Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Overview
The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is the Japanese automaker’s entry into the subcompact sedan segment. It’s the sedan version of the Mirage hatchback. It features the same cabin space as the hatchback version but with extra trunk space. With its body configuration, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 sedan addresses the concern of many Filipino families who want a sedan but would like to retain the distinctive characteristics of the original Mirage – fuel efficiency and value for money.
The Mirage G4’s interior is black and comes with black fabric seats. The infotainment comes in a 2-DIN form factor as standard but the inclusion of a touchscreen will depend on the variant. Sound is sent via four speakers for the GLS variant and 2 for the GLX. Both head units are Bluetooth capable and have an auxiliary input.
The Mirage G4 is powered by a three-cylinder 1.2-liter engine. The 1.2-liter power plant produces 77 hp and 100 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheel either by a 5-speed manual or a CVT.

It is powered by a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine that can come with a CVT or a 5-speed manual transmission. The subcompact vehicle comes standard with a 2-DIN radio that can be had with a touchscreen depending on the variant.
Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Chassis, Platform & Powertrain
The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 comes with a 1.2-liter 3A92 gasoline engine. The 1.2-liter 3-cylinder naturally-aspirated engine produces 77hp and 100 Nm of torque. It has McPherson struts with coil springs with stabilizer bars for the front suspension. The rear, on the other hand, gets torsion beam suspension. The engine can be had with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT.
Stopping power comes from 14-inch ventilated discs up front and 8-inch leading and trailing drums in the rear. To add more stopping power it comes with an 8-inch master vacuum brake booster. The subcompact sedan rides on 185/55R15 wheels and tires. Wheels come in the form of 15x5 Alloy wheels with a dark chrome finish.
Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Driving Performance
The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a light and nimble city car, with an emphasis on the latter because of its diminutive size. Its 3-cylinder power plant is responsive to throttle inputs, plus the lightweight construction is an advantage to the small yet capable engine. The CVT, however, is one of its weakest trait as it does give you a hard time before you could get a satisfying pull from the small sedan.
Handling-wise, the Mirage G4 is just okay on open roads but a champion in the city. The light steering feel and wide driving visibility make maneuvering in tight spaces a cinch.

Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Pros and Cons
What you'll love about the Mirage G4 is its frugality. The 1.2L engine doesn't consume too much fuel, provided that you drive the vehicle within its supposed limit. You'll also love the car's maneuverability within the city and the relatively ample space in its cabin.
On the other hand, the Mirage G4 needs improvement in its CVT. Cabin NVH insulation also needs work but that's quite expected from a car of this price point.
