Mitsubishi released just one front three-quarter image of the Attrage upon unveiling the city-sized sedan last week, keeping the final design of the car’s back half and cabin a secret until now, with the official brochure appearing on Thai website MitsuBNT.
The Mitsubishi Attrage’s tail-lights are rounded and bold, combining cohesively with the large headlights and expressive front end.
The interior closely resembles the layout of the pint-sized Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback on which the Attrage is based, with the steering wheel, instrument cluster and components of the dashboard carried over into the sedan.
The Attrage will be manufactured alongside the Mirage at Mitsubishi’s Laem Chabang Industrial Estate assembly facility in Thailand.
It will launch in Thailand in July ahead of its anticipated Australian introduction during the first quarter of 2014.
Like the Mirage, the Mitsubishi Attrage features a 57kW/100Nm 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which can be teamed with either a five-speed manual or automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Mitsubishi says the Attrage will offer class-leading manoeuvrability thanks to its 4.8m turning radius and the lightest body in its segment through the extensive use of high-tensile steel. It also says the car’s aerodynamic performance and interior space will be among the best in class.
