Mitsubishi Mirage, Lancer: Company accepts need for passenger cars

Mitsubishi’s budget Mirage light hatch is almost certain to move upmarket in its next generation, onto an alliance platform shared with the Renault Clio and European Nissan Micra. Additionally, the company hasn't ruled out re-introducing the Lancer, which ceased production for western markets at the end of last year. This business case seems less assured than the Mirage, however.

National Road Safety Strategy isn't working - study

No state or territory is on track to meet its road-toll reduction target under the National Road Safety Strategy (NRSS), according to new road trauma benchmarking from the Australian Automobile Association (AAA). Developed in 2010, the NRSS is aiming for a 30 per cent reduction in road fatalities by 2020. We've seen a 10.3 per cent reduction in the annual national road toll since the program started, well behind what's required if that target is to be met.

This first official image was posted overnight on the company's Korean website, and shows off the car's larger, and seemingly squarer, headlight units. Featuring an all-LED design, the revised G90 has a more modern lighting signature. The upstart luxury marque says the G90's tail-lights will gain similar "G-Matrix" graphics "inspired by the beautiful diffuse reflection of diamonds in light".
