Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited has just pushed the 2020 Mirage out onto the sales floor, armed with a refreshed look, new metallic colours and additional safety technology.
“Customers looking for style and reliability will love the new 2020 Mirage. We have made some significant and thoughtful changes to improve the ownership experience. I believe we have addressed all the key areas which we know our customers value in this segment,” said Owen Thomson, Senior Manager for Product Strategy.
The front end of the Mirage sports the marque’s Dynamic Shield front fascia along with new chunky bumpers with angular recesses on each corner, which gives the hatchback a broader, more aggressive stance.
The rear-end also has a wider look thanks to the squared-off treatment given to the bumper corners. Around the side, the range-topping LS variants receives 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. Further, the LS also receives LED headlights, automatic high beams, LED daytime running lights and LED rear combination lamps.
On the inside, the five-seater hatchback has 235 litres of cargo storage in normal configuration while folding the rear seats flat yields 599 litres. The Mirage also gets a 12V accessory socket in the rear along with a cargo cover.
Elsewhere there’s a 7-inch touchscreen head unit which dishes out infotainment and comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility along with Bluetooth, USB and DAB digital radio. The Mirage also receives a rear-view camera system fitted as standard.
The Mirage’s powertrain remains unchanged over the outgoing model. The 1.2-litre petrol-fed MPI MiVEC engine still outputs 57kW of power at 6,000 rpm with a maximum torque figure of 100Nm at 4,000 rpm.
As before, two transmission options are available. The ES base variant receives a five-speed manual transmission, while the mid-spec ES Mirage gets the an automatic CVT gearbox. The range-topping LS variant is only available with a CVT transmission.
In terms of safety, the Mirage gets Forward Collision Mitigation AEB as standard fitment range-wide while the range-topper gains Lane Departure Warning technology.
The Mirage also gets two additional exterior colour options, namely: Cool Silver Metallic and Sand Yellow Metallic – both of which are available for $740. The LS’s price is inclusive of metallic paint.
- ES (MT) - $14,990 ($16,490 drive-away)
- ES (CVT) - $16,490 ($17,990 drive-away)
- LS (CVT) - $17,490 ($18,990 drive-away with metallic paint)
