Reader Stephen Khong managed to snap this picture of the sixth-gen Mitsubishi Mirage near Ara Damansara, not too far from Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia’s office in Saujana. We last spotted an example in April, just a week or so after it began production at the Laem Chabang plant in Thailand.
That car, which had its face and rear covered up, had a rear roof spoiler with integrated third brake light, and was painted in Eisen Grey Mica. This one is painted in what appears to be Pop Green Metallic – another exterior colour option for us, perhaps – and the roof spoiler is clearly visible.
No official word yet on when we’ll be getting the Mirage here, if at all, but we do know there has been considerable interest in the car across the border, with more than 15,000 orders received in the first month.
The Mirage has a 1.2 litre 3A92 three-cylinder MIVEC making 78 PS at 6,000 rpm and 100 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm.
