What makes the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 an ideal first sedan?

A first anything is an achievement; an unforgettable milestone that usually heralds an exciting new chapter in life.

That certainly holds true for anyone getting his or her first vehicle. What it represents ranges from the practical to the intangible. Having one’s own set of wheels makes the journey from Point A to Point B quicker and more convenient. Of course, in a real way, a car represents greater freedom. This sounds like a lot of weight put on the steel shoulders of one’s unforgettable first car.

A lot is figuratively and literally riding on the choice.

And while choosing a pre-loved vehicle is a legitimate option in the name of affordability, nothing can replace the joy and sense of achievement that the acquisition of a brand-new car brings. That means there’s room for error not just in practicality but in the “hey-this-will-be-my-first-car-so-make-count” department. Thus, one needs to be both prudent and discerning.

Having said that, let’s see why Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation is proffering the Mirage G4 as the perfect (and memorable) first.

Budget friendly

A realistic, practical (yes, we’ll use this word a lot) first car needs to be sensitive to the budget of the first-time motorist — who may be a college student on allowance or a newbie to the ranks of the employed. The cost of acquisition, plus friendly payment terms make it easier to pull the trigger on a purchase.  The Mirage G4’s frugality extends until after the purchase. The Euro 4-rated 1.2-liter 12-valve DOHC gasoline engine with Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) not only “generates dependable power and a 23kpl best rating in fuel efficiency. The Mirage G4 also offers features that makes the overall experience easy and convenient.”

Simple, elegant look

Simple doesn’t mean spartan, of course, and the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 has just the right number of features that make it neither bare nor overly ostentatious for its price point. A clean, distinct exterior gives it the familiar character and presence that many have grown to love. It gets a dark chrome diamond cut front grille, 15-inch dark chrome alloy wheels and LED turn signals. Looking good will surely add to the confidence of the first-time motorist.

Price-point surprises

Expecting the basics for a starter car is normal, but the Mirage G4 has a knack for delightful surprises. It’s a  vehicle that dispenses with the usual key, which makes it a rare breed in entry-level vehicles. The Mirage G4 busts through its price point with the Mitsubishi Keyless Operation System (KOS) that allows a convenient way to start/stop the engine.

The key fob also allows the driver to access other cool functions such as the courtesy lights (front and rear position lights and room lamp stay on for 30 seconds when the doors are unlocked) great for added security and for finding where you parked the Mirage G4 at night; and the Coming Home Lights (which stay on for 60 seconds after shutting off the engine) that also provide enhanced nighttime safety and security.

The tech convenience extends to its infotainment system within, predicated on a legible 6.75-inch touch screen that doubles as a GPS navigation display. Pairing and connection of devices is made possible through Aux-in, USB port, and Bluetooth.

Space

While it is technically a subcompact, the Mirage G4 can comfortably seat five adults. Second-row space usually suffers at this pricing, but this sedan begs to differ in this regard – boasting generous legroom of 1,725mm. Its trunk proves equally capacious as it is able to swallow 45 liters of cargo, which makes it a perfect companion for errands such as a grocery run.

Safety

Peace of mind and safety do not have a price tag. Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation doesn’t scrimp on the important stuff, as it “prioritizes customer safety above all.” The Mirage G4 gets dual SRS airbags and anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (in the GLS variant).

Proudly Philippine made

Capping off the array of benefits, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a product that gives back to the Philippines in more ways. It is MMPC’s entry to the government’s Comprehensive Automotive Resurgence Strategy (CARS) program that aims to develop the country as an automotive hub. Made at the MMPC facility Sta. Rosa, Laguna, employment is provided to more than 1,000 people.

Clearly, the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a gift that keeps on giving — an ideal first (or next) vehicle that gives a lot of bang for the hard-earned buck.
