Mitsubishi is working on to introduce a thorough facelift to the Mirage hatchback as images of a test mule has been spotted in Thailand. The Mirage is currently in its 6th generation that was unveiled at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show and received a facelift way back in 2015.
The latest iteration will adapt Mitsubishi’s new signature Dynamic Shield face which first appeared on the Xpander MPV and since then have successfully been incorporated with the Triton pickup as well as ASX crossover. In addition to the new fascia, dual tone alloys and rear spoiler are also evident in the picture.
To comply with Thailand’s Eco Car- Phase 2 regulations, the new Mirage will get 1.2 liter three-cylinder engine paired to either a 5-speed manual or CVT gearbox. Phase 2 regulations require C02 emissions to stay within 100 g/km and match fuel economy of at least 23.25 km per liter.
Mitsubishi will reportedly unveil the 2020 Mirage facelift along with its sister the Attrage sedan at the 2019 Thai Motor Expo which is scheduled to open its doors in November.
