Mitsubishi has been selling cars in the United States since 1981, and it continues to make cars geared toward American drivers and their needs. Before you consider spending your hard-earned dollar on a car from an American brand (which may actually be built overseas), consider some of the reasons why Mitsubishi may be the superior choice for you.
Mitsubishi makes one of the most affordable cars in America: the Mitsubishi Mirage. Priced well below $15,000, the Mirage is a great choice for the budget-conscious driver, but it doesn’t skimp on style or amenities. Making it an even better value is its fuel economy: The Mirage returns an EPA-estimated 43 mpg on the highway, making it the most efficient non-hybrid car sold in the United States.* That’s a full 5 mpg better than the Chevrolet Spark. Ford doesn’t even have a comparable car anymore because it pulled out of the segment altogether.
A decade of confidence
Every new Mitsubishi car or crossover comes with a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. That’s a full five years and 40,000 miles more protection than you’ll get from the so-called Big Three. You get even more protection with a fully transferable 5-year/60,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty, a 7-year/100,000-mile Anti-Corrosion/Perforation Limited Warranty, and five years of unlimited-mile Roadside Assistance. Mitsubishi wants you to feel confident that your purchase is the best investment possible, and these warranties back it up.
Leading the pack
While Chevrolet and Ford are only just now entering the plug-in hybrid crossover market, Mitsubishi has had it on lockdown for some time. The new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is more than an incredibly efficient at 74 MPGe combined; it’s also plenty capable thanks to Super All-Wheel Control and up to 1,500 pounds of towing capability. When it comes to plug-in hybrid crossovers, American brands are merely playing catch up with Mitsubishi.
There are plenty more reasons why you should consider a new Mitsubishi, and we’d love to show you firsthand. Visit the Hampton Mitsubishi showroom and we’ll make it clear why driving a new Mitsubishi is a star-spangled banner idea.
