mother and daughter go for matching mitsubishi mirages

IT’S not a mirage – a mother and daughter from Barnstaple really have picked up identical new cars.

Deanna Gray and Karen Ward have each just collected their brand-new Mitsubishi Mirages, in grey, from Devonshire Motors in Braunton Road, Barnstaple.

Both vehicles are Mirage 3s with matching interiors and trim and both have a manual gearbox. In fact, the only difference you can see is just one letter in the number plates.

A delighted Karen, 50, who works as an Administration Assistant, said: “I think they’re great, they look like twins. They’ll be parked together whenever I go to see my mum and it’ll be hard to tell the difference.”

Her mother, Deanna, 71, now retired, added: “We were looking at buying a car for Karen and when I saw the Mirage it was such a good deal that I thought I’d have one for myself too. We both liked the grey colour and I think they look really good together. We’re really pleased with them.”

The Mitsubishi Mirage has been designed to be lighter, more efficient and more nimble than the typical small car, and the 3 model boasts a range of fabulous features, including keyless entry, front fog lamps, and front and rear parking sensors.

It offers exceptional fuel economy across the range of between 65.7 and 68.9mpg (combined), and with CO2 emission levels across the whole line-up lower than 100g/km there’s no road tax to pay.

Chris Chapple, Sales Executive at Devonshire Motors, where they have sold 15 Mirages this month, said: “We quite often get families who have more than one Mitsubishi but I can’t remember ever selling two cars that were exactly the same to a family before. I’m sure Karen and Deanna will enjoy driving them and we’ve already joked with them about getting different-coloured fluffy dice so they can spot the difference.”

To test-drive a Mitsubishi call Devonshire Motors on 01271 342600, go to or visit the dealership in Braunton Road, Barnstaple, EX31 1LQ.
