2018 Mitsubishi Mirage And Mirage G4 Gain A 7-Inch Infotainment System

Mitsubishi has announced a series of updates to the 2018 Mirage and Mirage G4.

Currently arriving at dealerships across the United States, the entry-level Mirage ES gains a handful of useful features including a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity. The model also receives a rearview camera and a steering wheel with new Bluetooth controls.

The Mirage SE and GT largely carryover but the models now have a center armrest and a USB port in the center console.

The Mirage G4 ES has all of the features from its hatchback counterpart as well as a trunk pass-through and a new USB port. Additional changes are limited but include an armrest on the SE variant and an updated ES Smartphone Package with 15-inch alloy wheels.

Both models are powered by a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that promises to deliver a “harmonious blend of lively acceleration and efficiency.” Drivers shouldn’t get their hopes up as the engine develops 78 hp (58 kW) and 74 lb-ft (100 Nm) of torque. On the bright side, the Mirage returns up to 43 mpg highway.

Pricing starts at $13,395 for the Mirage while the Mirage G4 retails for $14,395.

  • FOR A WHILE THERE MITSUBISHI MADE SOME NICE LOOKING CARS. I CAN’T IMAGINE A 7″ INFOTAINMENT SCREEN IS ENOUGH TO PULL IN BUYERS FOR SUCH A DREARY CAR.

    I think Mitsubishi is going in the right direction fixing this car. Let’s be honest, it was a shame when it came out a few years ago. It now slowly becomes interesting for an inexpensive subcompact car. Now, dear Mitsu, if you could do that with the rest of your lineup, that’d be great!

      110% agree.

  • Dennis Scipio

    I think by the 2019 model year, these vehicles should have turbo charged 3 cyl. engine which will make the car more competitive than it was before.

      I think they announced it for that timeline, could be wrong.

    Well they better make you happy staying inside those things… because they look so dull and boring!

    And that pretty much covers the R&D budget this century for this model.
