Mitsubishi designs cars based on its corporate mission to deliver, “the utmost driving pleasure and safety.” Mission accomplished, Mitsubishi. Well done.
The team at Mitsubishi Miami dealer, Miami Lakes Automall, can attest to this, especially since their large inventory features outstanding vehicles from this strategically-limited line.
Keeping its line small allows Mitsubishi to intently focus on each model and refine with razor-sharp precision every specification to “driving pleasure and safety” perfection.
Ask any of the experts at our Mitsubishi Miami dealer and they’ll show you why your next purchase or lease should come from the Mitsubishi lineup.
Let’s take a closer look at that lineup and see what Mitsubishi delivered to the automotive industry in 2015.
Small, Yet Perfect Lineup of Budget-Friendly Vehicles
Arguably, the best thing about Mitsubishi is the affordability of these fun and stylish cars.
If you’re on a budget, you would be wise to consider any of these 2015 Mitsubishi models, all of which are waiting for you at your Mitsubishi dealer in Miami.
2015 Mitsubishi Mirage
Can’t believe your eyes? Neither could we. Priced between $12,995-15,395, the Mirage, a subcompact economy car, boasts an impressive and very real fuel economy of 34/42 mpg.
No, you’re not seeing things. It really is that fuel efficient. This four-door, front-wheel drive hatchback seats five passengers comfortably.
Small, but safe, this car is equipped with four-wheel antilock brakes, front-side and side-curtain airbags, as well as driver knee airbags, increased stability and traction controls, all of which earned the Mitsubishi Mirage high safety ratings from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.
In safety tests, the Mirage stopped from 60 mph in 121 feet, meeting the expectation for a car of this size without any trouble at all.
Powered by a 1.2-L three-cylinder engine with 74 horsepower and 74 lb.-ft. of torque, the transmission comes in either a five-speed manual or CVT (continuously variable transmission).
With these specs and four trim options, it’s hard to believe this is all a Mirage.
2015 Mitsubishi Lancer
A sportier sedan than those in its class, the Mitsubishi Lancer costs between $17,395-29,495, with a maximum fuel efficiency of 26 miles in the city and 34 on the highway.
Equipped with a 2.0-L four-cylinder engine, capable of 148 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque, the Lancer comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission and optional CVT.
Another four-door, five-seater, the Lancer has 16-inch wheels and is available in four trim options: ES, SE, GT, and Ralliart.
Much like the Mirage, the Lancer received high safety ratings, earning four out of five stars for crashworthiness. If you like the Mirage, but are looking for a roomier ride, the Lancer is exactly what you need.
2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
Moving up in size, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a sporty compact crossover SUV, with great fuel economy at 23/26 mpg.
A quiet and comfortable ride, the Outlander Sport is priced between $19,565-24,995.
Available in four trim levels, the Outlander Sport features a standard 2.0-L inline four-cylinder engine, capable of 148 horsepower and 145 lb.-ft. of torque.
On certain trim levels, an optional 2.4-L four-cylinder engine is available, producing 168 horsepower and 167 lb-ft. of torque.
Either options come with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The five-speed manual transmission comes standard, but the CVT is another trim level option.
This is an ideal road trip car. What better point of departure than Mitsubishi in Miami?
2015 Mitsubishi Outlander
Slightly larger than the Outlander Sport, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is a mid-size SUV with a towing capacity range of 1,500-3,500 pounds.
Even with more muscle, the Outlander remains affordable, between $23,195-28,195, and still maintains good fuel economy, offering 25 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
Depending on which of the three trims you prefer, (ES, SE, GT), the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a choice of two powertrains. The base ES and midrange SE are equipped with 2.4-L, four-cylinder engines, able to produce 166 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque, in standard CVT transmission.
Taking it up a notch, the midrange GT features a 3.0-L V6 engine with 224 horsepower and 215 lb.-ft. of torque. Six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive come standard.
Oh, and this slightly beefed up version of the Outlander Sport also has increased cargo room and three rows of seats, able to accommodate seven passengers.
This really is the ultimate carpool machine, with a five-star federal safety rating and additional top safety ratings by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which awarded the Outlander its Top Safety Pick + status.
All of these Mitsubishi vehicles embody a pleasurable and safe driving experience, just as Mitsubishi intended.
End of an Era: The Last Lancer Evolution
That’s right. It’s curtains for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
Based on the sporty-inspired Lancer sedan, the Lancer Evolution is Mitsubishi’s high-performance sports car.
Already discontinued in other markets, the 2015 model year is officially the last year of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in the United States.
This, the tenth generation of Lancer Evolutions, represented by Roman numerals, is complete with traditional, tried-and-true Lancer equipment, but enhanced, turbocharged, and intercooled with DOHC 16-valve, four-cylinder 2.0-L engine, able to produce 291 horsepower at 6,500 rpm, with 300 lb.-ft. of torque from 4,000 rpm.
The five-speed manual comes standard on the GSR trim level, but the premium MR model is upgraded to the six-speed Twin-Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST).
Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system comes standard on all tenth-generation Lancer models. With the MSRP between $34,495-38,995, the Evo offers fuel economy of 17/22 mpg.
If you want to be a part of an iconic legacy, hurry to the Mitsubishi Miami showroom before the chance to own a part of automotive history zips by you.
