2017 Mitsubishi Mirage Top Speed Is Pretty Insane!

By  | 

What defines a sleeper car? Is it the poor looks but insane performance? Or is it anything on an average looking car that can shock everyone? If it is the latter, then the latest Mitsubishi Mirage will fit the bill as a sleeper car.

The Mirage looks like an average econobox and the vehicle is tailored for the best fuel economy in city conditions. Mitsubishi built the Mirage with a 1.2L 3-cylinder engine that can return a whopping 37mpg city and 43mpg highway.

On the power figures, the Mirage looks pretty sad because it can generate up to 78hp and 74ft-lbs of torque only. The vehicle clocked about 15 seconds to sprint from 0-60mph and it also has a top speed of 165km/h (103mph).

Well, we have tested out the Mirage and on the highway when we slammed the accelerator; we achieved a top speed of 181km/h (111mph). For a small hatch, it was pretty scary and thrilling at the same time because everything was vibrating inside the cabin. Who knew that the Mirage can achieve 111mph?
