The Mirage is a hatchback in the class of the Hyundai i10 and Honda Brio. It measures 3.71 meters in length and weighs between 830-870 kg. Power comes from a 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine producing 78 PS at 6,000 rpm and 100 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a CVT automatic.

Think of the Mirage-Attrage combo as Mitsubishi’s way of competing with the Nissan Micra-Sunny. The Attrage is based on the Mirage’s platform and measures 4.245 meters in length. Like the Mirage, the Attrage is powered by a 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine producing the same power and torque outputs as the hatchback. Even the transmission options – 5-speed MT and CVT – are carried over from the Mirage.

The Attrage and Mirage are classified as Eco Cars in Thailand, as they achieve fuel efficiency greater than 20 km/l. Both cars are made at Mitsubishi’s Laem Chabang plant in the industrial estate in Chonburi province in Thailand.

    Both remind me too much of the Micra and Sunny.
    Hope Mitsubishi gives them an upmarket treatment before launching here.

    Though the looks are below average and clearly borrowed from some, should wait and see whether it would excite buyers looking at just economy. Love to see more Mitsubishi badges around !!

    Both cars look like cheap copies of the Nissan Micra and Sunny. Interiors are clearly ‘facelifted’ from old cars. Unfortunately Mistubhishi seems to have got it wrong once again.
