Can consider 2012 Mitsubishi Mirage a K-Car?
2012 Mitsubishi Mirage is finally launched in Malaysia, at a glance, it may be seem like those Daihatsu K-Car looking, but actually it is define as B-segment five-seater hatchback, a B-segment category is putting it as same segment as the newly launched Nissan Almera as well but of course Almera is not in hatchback category.
With this new Mirage is more stress on environmental credentials, the 1.2-litre three-cylinder MIVEC engine, capable of generating 78 HP at 6000 rpm and 100 Nm at 4000 rpm, returns up to 21 km/litre in fuel economy, while emitting just 120 grams/km in carbon dioxide.
So with this clean drive come first concept, is this 3A92 engine suitable for a turbo bolt on modification? I believe there are K-Car fans may want to give it a try.
