(proton saga convect to fiore)
the real fiore
In 1982, a new model was launched called the Lancer Fiore also known as the third version, based on the Mitsubishi Mirage. The Fiore was often sold as a Lancer in international markets, but the Mirage Sedan and the five-door Hatchback model remained in production for much of the 1980s. In Australia, which eventually sold as the Mitsubishi Colt Sedan although aesthetically different. Thus, Mitsubishi had two similarly sized models competing in the same market segment.
The following year, both Mirage and Lancer were renewed lines of the third generation. The Mirage four-door and Lancer sedan became the same car. Fuel injected and turbocharged models were an integral part of this range. A truck was added in 1985 and which resulted in a raised, four wheel drive version. Often, the Mirage (or Colt) would be the name used in the three-door Hatchback, Lancer and the name used in the rest.
This model formed the basis of the proton sedan, the Saga, Malaysia's first car, which was still in production until early 2008.
