The updated Mitsubishi Mirage takes on the latest brand look, gets new materials inside and comes with updated infotainment

The Mitsubishi Mirage supermini has been given a nip and tuck, with a revised version of its Ford Fiesta rival due to hit UK showrooms early next year.

Quite obviously, the exterior design changes substantially up front, with a totally new front end designed around Mitsubishi’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ face with C-shaped metal strakes and a new grille, appearing alongside newly minted headlights with LED multi-bulb lamps.

Around the back, the bumpers have been swapped out for chunkier items, intended to give the Mirage a tougher look. There are new L-shaped LED combination lamps too, while a new set of 15-inch wheels and two new paint colours have been added to the Mirage’s palette: White Diamond and Sand Yellow.

Inside changes aren’t too far reaching. Mitsubishi has played with the materials, introducing soft touch cloth finishes on touchpoints, adding faux carbon fibre to the instrument panel and introducing a new fabric/synthetic leather upholstery on high-spec versions of the Mirage.

Mitsubishi has updated the infotainment too, to a seven-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The engine remains a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol with 79bhp and 107Nm torque. Earlier in 2019, Mirage was updated to meet real-world driving emissions regulations, rejigged to return CO2 of 107g/km and fuel economy of 60.1mpg.

Final UK specifications have not been outlined by Mitsubishi’s UK arm, but when the updated Mirage goes on sale early in 2020, a slight rise on the £11,295 price tag of the current model should be a given.

The fuss around family cars may have centred firmly on the all-new Volkswagen Golf of late, but that’s not say other manufacturers are resting on their laurels. Conscious of quite how capable Wolfsburg’s hottest hatchback may be, makers are rushing to make improvements to their fast-selling favourites.
