Mitsubishi Motors debuted its Thai-made 2021 Mirage (aka Space Star) and Mirage G4 (aka Attrage) in Thailand yesterday. The new subcompact hatchback and sedan receive an exterior and interior refresh, and how feature the company's Dynamic Shield front end. Both cars will be on display at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2019 on November, 28.

The company says the Dynamic Shield makes the car appear wider with a more powerful look. The car now also has the same frontal design language as the rest of the Mitsubishi lineup Of note, the headlights receive a multi-bulb treatment for increased visibility. Mitsubishi notes that two new colors are available: White Diamond and Sand Yellow.

In addition to the Dynamic Shield language, you can also see revised rear fascias and wheel options. Finally, the interior sports new trims, armrests, and fabrics.Upper trim levels are offered with a special seat design with a synthetics leather option.
New Mirage Interior

The Mirage community wasn't sure if 2021 would be a completely new Mirage based on the Nissan Micra platform or if we'd get a significant refresh, but the latter is obviously true. Specifics are still few and far between, but the vehicle will apparently retain its 1.2-liter 3A92 engine mated to either a CVT or five-speed manual transmission, although this was not specified by Mitsubishi's press release.

Yellow Mitsubishi Mirage
I really like the yellow hatchback above, which offers a more sporty character compared to the current version. And while it likely won't be any faster, it will offer more comfort and tech. This includes items like a newly adopted smartphone display audio (SDA) system with seven-inch display. Assuming the car retains the 1.2-liter engine, it will continue to offer stellar fuel economy for a gasoline-powered vehicle.
2021 Mitsubishi Attrage
The Mirage has been a bright spot in Mitsubishi Motors' U.S. sales portfolio as the small, inexpensive cars keep increasing sales month over month. Year-to-date sales are up nearly 11% for 2019 vs. 2018. Cumulative global sales of both the Mirage and Mirage G4 are upwards of 930,000 as of September, 2019. That breaks down to 650,000 hatchbacks and 280,000 sedans globally.

It should be noted that this was a global release and there are no details that pertain specifically to the North American market.
