Our Take on the Latest Model 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage

2000 Mitsubishi Mirage Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Mitsubishi subtracts from the options list and adds to the standard equipment column on its slow-selling Mirage, a front-drive subcompact. Several items previously optional are now standard on both the two-door coupe and four-door sedan. A redesigned Mirage is expected for the 2002 model year.

DE models gain several standard features: a tilt steering column, intermittent wipers, remote mirror controls, a driver's seat height adjuster, digital clock and a trunk lamp. LS models add power windows, mirrors and locks and cruise control. A 60/40 folding rear seatback is standard on the LS, optional on the DE.

The Mirage coupe and sedan share few body parts and have different dimensions. The coupe has a 95-inch wheelbase and 168-inch overall length, and the sedan has a 98.4-inch wheelbase and overall length of 173.6 inches. DE models move up from 13-inch tires to 14-inch this year, matching the diameter used on the LS models. LS models can be spiffed up with a new Sport Package that adds a rear spoiler, fog lamps, side sill moldings and alloy wheels.

Under the Hood
The DE coupe comes with a 92-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The DE sedan ditches the 1.5-liter and gets the 113-horsepower 1.8-liter also found in the LS coupe and sedan. Both engines come with a standard five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic.
