    Yea up north here in Canada their website is all 2018, and the mitsubishi dealership is like not much changed since 2009. I like the 2019 GT rims best, but I would go aftermarket on that sort of thing so my ES 2014 I own is good enough as it is...lighter than the new ones even with 5 more ponies and a new grill too.

The wiring is already there so why not offer it in all models? That may make the base model go up some, but they may also sell more of them. Compared to cars of the past, it's really well equipped for an economy car.

    Thus, I am not all that disappointed to hear few changes are being made. Given the trend of Ford dropping most of its car line up, and Chevy maybe phasing out some of its smaller entries, I don't think it unwise of the Mitsubishi to sit tight and see how that unfolds for a car like the Mirage.

    Even if a Mirage Crossover was in the works, it would be nice to see the Mirage remain. Someone offering an affordable, reliable, economical, entry level car should be praised. Sadly, the Mirage has faced some ridicule from professional auto snobs. Yet, others get its appeal! I've had mine for about 10 months now, & it has really grown on me.

    It would be nice if the Mirage would get some tweaks in the future, but I would be sad to see it lose its identity in the process. The Mirage doesn't have to be the right vehicle for everyone. Just like I've never felt the VW Beetle was ever the right car for me, it has been the right car for many others. The Mirage with its little 3 cylinder motor makes it a little unique, & I sort of like that!

    Being a world car is probably the best thing going for the Mirage. If changes were driven by the U.S. market, the Mirage would quickly lose some of its charm in my opinion.
    Is the cruise control wiring located in the 2014 DE base CVT model? Otherwise is a Rostra set up for me and its $560 with installation.

    I don't know much about the 2014-15 models. I haven't even been in one. Someone else like Daox could give you a better answer maybe?

    The dealer I purchased my 2017 Mirage ES from will installed an after market cruise for $600. I assume it's a Rostra set up, too. Thus, the price you quoted is similar to that. I've been living without cruise, but I miss it at times. I just did 4 hour drive back home from parents today. I like cruise because it keeps me from speeding. Thus, I do miss not having it at times. Otherwise, those 78 ponies (hp) just take off down the highway!!!

    Yep, it's there. You will probably need a new brake switch though. Check out my DIY write up for the procedure.
