    Malaysia: The new Mirage goes on a new direction (car-

    The new Mirage goes on a new direction; far from the performance orientated path it took before. We take it for a spin and see if thereís still some fun leftÖ
    This is an interesting review. It's quite "extreme" in the sense that it goes from talking quite a lot about the lengths drivers went to achieve excellent fuel consumption in the economy run (I posted a thread & video about that competition, here) to a discussion of what techniques wring the best performance out of the car on a race track!

    There seems to be little here for the typical driver.


    - fuel economy, even though this driver intentionally went much faster than the rest of the group
    - surprisingly: he really liked the car's handling at the limits, once he realized how well its light weight made it more responsive to corrections
    - brake fade (on the race track)


    - "the plastics feel cheap but thatís the price you (donít) pay"
    - steering too light


    In short, the Mitsubishi Mirage is strikingly impressive. As a product that promises an economical drive I think it does the job [...] So back to the question, economy or attitude? Surprisingly, a lot of both.
