The Mitsubishi Mirage Dingo is a mini MPV built by Mitsubishi Motors from 1998–2003, using a shortened version of the Mirage platform. The "Dingo" name is derived from Bingo and its connotations of good fortune, but with the B replaced by D to represent Mitsubishi's Diamond logo. In Japan, it was sold at a specific retail chain called Car Plaza.
As with most direct competitors in the market segment, accommodation is limited to two rows and five seats. The rear bench is split 50-50, with each section able to be slid forwards or backwards individually. Alternatively, folding or detaching the rear chairs provides a large and flat storage area. The rear seats can also be flipped downward to form a pair of beds. Because the gearshift is column-mounted there is no transmission tunnel, thus enabling oocupants to walk between front and rear seats.
Initially available with the 4G15 "Orion" 1.5 L GDI powerplant mated to an INVECS-II 4-speed auto, a smaller 1.3 L version (without GDI) and a larger 4G93 1.8 L version were introduced with a facelift in 2000, as well as Mitsubishi's INVECS-III continuously variable transmission.
In China, the Dingo is license-built and marketed as the Hafei Saima since April 2001.
