Al Habtoor Motors shows off its latest additions to the Mitsubishi family at the 2012 Sharjah Auto Show

The Mitsubishi Mirage and the Mitsubishi Lancer Fortis were unveiled at the Sharjah International car show which ran from November 28 to December 1.

The 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Fortis, a compact sedan built in Taiwan, combines comfort with luxury. The Fortis, targeting families looking for spacious interiors and fleet customers, is powered by a 141 horse power 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine with a 5-speed CVT automatic gearbox - with sports mode.

“Lancer Fortis is here to make a mark in the market with its trendy style, good fuel economy and strong aerodynamics,” says Shibu Thomas, Fleet Sales Manager of Al Habtoor Motors.

The Lancer Fortis is available in the UAE effective immediately – with a price tag of between AED 59,000 - 61,000 ($16,062 - 16,606).

“It is the fantastic combination of luxury and value for money. With respect to price, we have positioned it very competitively so that it suits the pockets of people from all walks of life,” Thomas adds.

The 2013 Mitsubishi Mirage is an ideal city car targeting the youth of today and young families. The sub-compact hatchback, built in Thailand, has a 76 horse power 1.2-litre 4-cylinder engine, mated to either a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic.

Joe Rogan, the Sales Director of Al Habtoor Motors, says “Mirage is a totally new vehicle built from ground up and it combines a modern and fresh design with new technologies which will be sure to attract new and existing customers alike.”

Karl Hamer, the Managing Director of Al Habtoor Motors says, “This vehicle is one of the most environment friendly cars in the world, being one of the lightest in its class segment and most importantly it is extremely economical on the road.”

This spacious hatch is slated to hit Al Habtoor Motors showrooms by mid 2013.
