2020 Mitsubishi Mirage and Attrage get a better face
With dwindling market share across the world, Mitsubishi motors are on a run to update their portfolio, albeit at their own pace. As a part of this, they’ve decided finally to give their economy offerings, the Mirage and Attrage, a good facelift. The previous models had received a lot of flak for being too mundane, even for their segment. Will the facelift help them gain a better footing?
The new Attrage and Mirage are better looking for sure, with Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield design language taking centre stage here. The X-shaped grill spices things upfront, along with the new projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights. The rear gets revised taillamps and bumper, giving the illusion of a wider body. The 15-inch dual-tone alloys have a good design as well. However, their frumpy profiles remain the same.
Inside, the little cars get more soft-touch materials, new seat design, and a front armrest. There is a new 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Not much has changed under the hood. The 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine produces 78 hp and 100 Nm of torque. This puny engine makes a lot of sense when you bring fuel economy figures into the light. On average, this engine sips just 6 litres of fuel per 100 km.
The 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage and Attrage come home with no groundbreaking improvements, but should continue to be popular with fleets. The cars will be shown off at the ongoing Thailand International Motor Expo. Sales in other markets will commence after the vehicle makes its debut in the Thai market.
