Mitsubishi Debuts New Look for 2020 Mirage Hatchback
With 2020 on the horizon, many automakers are starting to come out with new updated versions of their 2019 models, and with that comes competition. One automaker that has been making strides this year in pushing the bar is Mitsubishi Motors. Most recently, the automaker debuted the Mitsubishi Mi-TECH Buggy at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, once again changing how plug-in hybrids operate with their turbine gas engine design. Although the most recent unveiling isn’t as ground-breaking, Mitsubishi has debuted a new look for their upcoming 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback. The new model is set to make its official appearance at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2019, November 28, 2019.
Recently, Mitsubishi Motors has been reworking its Dynamic Shield design, a staple and signature look for their vehicles, and the new look speaks volumes with the newly designed 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage. Check out the bust on the new front fascia. The new design is sharp and compact but wide and bold. Drawing attention to the nose of the vehicle, the new Dynamic Shield seems to stretch across the front of the car as another layer of protection. New angular headlights set off the front of the vehicle with a sporty look.
This sports car style runs through the rest of the vehicle, ending with a sharper and overall much better look rear. The 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage looks more like a sporty hatchback and less like a compact crossover this year, and it’s about time that it got its own style. Too many Mitsubishi Motors vehicles look like clones of one another.
Although the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage has a more sports car appeal, it’s still a hatchback. There are no reports on the powertrain but with the recent 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage powered by a 1.2-liter 78-horsepower engine, don’t expect to be breaking any quarter-mile records. Mitsubishi Motors may still play a part in rally car races, like the recent 2019 Rebelle Rally, but they still have yet to return to their rally car roots. Even so, upper-trim levels of the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage come with a sports car-inspired interior with fabric/synthetic leather combination upholstery, of piping and stitching added to the seat sides, and a special seat design that matches the sport carbon pattern of the dashboard. In the center is a Smartphone Display Audio (SDA) system with a 7-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities.
All of this rides on a new set of 15-inch alloy wheels to complete the look. The wheels also have their own design, a two-tone diamond-cut styling for a sharper look than ever. Until the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage makes its official debut, that just about wraps up all the information we currently have on the new hatchback. Remember, the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage will be on display at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2019, November 28, 2019.
One of Mitsubishi Motors’ most successful vehicles, with 650,000 units sold this year (as of September 2019), there will surely be a big turnout for the new Mirage. Stop by University Mitsubishi social media for all the latest on Mitsubishi Motors.
