9 Bang For The Buck Performance

Under the hood, the 2024 Mitsubishi Mirage comes with a naturally aspirated 1.2-liter inline-triple engine, putting out 76 Horsepower at 6000 RPM and 74 pound-feet of torque at 4000 RPM which is to say that the new Mirage’s specs haven’t particularly improved from its 2023 predecessor, since the engine still often struggles with the 2,100-pound car. The standard CVT (continuously variable transmission) keeps the RPM rather high to make the engine feel powerful but instead makes the engine noisier than you’d want.
