An ad for the Mitsubishi Attrage has just come up on our sister classifieds site oto.my, stating an estimated price range of RM65-70k for the Mirage-based sedan. It adds that the first batch of cars is expected in November, and bookings can be taken now.

Unofficial, of course, but if it does turn out to be so priced, the Attrage will wrestle the title of Malaysia’s least expensive import sedan from the RM66.8k Nissan Almera E manual when it launches towards the end of the year.

Built at the Laem Chabang Industrial Estate in the Thai province of Chonburi, the Mitsubishi Attrage is slightly bigger all-round than the Mirage, giving you more rear legroom and nearly double the luggage capacity at 450 litres.

The sub-tonne B-segmenter is motivated by a 78 PS/100 Nm 1.2 litre twin-cam three-cylinder engine that’s mated to a five-speed manual or INVECS-III CVT. A fuel consumption figure of 22 km per litre is touted.
