Mitsubishi Mirage G4 2020 - 2021 Overview
Although the Mirage G4 is not as trendy looking as its five-door counterpart, the mature sedan has an advantage in terms of practicality, thanks to its big trunk and longer wheelbase. For 2018, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 got a restyled extended rear bumper and new taillight. In terms of safety, this sedan features an anti-lock braking system and dual airbags present on all variants.
Stepping inside the Mirage G4, occupants will be welcomed by a black interior accompanied by black fabric seats. A standard 2-DIN form factor infotainment system is also featured in the sedan's cabin. A touch screen is available depending on the trim-level. Sound is transmitted through two speakers for GLX variant and four speakers for GLS. All head units have auxiliary input and Bluetooth capability.
Under the hood, a 1.2L gasoline engine, in-line 3-cylinder 12-valve DOHC, powers the Mitsubishi Mirage G4. This engine pumps out 77 horsepower and 100 Newton-meter of torque. The power is delivered to the front wheels either by a CVT or five-speed manual transmission.
The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 was first introduced in 2013 as a concept vehicle at the Bangkok Auto Show. It was initially called the Concept G4 Sedan. Later on, the Japanese automaker finally decided to launch the sedan. That same year, the sixth-generation Mitsubishi Mirage G4 was launched in the Philippines and was manufactured in Mitsubishi's plant in Santa Rosa.
The Mirage G4 is based on its hatchback counterpart, which is the Mitsubishi Mirage. It is safe to say that the sedan is the Mirage's extended version. However, Mitsubishi did few aesthetic changes on the Mitsubishi Mirage G4, which helped us differentiate the sedan from the hatchback.
Mitsubishi made sure that the Mirage G4 will look different from its hatchback sibling. The Mirage hatchback looks youthful, energetic, and sportier, while the Mirage G4 gives us an impression of a more mature vehicle with bold, composed, and calm look.
Mitsubishi Mirage G4 features a Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body. The trunk and the chrome grilles differentiated this sedan from its hatchback siblings. The Mirage G4 also got halogen multi-reflector headlights and fog lights that come as a standard in the GLS variant. The whole lineup features standard 15-inch wheels.
Mitsubishi Philippines offers the Mirage G4 GLS variants in eight color options Pyrenese Black, Virgil Gray, Sundance Orange, Savanna White, Medium Blue Mica, Majestic Red, Cool Silver, and Wine Red Pearl. The GLX variants are also available in these color options except the Sundance Orange and Medium Blue Mica.
Because of a longer wheelbase, the Mirage G4 provides a more spacious cabin than the Mirage hatchback. The Japanese carmaker made sure that the extra wheelbase will be utilized so five people can be comfortably accommodated in the sedan.
The interior of the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is dominated by black with silver accents on the AC vents. The only seating material available in the sedan is fabric. A 2-DIN stereo that comes as a standard is mounted at the center console. A touchscreen is available depending on the variant. It comes with an eco-assist lamp and a multi-information display.
The trunk space of the Mirage G4 is 348 liters.
Technology & Safety features
The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 features a 2-DIN touchscreen infotainment system that measures 6.75 inches. It comes with USB port, Aux-in, iPod compatibility, tuner, and Bluetooth connectivity with mirror link feature. A touchscreen is not available in GLX MT trim, but it comes with the same features available in other variants. Four speakers and GPS navigation come as a standard in GLS variants. The GLX, on the other hand, does not have a GPS and only has two speakers.
Safety is not compromised in this sedan. The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is equipped with driver and passenger SRS airbags, three-point seat belts with pre-tensioners, and ELR. The three-point seatbelts for rear passengers come as standard in the sedan.
The anti-lock braking system is only available in GLS trims. The GLX is not equipped with ABS as standard. GLS variants also have additional safety features like ISOFIX anchors and Brake Override System.

Engine & Drivetrain
Mitsubishi Motor Philippines Corporation offers the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 in a single-engine option only. Under the hood of the Mirage G4 lies the 1.2L inline-3 gasoline power plant that comes with Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control System (MIVEC). It generates a maximum power of 77 horsepower and 100 Newton-meters of torque.
Thankfully, the Japanese carmaker provided two transmission options; a Continuously Variable Transmission or a five-speed manual gearbox.
The lightweight and aerodynamic design of the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 compensated the vehicle’s less engine power. It allows the sedan to achieve the top speed of 172 kilometers per hour.
