Miami Lakes Fuel Efficiency Myths

Mitsubishi Motors has placed their focus on crossovers for the time being, and aside from rumors that they may bring a truck back to the states, the lineup is down to three vehicles that aren’t a SUV or crossover. With the Lancer discontinued, the Mitsubishi Mirage and Mitsubishi Mirage G4 will be the only two sedans left in the Mitsubishi lineup after the 2017 model year. That being said, although the auto market is shifting towards crossovers, there’s still a good percentage of the demographic that prefers smaller cars with a low center of gravity and higher fuel efficiency. Of course, if in the market for a crossover, don’t let some of the rumors of fuel economy stop you – you may be surprised.

Over Time, a Vehicle Will Lose Its Fuel Efficiency

The Mitsubishi Mirage may be called the most fuel-efficient sedan on the market, with 37/43 mpg city/highway, and some may think “So what? In a couple years that number will drop anyway, so why not just get a crossover?” They would be wrong. According to the EPA, a vehicle’s fuel economy, even a vehicle that’s ten years old, doesn’t significantly decrease if the vehicle is properly maintained. So not only do Mitsubishi models maintain an excellent fuel economy over their lifetime, but because Mitsubishi also offers some of the best warranties in the industry, Mitsubishi vehicles are great for someone who wants to keep their vehicle for a long time.
