Mitsubishi Mirage G4: Past vs. present

mirage-g4-1

The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is the Japanese automaker’s entry to the local subcompact sedan segment. Here, it competes against similarly-sized nameplates like the Hyundai Reina and the Kia Soluto.

It made its debut in the Philippine automotive scene back in 2013, and after eight years, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines (MMPC) gave the G4 a facelift. Just how far does it take the locally made subcompact sedan from its predecessor? Let’s find out as we pit its past against its present.

1. Dynamic design

One of the most obvious changes to the Mirage G4 is to its exterior styling. The five-door subcompact now dons the brand’s dynamic shield fascia worn by other updated nameplates in MMPC’s lineup including the Xpander, the Montero Sport, the Outlander, and the Strada.

The headlights and the front fog lamps that flank the radiator grille have also been redesigned to look more aggressive. The rear lighting setup also reflects the updates found on the front. It also got redesigned kicks although they’re still 15-inch alloys.

Genuine accessories are still available such as the front under grille garnish as well as front, side, and rear skirts.

2. Upgraded infotainment system

While the interior of the refreshed Mitsubishi Mirage G4 does look a lot like its predecessor, MMPC dropped the old 6.75-inch touchscreen audio head and replaced it with a slightly larger seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

The old audio unit had a tuner, aux-in and USB ports, and could play audio from an iPod or a Bluetooth device. And oh, it had Mirrorlink too.

Its replacement adds more modern functionalities like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

3. Rear camera

Last but not the least, the new Mirage G4 gets a rear-view camera which should help with maneuvering and parking in tight spots.

The updated seven-inch infotainment system doubles as a monitor for when you need a little help when backing up.

The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is currently offered in three variants: Mirage G4 GLX MT, Mirage G4 GLX CVT, and the Mirage G4 GLS CVT. Prices start from P769,000.
