Redesigned 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage Coming to North America

2021 Mitsubishi Mirage - Subcompact Culture

News just came in from Mitsubishi Motors North America that the reskinned 2021 Mirage and Mirage G4 will be coming to the U.S. and Canada. Despite the company talking about pulling back in certain markets, Mitsubishi has plans for North America and it includes the strong-selling Mirage.

Details aren't plentiful on the North American-spec '21 Mirage yet. According to a press release, the refreshed Mirage will go on sale Q1 of 2021 as a '21 model.

"With an extensive exterior redesign, the U.S.'s most fuel-efficient non-hybrid gasoline-fueled vehicle becomes an even more compelling value. Mirage has never looked richer or better equipped, with bold styling and standard safety equipment putting it into a new level of consideration," says the release.

We fully assume its specs will be the same as other global markets as we reported in November 2019. This includes the retention of the miserly 78 hp 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine, CVT or five-speed manual transmission, but with a restyled front, rear, and new upholstery. I happen to love the new yellow paint, by the way. We'll be sure to report on other changes as we're notified.

This is a bit of good news for the subcompact car market as other brands continue to axe their smallest offerings.

Mitsubishi also announced significant changes to the rest of its model lineup which signifies to us that the brand isn't intending to leave the U.S. market anytime soon despite many naysayers.
