Mitsubishi announced several upcoming design changes for its lineup as they are heavily investing in upgrading and revising their offerings in the U.S. market. The 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage will be one of the first to receive this updated styling.
The Mirage is one of the few small car offerings available as many options like the Honda Fit, Chevy Sonic, and Toyota Yaris have all been discontinued for the 2021 model year. Although most consumers are moving away from the segment, updated styling and more available technology could help the Mirage stay fresh.
Inside, the Mirage comes with an updated 7-inch infotainment screen along with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
New for 2021 is the Carbonite Edition which adds a sporty look with carbon surfaces and red accents on the front grille, rear air dam, and side air dams.
The 2021 Mirage will remain available with only one engine choice: a 1.2-liter 3-cylinder rated at 78 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque. As far as safety is concerned, the Mirage will carry on as one of the most affordable vehicles with standard automatic emergency braking. Lane departure warning and automatic high-beams will be available only on the top-of-the-line SE trim.
