Here's Everything We Could Tell You About The 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage G4


It took some time getting here, but the refreshed Mitsubishi Mirage G4 finally has a Philippine launch date: August 28, 2021. Before the full unveil though, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines released a short teaser which you can watch below.

For those who’re conserving their data, or prefer to read things as supposed to watching them (like we do), we’ve tried to uncover as much detail as we could from their shadowy trailer.


Well, for starters, the new Mirage G4 is expected to gain the more aggressive dynamic shield design. It’s something already seen in the global Mirage and Mirage G4 (aka Attrage) which debuted all the way in November 2019, so the Philippine model is expected to get that new look. Sandwiching the new grille are re-shaped headlights that look to house multi-reflector headlamps. If that’s the case, the Philippine model won’t be getting LED headlights (those come with projector-type headlamps). Regardless of lighting, confirmed at each corner are new 15-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, we’re not entirely sure what to expect with the 2022 Mirage G4, but the teaser clearly shows steering wheel controls and what looks to be a three-spoke leather tiller. The gauges also look to be refreshed as well. Peer to the right and eagle-eyed readers will certainly spot an Apple CarPlay capable infotainment system. Whether this is something standard across what could likely be a two or three-vehicle line-up remains to be seen.


Mechanically, the new Mirage G4 is expected to carryover the current model’s 1.2-liter 3-cylinder MIVEC engine. The 3A92 makes 78 horsepower and 100 Nm of torque. While that doesn’t sound like much, it doesn’t have much weight to push around—940 kilograms at the most (based on the current model). The transmission is likely a 5-speed manual and a CVT.

The new Mirage G4 is expected to be sourced from Mitsubishi Motor Philippines’ Santa Rosa, Laguna assembly plant where the Mirage G4 and its hatchback sibling, the Mirage has been locally assembled since 2017.

Are you excited for the new Mirage G4?

  1. Still the same engine for the Mirage G4? Most likely lacking again in terms of features compared to others in the segment. I want more Filipinos to support the Mirage G4 and other locally manufactured vehicles, but Mitsubishi is shortchanging the Filipino customers here ☹️👎 - Mark J
