The Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car produced by Mitsubishi Motors from 1978 to 2002. It was also sold as the Mitsubishi Colt or Lancer Fiore.

Mitsubishi launched the Mirage as a three-door front wheel drive hatchback in 1978, as a response to the first fuel crisis some years before. It had a distinctive design with large windows and Mitsubishi’s ‘Supershift’ transmission (four speeds, but two modes). A five-door joined the range in 1979. This version of the Mirage was exported to the United States as the Dodge Colt and Plymouth Champ from 1979 and received the highest United States Environmental Protection Agency? fuel economy rating that year.

A 1600 cc engine joined the range in 1979.

In 1981, the Lancer Fiore, not to be confused with the regular Mitsubishi Lancer, was launched. The Fiore was a four-door version of the Mirage. At the same time, the range was facelifted.

In 1982, a turbocharged, 105 PS (77 kW) version of the 1400 cc engine was made available.

In many countries, this car was known as the Mitsubishi Colt. In the United Kingdom, where Colt was the marque, it was called the Colt 1200 and Colt 1400, after the size of the engines, which it shared with the larger Lancer.
