Mitsubishi's only hatchback on sale in the UK is getting a mid-life refresh
The reveal will take place in Thailand, near the Laem Chabang plant where the Mirage – and its Attrage badged saloon sibling – are both built.
A typical teaser image has been issued with the announcement, strongly suggesting that the Mirage will morph in line with the rest of the Mitsubishi range from a design perspective by utilising the brand’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ design language, as used on the L200 pick-up truck, and Outlander, ASX and Eclipse Cross SUVs. There’s a new, bolder top grille, while the headlights are joined by strong, C-shaped metal castings.
Nothing else has been said about the newcomer though, so it remains unknown if the facelift is mainly a design change or if Mitsubishi has altered the interior and engine line-up for its Ford Fiesta rival. However, advances in on-board technology and driver assistance features are anticipated.
The full facelift for the Mirage follows a minor update earlier in the year. Back in February, Mitsubishi rejigged the UK line-up, by dropping the asking price of the Mirage by £1,000 while tweaking the model’s 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine to meet the latest emissions and fuel economy regulations.
