Mitsubishi has introduced a new subcompact model called the Mirage to help resuscitate sales in the U.S today at the New York Auto Show.

The new Mirage is powered by a 1.2L three-cylinder engine with Mitsubishi's MIVEC variable valve-timing system, producing 74 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque. This is mated to a five-speed manual or a continuously-variable transmission.

Mitsubishi says the Mirage can get 37 City/44 Highway/40 Combined when equipped with the CVT.

Standard equipment on the Mirage includes seven air-bags, Stability Control, automatic climate control, and a four speaker 140-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with USB/iPod input.

Mitsubishi says the new Mirage arrives at dealers this fall.

      There are a small group of people who want Mitsubishi to do a follow-up to the Lancer Evolution. The good news is that Mitsubishi is considering it. The bad news is that it will be awhile as the company has some other issues it needs to work out.
      According to Motoring, Mitsubishi global boss Trevor Mann said a performance model was on the table for future products.
      “In terms of the brand, I think it would be interesting to bring something back that’s a bit more sporty in the future. You’ll have to wait and see what that is.”
      Those who are hoping for another performance sedan will be disappointed as Mann said it would likely come in the form of an SUV, something Mitsubishi has said before. Also, it will be awhile before this product could show up.
      “I would say [a new performance model] it is long-term rather than mid-term,” Mann said.
      “It will be between three years and six years.”
      Mann also hinted that Mitsubishi was considering a return to motorsports. The company has a long and storied history with various models competing in the World Rally Championship and Dakar Rally.
      “Motorsport is something that we’ve talked about a lot recently, and because of our heritage it’s something that we’ve got to consider,” said Mann.
      “It goes with the brand and it’s something that we’ve got the technology in and our engineers know what to do. It’s something we need to consider again.”
