    Possible very bad news regarding 2020 5 dr.

    I had a call from Bank Street Mitsubishi in Ottawa today.

    The sales dude wanted to know if I was in the market to move to a newer car. I told them back in 2016 when I bought my first Mirage to call me in the fall if there were any spectacular deals. Anyhow, I'm digressing.

    They have a single 5dr available, 2019 at a so-so price. They have an abundance of G4s.

    Here's the rub. Mitsubishi has not provided Bank Street with any information on the 2020 hatchback. There is no firm date for them to get cars, there is no literature, and the sales guy is reasonably sure Canada won't be getting 2020 hatchbacks.

    Take this with a grain of salt at this time, but if there's any truth to this, Mits has just shot themselves in both feet, and in the head for good measure.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way

    Mitsubishi has already announced the small changes for the 2020 Mirages. Unless its just Canada your worried about not getting the 2020s? Maybe because yall have the Nissan Micras already?

    That's what I was thinking. Nissan might want to push the Micra hard here. The G4 must be higher margin car for Mits so taking away the hatchback choice will make them more money?

    Sounds like a lot of speculation to me. In the States, I've noticed the new model Mirages seem to arrive a little later each year. I test drove 2018 Mirage in October of 2017. My new 2017 Mirage was delivered to my home on October 20, 2017, but the 2018 models were around for a bit already. Last year the 2019 models came much later, and this year the 2020 don't seem to be on the horizon yet.

    Personally, I think your salesman is just feeding you a line to help a possible sale happen. As far as literature goes, the Mirages haven't really changed other than giving the base model more standard features, & creating more trim levels (ES, RF, LE, SE, GT).

    Apparently, a base level G4 isn't offered in Canada. The Mirage starts @ $10,998 there verses the G4 starting @ $15,498. That's quite a difference!

    For some reason, the Mirage hatch ALWAYS seems to be the last model to hit the lots for the new model year.

    Yup, they even forgot to put out a 2016. Maybe they'll just keep selling the 19's next year in Canada and skip the 2020 model year. Or maybe the dealer was just full of shart and just want's you to buy their old 19's.

    They didn't "forget" to sell the '16s. LOL

    FWIW, Mitsubishi Canada's media page only lists the RVR and Eclipse Cross for 2020 thus far. I see the Mitsubishi Canada's site lists the 2020 Eclipse Cross, Outlander, and RVR only.

    I wonder if the dealership person mixed up the news that the G4 is being canned, but the hatch will continue for 2020. Spotted a report to that effect yesterday:

    Thread: Report: G4 discontinued in Canada - hatchback to continue
