Mitsubishi Motors Corporation announced that its next-generation
global compact sedan, to be named Attrage, will be launched in the
Thai market this July. The Attrage qualifies for the Thai government’s
Eco-car Project and will be produced at MMC subsidiary Mitsubishi
Motors (Thailand) third factory at the Laem Chabang Industrial Estate
in Chonburi province in Thailand.

The Attrage will bring styling befitting a next-generation global
compact sedan, featuring a short nose which delivers an outstanding
forward field of view, superior maneuverability with a class-leading
minimum turning radius of 4.8 meters, graceful and flowing side
proportions which balance aerodynamics and interior space among the
most generous in its class, sleek aerodynamics, with a dynamic
character line which kicks up towards the rear.

The Attrage is expected to achieve a fuel efficiency of 22 km/liter,
among the best in its class, achieved with a combination of
uncompromising weight reduction. A lightweight RISE (Reinforced Impact
Safety Evolution) body – the lightest in its class due to the
extensive use of high-tensile steel is combined with a compact 1.2-
liter MIVEC engine CVT with sub-geartrain or 5-speed manual. Excellent
aerodynamics provide a drag coefficient (CD) of 0.29, among the best
in its class.
