The Attrage receives a facelift, so its basic dimensions and concept remain unchanged. It looks like a compact sedan alright – a large, bubble-like glasshouse (that’s the window section) and modest three-box sedan shape. No boats rocked here.
In front, it now has the New Mitsubishi look seen on the Eclipse Cross SUV with the signature twin, inwards-pointing chrome strips, a darkened grille section, and redesigned LED headlamps with DRL strips underneath.
Around the back there are LED taillights to match, they’re now ringed by a black ‘eyeliner’ strip. The car still wears 15-inch wheels, although they’re a new design and now silver instead of the previous dark gray colour.
Obviously it won’t set your heart alight with desire, but it firmly achieves what a facelift should: Make a car look more attractive and up-to-date.
The Attrage still has that slightly awkward ‘boot-grafted-onto-a-hatchback’ look, but compact sedans all kind of do, and there are at least good reasons for that.
