Following the crossover mania, the Japanese automaker is working on a sportier Mitsubishi Mirage to release in 2019.

Besides radical changes made to Eclipse coupe or break or innovative concept of Mitsubishi e-Evolution, this automaker is also aiming to turn the cutesy Mitsubishi Mirage into an even more compact but sportier hatchback, which will be directly placed in the same category as Suzuki Swift.

Though the design has yet been revealed, the latest car news confirms that this Mirage crossover will be built on the B version of Common Modular Family platform (CMF-B) developed by Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. This platform is also applied to Nissan March and the upcoming Juke SUV.

It is predicted that the new Mitsubishi Mirage crossover will bear a more aggressive look with so-called “Dynamic Shield” front design. The overfenders following style of Colt Ralliart and rear wing in Evo-esque goalpost pattern are two more projected features for this prototype.
