Mitsubishi has launched the 2020 Mirage hatchback and the Attrage sedan in Thailand, priced at ฿474,000 and ฿494,000, respectively. Sales in other markets will follow at a later date. The hatchback is also called ‘Space Star’ in some European and Asian markets while the sedan is sold as ‘Mirage G4’ in some regions.
As for the design, both models adopt Mitsubishi’s signature Dynamic Shield design language for the front fascia. The new headlamp design makes the car look wider and more stable, and so is with the restyled rear-end. Both Mirage and Attrage are offered in a new White Diamond exterior color, while the Mirage palette has a new Sand Yellow color. Both models get new 15-inch alloy wheels, with two-tone diamond-cut styling on the Mirage.
Compared to the exteriors, there aren’t many changes on the inside. The instrument cluster and the power window switch panel use a carbon pattern. The front armrests use a new design, and the touch points are finished in a soft cloth.
The upper-trim levels are offered with a special seat design. For Mirage, these are upholstered in fabric/synthetic leather combination. For Attrage, they use a monotone design with synthetic leather. In addition, there’s piping and stitching on the seat sides for a touch of elegance.
Other features include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay compatibility. Safety technologies include Active Stability Control (ASC), Traction Control, Forward Collision Mitigation System, and RMS-Forward (Radar Sensing Misacceleration Mitigation System).
In Thailand, both Mirage and Attrage are powered by a 1.2-litre (1,193 cc) 3-cylinder petrol engine with an output of 57 kW (77 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 100 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT.
Mitsubishi said that the cumulative global sales of the Mirage and Attrage cars are around 650,000 and 280,000 units, respectively (as of the end of September 2019).
