Mitsubishi Australia has released a limited-edition version of its Mirage light hatch, dubbed Black Edition, which is priced $16,090 plus on-road costs.
The Black Edition therefore commands a small $600 premium over the entry-level ES variant it is based upon. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is standard.
As its name suggests, the Black Edition features black exterior highlights, including on its 15-inch alloy wheels, side-mirror covers, window trim, roof and hatch spoiler, while red contrast stitching is found inside.
White, Titanium and Red are the only three paintwork options available, of which the latter two are metallic hues.
Standard equipment otherwise includes Bluetooth connectivity, manual air-conditioning, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, gear selector and handbrake lever; fabric upholstery and hill-start assist.
Just like the rest of the front-wheel-drive Mirage line-up, the Black Edition is motivated by a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 57kW of power at 6000rpm and 100Nm of torque at 4000rpm.
Fuel consumption is 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres on the combined-cycle test, while carbon dioxide emissions are 109 grams per kilometre.
