Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has just unveiled the refreshed Mirage hatchback and Mirage G4 sedan (called Attrage in Thailand), now featuring a more aggressive look that brings the two cars much more in line with Mitsubishi’s current offerings design-wise.
Up front, the Mirage gets the Dynamic Shield front fascia present in all of Mitsubishi’s offerings. It is then flanked by Bi-LED headlights on higher variants, which gives the new Mirage not just a visual upgrade but also better visibility at night. The rear also gets redesigned, now featuring sportier bumpers and L-shaped LED taillights. Lastly, a set of new 15-inch alloy wheels give the Mirage a more modern look, in which the Mirage hatchback has a sporty two-tone finish while the Mirage G4 has a more elegant silver multi-spoke design.
The interior has also been upgraded though the changes are much less than the exterior. These changes include, but not limited to, new seat designs, interior trimmings finished with a carbon pattern and a new 7-inch touch screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity. Additionally, the Mirage and Mirage G4 feature different seat designs. Whereas the hatchback features a sporty cloth and synthetic leather combination, the Mirage G4 purely uses synthetic leather with white piping and stitching. Additionally, the Mirage G4 gets a rear center armrest.
Under the hood of the Mirage is the same 1.2-liter inline-3 petrol engine that produces 76 hp and 100 Nm of torque. Power is sent through the front wheels via a 5-speed manual or a CVT.
As for safety, the Mitsubishi Mirage is generously equipped in Thailand as it comes with advanced driver-assist features such as automatic emergency braking and pedal misapplication mitigation system. This comes on top of hill start assist, electronic stability control, three-point seatbelts for all five occupants, as well as ABS with EBD.
The new Mitsubishi Mirage line-up will make its public debut at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2019 which kicks off on November 28. A Philippine debut is likely to happen around Q1 2020.
