Refreshed 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage Hatchback Debuts With New Safety Features

Mitsubishi Canada today revealed the 2021 Mirage subcompact hatchback at the Montreal auto show, sporting new styling and new standard active safety features.

The latest makeover sees the little hatchback take on styling cues shared with the brand's crossovers, along with details like LED front combination lights and LED taillights, and a new 15-inch alloy wheel design.

Other changes include the addition of forward collision warning, pedestrian detection and automatic braking, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. Those features are new to the Mirage range for 2021.

Mirage occupants get new seat fabrics, and an available 7.0-inch infotainment display replaces the outgoing car's 6.5-inch screen.

Unchanged is the Mirage's powertrain, which is built around a 1.2L three-cylinder engine matched with a choice of five-speed manual and continuously variable automatic (CVT) transmissions. Mitsubishi says the Mirage is Canada's most fuel-efficient non-hybrid vehicle.

This marks the second time Mitsubishi has refreshed the Mirage since its arrival here in 2014 as the brand's entry-level model. The redesigned 2021 Mirage hatchback is set to arrive in Canadian showrooms this summer.
