations.

“Mirage offers an unmatched package of segment-leading fuel economy, attractive pricing and an industry leading new

vehicle and powertrain warranty,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president at Mitsubishi North America. “Our faithful owners understand and appreciate the Mitsubishi Mirage.”

Later this year, the 2017 Mirage will arrive at Biggers Mitsubishi with a refreshed exterior design, better performance, and new technology. We don’t expect that IHS Automotive Model Loyalty award to go anywhere, that’s for sure!
