Ralliart works its magic for the Mitsubishi Mirage in Thailand
Mitsubishi just can't seem to get enough of making more Ralliart models. Apart from dressing up the ASX, Delica, Outlander, and the Eclipse Cross, the automaker has also released the Mirage Ralliart. The five-door now joins the likes of the Triton (aka Strada) and Montero Sport that's now available with the Ralliart look over in Thailand.
Unlike the regular hatchback, the modified Mirage comes with plenty of exterior upgrades. Starting with the most obvious, it gets rally-inspired mudflaps, a red-colored grille garnish, and faux carbon fiber wheel arch panels. For extra flair, it also has a Ralliart side sticker that's finished in the brand's signature colors, and gloss black alloy wheels.
Not forgetting about the interior, Mitsubishi put Ralliart-branded floor mats as an added touch. Like the standard Mirage, the dressed-up hatchback gets gloss black trim pieces, faux metal finishes, imitation carbon fiber accents, and unique fabric seats.
Don't expect to find any changes under the hood. As before, it continues to come with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder MIVEC engine. It puts out a humble 78 PS with 100 Nm of torque and is connected to a CVT.
In Thailand, the hatchback is available in two special exterior finishes paired with a black roof; White Diamond and Red Metallic.
There's no word yet if the Ralliart Mirage will be offered outside The Land of Smiles. Hopefully, Mitsubishi Philippines will start to offer Ralliart models in the not-so-distant future like what Thailand is currently doing. It would make for a great competitor against Toyota's GR Sport offerings.
