Mitsubishi's Mirage G4 has been in the market for quite some time now. Slightly facelifted earlier this year, it got a new pair of tail lights, as well as a new rear bumper. Over in Thailand, the 2019 model gets a retouched front end too.
The facelifted Mirage G4 over in Thailand (dubbed the Attrage) gets a blacked-out treatment. No, it's not some special 'Black Edition' either. The model you'll see over there gets the gloss black details as standard. Also new is the grill and front intake, which now has a honeycomb pattern instead of the slatted piece. Capping it all off are a set of wheels finished in gloss black.
Changes on the inside are less noticeable. Over in Thailand, it gets synthetic leather seats, along with red contrast stitching for a more upmarket feel. It does get an upgraded infotainment system as it now packs Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also, the new steering wheel remote now includes a voice command function for the infotainment system. Top of the line models also get cruise control as standard.
On the safety front, it's the same as the pre-blacked-out model and has features from the Montero Sport. In the top-spec models, it has Forward Collision Mitigation System (also known as automatic emergency braking) and Radar Sensing Misacceleration Mitigation System which cuts power if the gas pedal is pressed in front of an obstacle.
Engine specs meanwhile are carried over from the current model. It's still the same 1.2-liter, three-cylinder mill with 78 PS and 100 Nm of torque. Also retained are the transmission choices which consists of a five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT).
For now, there is currently no word as to when the next-generation Mirage and Mirage G4 will come out just yet. It was previously reported that it will be around 2020 and could share the same platform with a new Nissan vehicle.
