What we have here is certainly not the world’s most attractive car but it’s not meant to be that since it was designed to take you from point A to point B. Meet the 2014 Mitsubishi Attrage, a production version of the G4 concept which is scheduled to go on sale in Thailand in July. Mitsubishi is describing their new model as a next-gen global compact sedan which promises to provide “driving pleasure thanks to agility and pleasing driving dynamics.” In terms of styling, it has sweptback headlights, prominent grille and a bunch of chrome accents. It rides on small alloys and has turn signals built into the mirrors.
Power will come exclusively from a modest 1.2-liter MIVEC engine which will work together with either a standard 5-speed manual gearbox or an optional continuously variable transmission (CVT). The car should be capable of returning 51.7 mpg US (62.1 mpg UK or 4.5 liters / 100 km).
