    Philippines: Mirage G4 sedan GLS CVT review (AutoIndustriya.com)



    Mitsu needs a sedan if it wants to compete in the Philippines' vehicle class with the largest volume. Thus the Mirage G4 (a.k.a. Attrage).

    Fuel economy note: the reviewer achieved 18.9 km/L (5.3 L/100 km = 44.5 MPG US) on the open road "without any undue eco-driving tactics", not far off the car's 21 km/L rating. In the city: 10.2 km/L, which he considered "pretty good".

    Pros:

    - nicer interior colour palette than the hatchback = more upscale appearance
    - one of the more comfortable driver's seats in the segment
    - massive trunk space for the segment (3 golf bags)
    - fuel economy "well above the standard for its class"
    - safety equipment

    Cons:

    - "sedate" performance from the 1.2L / CVT combination
    - suspension/steering settings are soft/light, so not as engaging as a Mazda2 or Fiesta
    - wind & tire noise

    Overall:

    ... [it] isn't what we would call a revelation, but at PhP 718,000 for this top-of-the-line GLS CVT... [it] makes for a very sensible and attractive proposition

    Mind you, Manila traffic is what you'd consider "utterly dreadful".

    Seriously, since these things have been introduced last October, they've proliferated like mushrooms. At last count, there are at least three parked within 200 meters of my house right now.

    OMG I just love the Mirage sedan. Hope it will come to Europe!! Definitely be the next car to exchange/upgrade in 2 years from the SpaceStar/Mirage.
