The strengthened RISE body structure keeps all the car’s occupants safe, by effectively absorbing and dispersing crash energy from all directions.
Electronic Power Steering gives Mirage a petite turning circle of just 9.2m. This means you’ll find it pleasantly easy to maneuver in car parks and on narrow city streets.
Operating in tandem with airbags, seatbelts in the front will instantly contract when they receive an inflation signal, cleverly minimizing impact in frontal collisions.
ASC maintains stability and control when cornering, by recognizing under-steer and over-steer. It then applies brake force to the appropriate wheels to keep you in control.
Hill Start Assist
The days of learning to do hill starts in your first Mirage are history with the introduction of Hill Start Assist. This clever function makes it easier to start off on a steep slope by maintaining the brake force, while you move your foot to the accelerator.
EBD reduces stopping distances by detecting passengers or heavier loads and automatically increasing rear brake force accordingly.
- A) Driver only with EBD
- B) With passengers and cargo with EBD
- C) With passengers and cargo without EBD
This system allows you to maneuver around objects under heavy braking conditions. It also prevents your wheels locking up, stopping you from slipping if you need to brake suddenly.
Every Mirage is fitted with driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags as standard. This protection lowers collision impact from all directions, greatly reducing injury.
Most cars would end there, but Mirage has one more trick up its sleeve to keep you safe. If you unintentionally hit your accelerator pedal as well as your brake in an emergency situation, the new SmartBrake system spots the error, cancels out the message from the gas pedal, and puts full concentration on your braking.
