The facelifted Mitsubishi Mirage is now on sale across UK dealerships with a starting price of £10,550. The Skoda Citigo and Hyundai i10 rival has undergone a heavy facelift, bringing it in line with Mitsubishi’s SUV range. The changes extend to the rear and inside with improvements to the materials and technology.
The Japanese manufacturer has comprehensively updated the front end with Mitsubishi’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ face, which features on other models in the range. This is made up of new LED multi-bulb headlamps, a new grille and the C-shaped metal strakes.
Around the back, the Mirage looks more purposeful and modern, with a chunkier rear bumper and L-shaped LED combination rear lights. New two-tone 15-inch alloy wheels and White Diamond and Sand Yellow are two new paint colours for the revised model.
Inside is less revolutionary with Mitsubishi instead focusing on quality improvements, which were criticised in the outgoing model. There is a faux carbon fibre instrument panel surround, soft cloth materials and the higher-spec models will introduce synthetic leather upholstery. The infotainment system now has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility.
The same 1.2-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine with 79bhp remains, although this was overhauled earlier in 2019 to comply with WLTP real-world driving emissions regulations. It produces 107g/km of CO2 and will return 60.1mpg.
There are three trim levels available, starting with the entry-level Verve that has a price tag of £10,550 and comes with a leather steering wheel, air conditioning, a height adjustable driver’s seat, Bluetooth, electric windows, remote central locking and a rear spoiler.
The mid-range Design trim features two-tone 15-inch alloy wheels, keyless engine start, Mitsubishi’s infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, faux leather upholstery and gear lever, a height adjustable passenger seat, red accents on the front grille, tinted rear windows and electric folding door mirrors. The Design model with a manual gearbox is priced from £12,495; the automatic starts at £13,315.
The First Edition is the range-topping Mirage model. It has LED headlights and daytime running lights, a chrome grille, rear parking sensors, heated seats, cruise control, climate control and front fog lights. It starts at £14,035 for the manual gearbox or £14,855 for the automatic.
