The 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 will be arriving in the Philippines soon, and this has been confirmed through a teaser that the Japanese automaker has sent to us. Specifically, the Mirage G4 is destined to arrive on August 28, 2021, right after the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila.
So far, the details that we know about Mitsubishi’s latest subcompact sedan are scarce and based on the G4 moniker, it seems we’ll be getting the sedan first before the hatchback. Nevertheless, this will be the second facelift that the Mirage lineup has received throughout its life cycle and the first for the G4 sedan.
First making its debut in Thailand in late 2019, the facelifted 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 now flaunts the company’s Dynamic Shield grille. At this point, however, we are not aware of the local model’s specifications, but the global models get full LED headlights on higher variants. The rear also gets redesigned, now featuring sportier bumpers and L-shaped taillights. Lastly, a set of new 15-inch alloy wheels should also come as standard on higher variants, as shown in the teaser.
The interior of the 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 should remain largely unchanged for the 2022 model year, which means it should still be equipped with features like a touch screen infotainment system, smart entry with push button start, at least on the higher variants. Mitsubishi did give it a new upholstery design to liven up the cabin even more.
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, depending on the variant.
We are also not aware of any safety features that the new Mitsubishi Mirage G4 will come with, though in Thailand, the Mirage G4 comes with a number of advanced safety features such as automatic emergency braking and pedal misapplication mitigation system.
It seems we do not have to wait any longer for us to finally see the newly-refreshed 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 on our local shores. With the current Mirage G4 being locally assembled, it’s safe to say that this will still be the case for this new model.
