The press service of the Japanese automaker has published photos of the 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage compact sedan and the restyled version of the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander crossover.

The Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 will receive a redesign as part of the Japanese brand’s major lineup update in the US, which is slated for completion by the second quarter of 2021.

The first of the revised vehicles to hit the market in the country will be the updated Outlander crossover in a plug-in hybrid version of the PHEV – due in the fourth quarter of 2020. It is known that the car will receive an internal combustion engine with more power than now. The improved hybrid system increases the overall range as well as the number of kilometers the car can travel in pure electric mode.

The compact 2021 Mirage and Mirage G4 models will go on sale in the first quarter of 2021.

According to a new teaser image of the Japanese novelty, the model received a new “nose”. The headlights are sharper. The entire front of the car is more reminiscent of that of the Outlander crossover with chrome elements in the form of brackets and fog lamps in the corners.

The Outlander PHEV uses a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder that produces 126 horsepower. There are also two 93 hp electric motors. The car will receive a 13.8 kilowatt * hour battery, whereas now the car has a 12 kW * hour battery.

The next generation of the compact Outlander, which will be marketed as a 2022 SUV, will go on sale in the second quarter of 2021. The company promises that “the crossover looks bolder and will be the quietest and most equipped Mitsubishi ever sold in the US.”

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Mitsubishi would completely abandon the production of Pajero. The sale of the car in the Japanese home car market stopped last year. Now the same fate awaits export destinations.
