Mitsubishi has teased its duo of compact models, the Attrage and Mirage which are due to be launched in facelifted form on November 18 in Thailand. As seen in the teaser image here, the forthcoming updated models will wear the Japanese automaker’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ frontal treatment, already employed on the company’s larger models such as the Triton pick-up truck and the Expander MPV.

The A-segment sedan and hatchback adapts the Dynamic Shield face from its larger siblings with headlamp designs that are not as narrow as those on the aforementioned models, while the chrome split ‘X’ visually connects the base of the headlamp to the middle and the lower edge of the front bumper.

This iteration of the Mirage is the second facelift for the sixth-generation car, which was launched in 2011 and which received its first facelift in 2015. Classed as Phase 2 eco cars in Thailand, these were powered by the company’s 1.2 litre three-cylinder engine that is paired to either a five-speed manual gearbox or CVT. Phase 2 regulations require that CO2 emissions not exceed 100 g/km and consumption of at least 23.25 km/litre, and are likely to be carried over for this update, Headlight Mag reported last month.

The new look for the Mirage and Attrage is the latest application of the Dynamic Shield face, following the third facelift of the Mitsubishi ASX crossover which made its debut earlier this year, as well as the eK Wagon and eK X kei-class models launched in April.

Manufactured in the Laem Chabang Plant of Mitsubishi Motors Thailand, 140,000 units of the Mirage and Attrage were sold in the 2018 financial year, the automaker noted.
