Mitsubishi Mirage Sedan Rendering

Due to the company's small size and the fact that it only has a few models to work with, Mitsubishi Motors has struggled to make a keep its head above water since the recession hit, and we're genuinely concerned that the company that makes the Lancer Evolution will go out of business.

Because of its limited finances, Mitsubishi has at its disposal, it's had to put all of its eggs in two baskets: the Mirage subcompact and the new Outlander SUV. The former is a very small car that was designed to replace the Colt and also represent the company on the global market, including in the US, where it will go on sale this fall.

Last month, Mitsubishi revealed a concept called the G4 at the Bangkok International Motor Show. The design is said o preview a future sedan version of the Mirage, which would be a very welcomed model in the States. There's no question the Japanese automaker will put it into production in the coming years, but we don't have to wait that long to see what it looks like.

Automotive graphics manipulator Theopilus Chin has rendered the Mirage Sedan using elements from the hatch and a new upper grille that's much larger. It's a decent look, but the emphasis will almost certainly be placed on making it as cheap and as efficient as possible, so don't expect lots of chrome, expensive lighting technology or powerful engines.

Instead, a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine with start-stop and reduced friction internals will be offered with a manual or CVT gearbox.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
