Klarius Products has added seven new components to its market-leading range of aftermarket exhausts, including replacement systems for the Mitsubishi Mirage 1.0 and 1.2 hatchback.
Landing on our shores branded as ‘Colt’ in 1974, Mitsubishi brought its time in the UK to a close in 2020 as it left the domestic market entirely. From reliable economy boxes like the Colt, to the iconic Shogun and Pajero SUVs, to futuristic technological powerhouses such as the 3000GT – despite its absence, Mitsubishi has left an indelible mark on British motorists.
Arguably, no vehicle built the brand’s reputation more than the Lancer Evolution, a car that was initially only available in the UK via grey import. Four consecutive World Rally Championship (WRC) drivers’ titles for Tommi Mäkinen between 1996 to 1999 cemented legendary status, while its hyperactive, otherworldly performance made it a firm British B-road favourite.
The 2010s saw Mitsubishi pivot towards superminis, SUVs and crossovers – a change in strategy that saw the introduction of the sixth generation Mirage. Economical and relatively cheap, the Mirage received a mixed reception, but has proved popular enough with motorists to receive aftermarket support from Klarius.
Doug Bentley, Head of Research and Development at Klarius, adds: “With Mitsubishi withdrawing from the UK market, it can be challenging to source replacement parts that correspond to OEM specifications. At Klarius, we specifically develop aftermarket exhausts with Mitsubishi vehicles to ensure owners of the L200, Shogun, Outlander, Mirage and more can get quality components. If you’re looking to find a replacement exhaust for a vehicle without manufacturer support in the UK, we’re a good place to start.”
However, all might not be lost for British fans of the brand. Mitsubishi has reversed its decision to leave the European market entirely, raising the possibility of a return to the UK in future. Regardless of what happens, owners can rely on Klarius should they need a quality exhaust replacement.
All Klarius exhausts are available with next day delivery for orders placed before 5:30 pm, with popular products held at local motor factors nationwide for rapid dispatch. Every applicable part is type-approved. A Fit First Time guarantee and a 2-year warranty is standard across the entire range of over 11,000 references.
