Mitsubishi Motors North America has unveiled the efficiency figure for its gasoline-powered Mirage hatchback. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has rated the mirage at 36mpg for city driving and 43mpg on the highway.

According to the EPA report, the three-cylinder Mitsubishi engine will cost an owner US$900 annually to run (based on 45% highway, 55% city driving, 15,000 annual miles and current fuel prices).

The Mirage G4 sedan is similarly efficient, with a highway fuel economy of 41mpg. The sedan is equipped with the same powertrain as the hatchback version – a 1.2-liter three-cylinder.

“Mitsubishi proves efficiency comes in all shapes and sizes, from the Mirage up to the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV,” said Mark Chaffin, chief operating officer, MMNA. “Efficiency is at the heart of our engineering philosophy. We make affordable vehicles available for all consumers looking to reduce their annual transportation costs, while at the same time reducing their carbon footprint. Everything we engineer, build and sell is a testament to that effort.”
