Since 2014, the Mirage has been Mitsubishi’s entry in the subcompact city car class. Mitsu updated the car’s styling in 2017. There used to be a sedan variant called the Mirage G4 that was discontinued in 2019.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2021, the Mirage gets another update that brings fresh styling and adds new equipment to one of Canada’s most affordable cars. The new content comes to the mid-range SE and top-end GT models. We’ll detail the new kit in the standard features section.
Mitsubishi offers the Mirage in ES, SE and GT trim levels. All are powered by a 1.2L three-cylinder engine. ES comes with either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic (CVT). The CVT is standard in SE and GT.
ES comes with automatic climate control, 14-inch steel wheels with covers, power mirrors and front windows, LED taillights, auto-off headlights, a four-speaker stereo, and tilt-and-telescopic steering.
New to SE trim are 14-inch alloy wheels, a 7.0-inch touchscreen (replacing last year’s 6.0-inch display), and a driver’s seat integrated armrest. Carried over from last year are keyless entry, power locks, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
Finally, GT adds a suite of driver safety assists comprising lane departure warning, forward collision mitigation, and automatic high beams. Mitsubishi has also replaced last year’s HID headlights with LEDs and added a heated steering wheel. GT’s carry-over upgrades are heated seats, heated side mirrors, passive keyless entry, fog lights, and leather steering wheel and shifter trim.
Mitsubishi’s fuel consumption estimates for the Mirage are 7.1/5.8 L/100 km (city/highway) with the five-speed transmission, and 6.6/5.6 with the CVT.
