Mirage with a complicated history

The mirage having a range of cars is having a very complicated olden time with a diverse and complex naming principle that be diverge significantly depending on the car market. In Japan Mitsubishi utilized the name mirage for all the 5 generations, with all and the primary chain had huge success in the US. Though the other car markets often use the name Mitsubishi sedan and colt alternative of the mirage is extensively sold as the Lancer. This is the same name used in Japan where the 2 traded alongside one another. In Japan the Mitsubishi Mirage is sold as car plaza.

In the Canada and the United States, the first 4 generation were present in the market as an endeavor with Chrysler as the cut colt and the colt and Plymouth -badge champ. Later Summit branded models and eagle vista were sold alongside. Chrysler has also provided an unconnected Dodge lancer between 1950 and 1980s. When Daimler Chrysler controlled Mitsubishi briefly through Daimler Chryslker Mitsubishi grouping from 2000-2004. The permit to lancer was surrendered to Mitsubishi to use in the North America. Consequently after the final generation that is the fifth generation mirage, in North America the substitution model was sold by a new name.

Not very popular

With a new lancer generation starting in 2000 Mitsubishi launched replacements for the mirage fifth generation. Now moved up and larger having to the compacted section. Then in the year a new tailgate badged colt which was subcompact and had five doors was available globally.
