Mitsu unveiled a "concept" subcompact sedan this week at the Bangkok motor show. It's a Mirage. But they haven't announced any production news.

some "high speed" real world fuel economy results posted

Some French journalists just posted a video of a fuel economy test of the 1.2L, 5-speed car (Mirage is called "Space Star" in France and other Euro countries).

Notable: they stuck to posted speed limits, and 45% of the round trip was on freeways at 81 mph / 130 km/h. Total trip length was 249 miles (400 km).

Another 45% was secondary roads, and 10% was urban driving.

They filled to the brim at the same station before & after, using the same pump, same fuel (E10), and still managed 44.6 mpg (US) / 5.28 L/100 km.

Video of the adventure below. I've posted English translation of the subtitled info here: Economy run in south of France, 1.2 5MT: 5.3 LKH (44.6 mpg US) up to 130 kph (81 mph)

The sedan looks really nice, why don't they apply a similar front-end-treatment to the hatch?

I know a lot of people hate my car (Yaris sedan), but I greatly prefer its look to the hatch.

They very well may do that. The look has been a fairly major complaint by a lot of reviewers. Depends on how sales go and customer feedback I'm sure.

If I had to guess, the tires on the car in the video are narrower, and maybe that is the 0.01 difference in the Cd?

Too bad we can't convince Mitsu to have their new offering come stock with RE92's just like the original insight (having a bigger base of 165/65r14 cars would help everyone)

We know the tires on the Mitsu are described as LRR. Bridgestone Ecopias are fitted in multiple countries on the car's 14 inch rim. How they compare to RE92's, we don't know. Won't know until we get to try 'em!

Your guess is as good as anyone's. Mitsu isn't offering specifics.

I just looked online to try to find some tires for it to see what they cost. It doesn't look like anyone makes snow tires that would work on the car. Hmm.
