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 with a new geometric design. The infotainment system is 7-inches in size, and standard for all models. The unit now features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for all variants and is paired with up to 4 speakers for the top-of-the-line model.
The Mirage G4 is powered by a three-cylinder 1.2-liter engine. The 1.2-liter power plant produces 76 hp and 100 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheel either by a 5-speed manual or a CVT.
The sixth-generation Mirage G4 was launched in 2013 and is manufactured in Mitsubishi’s Santa Rosa Plant. It came in two body types a hatchback and a sedan. 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.
On August 28, 2021, Mitsubishi Philippines gave the vehicle an updated design as it would now come with the brand's signature dynamic shield design language. This facelift would change the entire front fascia of the vehicle giving new fenders, bumpers, hood, headlights, and tail lights as well. Other changes done to the vehicle would be the addition of a 7-inch infotainment system that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, updated upholstery, as well as a redesign to the instrument cluster.

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.
As part of its latest update, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 now comes with a 7-inch infotainment system that comes with Smart Phone Link Display Audio (SDA) as standard for all variants. It also has a radio tuner, Bluetooth, and USB port connectivity. Aside from this, the new head unit also now has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities.

Aside from this, the sedan also gets a new set of 15-inch wheels along with revisions done to the rear of the sedan that gives it a new set of tail lights along with a revised bumper.
The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 can be had in the following colors: Red Metallic, Cool Silver Metallic, Titanium Gray Metallic, and Solid White which is only available for the CVT variants and on a per dealer firm order basis.
The Mitsubishi Mirage for its latest update carries over the same interior layout as its older model, however, minor changes have been made to its instrument cluster which now comes with a carbon fiber design along with new red accents on the gauges. The seats, while still fabric, now have a geometric design as part of the sedan's facelift. A new 7-inch infotainment system has also been added to the vehicle and is now a standard feature for all of its variants. It now features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities.
