The Mitsubishi Attrage's low weight and small powertrain translate that this is a car that will remain fuel efficient no matter how hard you decide to drive it. Powered by a 1.2-litre DOHC engine that produces 77bhp and 100Nm of torque, it averages fuel consumption figures of 13.5km/L even with a heavy right foot. This compact sedan is undoubtedly an attractive choice that's capable on city streets and easy on the wallet.
  • I test-drove the Attrage after being attracted by its headline low price. I really wanted to like this car so I could buy it, because I can't help feeling cars are overpriced in Singapore, having lived overseas a long time. Unfortunately, the experience was so underwhelming I couldn't look back as we walked away.
    The first thing you'll see is how small the wheels are. Small wheels mean bumps are harder, and it showed when we were on the road. The steering also felt heavy for a relatively light car (coming from a Vios). And finally the 3-cylinder engine really struggled to pick up when needed. It would almost be a certainty that you would over-rev the engine, throwing its wonderful theoretical fuel economy out the window. It is not something you want to drive in a hurry. It did not take a long drive to realise I would hate owning it.
    Unless you really can't afford the mainstream makes (Elantra, Vios, City, Cerato, etc.), and are probably supplementing the costs by driving it as a PHV on the side, avoid.

  • This car is point A to point B car. Nothing to complain except the engine. Noisy when pushed a bit. Slow to pick up speed but it's expected from a 1.2 engine. Fuel consumption is quite good & cabin feels good and spacious. Rear seat can accommodate medium size 3 adults but the suspension might not be able to take it if too many humps.

  • Been driving this around for about 3 months so far.
    I call this a Cheap and Good Family car because its precisely that. Its cheap (I literally filtered by price, ruled out the china car, tested the Perodua and decided that for slightly more getting 4 more air bags was totally worth it.
    Good - Depends on your own definition. Its my first ever car, didn't know much of what to expect so from my perspective, it gets me from point A to B. For the way I drive, the petrol is about 150 a month(OPC). Comes with random features that you'll never smell within this price range (e.G. Keyless entry, remote boot open, Bluetooth inbuilt and even spotify on the Head unit.
    Family car - I got a car because of my kid. Fit in a full sized baby car seat in the back but I can always fit 2 adults behind (my wife and dad aren't tiny either. I use the term family car also because its really not that fast, but its not supposed to. I'm bringing my family around, last thing I should be doing is speeding with them in it.
    Overall I've recommended it to family and friends on basis that they're looking for cheap and value for money. For the bells and whistles they have at this price point, there's not many things left to add to the car.
    Definitely value for money. If you're rich, get something better, if you just need/want a car for functional purposes, get this. Especially if you're one of those people that likes to customise stuff, there's lesser things to add to this car than say a K3 that comes with no bells and whistles. (Keyless entry is awesome, never have to take out my keys)

  • This car caught my attention when I went to the showroom. The car was attractive and looked good. I actually wanted to go for the lancer but thought the attrage had everything I needed ranging from hooks to cup holders.This car is good for shopaholics like me as this car has a generous boot space of 450l. Try for yourself and you will definitely say the same.

  • I have been looking for a change after my Honda jazz is due for scrap, went to text drive altis, camry, attrage, lancer, kia. I have eventually decided on attrage as it's the most budget car in the market as COE was high during Dec 2016 $55k !! If you are looking at A to B car, this car comes as a surprise especially I am looking for comfort rather than power/speed.

  • The Attrage is an affordable runabout for the city, but despite its price tag it offers excellent value for money for the budget consumer.
    For the money there is keyless entry and engine start-stop, which is highly impressive for a car in this class.
    It is also very frugal. 20km/L is achievable on a light foot. Good for those who drive often.

  • Come across Attrage during Nov 2016 Car Show at Singapore Expo. My first impression is: "Not Bed!"
    Proceed to test drive this fashionable ECO Sedan the following weekend. With a 1.2L DOHC 3-cylinder in line 12-valve MIVEC engine, its Power (78Ps) & Torque (100Nm) may seemed unimpressive but the drive is comfortable & fun. Thank to its INVECS-III CVT gearbox, acceleration / deceleration become silky smooth. Class leading turning radius of 4.8m make it easy to make U-turns & cut corners in tight Singapore road conditions. Do not expect it to offer fast pickup though as 0-100Km requires 14 seconds. Overall, I had an agile & relaxed drive!
    Externally, Attrage looks simple but modern. Its front grill offers onlookers with a "Smiley face" That would cheer anybody up. It's aerodynamic body allows it to slip through the wind and lower noise, raise fuel efficiency, while enhance handling stability. With a solid RISE constructed body of high tensile strength steel weighting only 905Kg, no wonder Attrage could offer 20.8Km/L fuel ecomony.
    Internally, Attrage offers ample legrooms front & back for up to 5 passengers. Its a pleasant surprise to see Attrage equipped with Keyless Entry, Start/Stop Engine Button, Full Auto Air-conditioner and a sizable 450L boot space.
    Overall, Attrage is an excellent little work horse offering safe & comfortable transportation from point A to point B. For those in need of an entry level but well equipped car with large boot space and superb fuel efficiency, Attrage is an ideal choice.
    I had placed my order and had secured a COE for an Attrage. Would you follow suit?

Winner of last year's Compact Sedan of the Year title, Mitsubishi's small sedan continues to rule as the number one little city car that's big on doing what it does well.

Born in an era of engine downsizing, this fuel-efficient 1.2-litre sedan continues to win hearts and minds. Easy to drive, functional, inexpensive to buy and frugal to run, the Attrage has revolutionised the compact car segment with its outstanding fuel economy and cheap running costs.

Measuring 4,245mm x 1,670mm x 1,515mm (L x W x H), the Attrage is bigger and more practical than its hatchback sibling (not available in Singapore) but smaller than most of its other rivals in the market.

Despite its compact dimensions, the Attrage's cabin is surprisingly spacious thanks to its long wheelbase of 2,550mm. This translates to a generous amount of leg and headroom in the back for three adults. Plus, its 450-litre trunk is capable of swallowing a pram, child's seat, foldable bicycles, and golf or grocery bags depending on the type of lifestyle of its driver.

Mitsubishi's designers have also successfully eliminated the hatchback-to-sedan stigma by giving the Attrage a swooping roofline and sporty stance. In addition to that, its sharp-looking head lights make it look mature and sophisticated.

The Attrage's CVT gearbox accentuates its naturally aspirated engine's willingness to help pedal the 905kg car along at a respectable pace. Its low weight and small engine also mean this car won't need too many stops at the petrol kiosk.

Ticking all the right boxes for a practical compact sedan, you and the family can rest assured that the Attrage is the best in its class. More importantly, for a city car that's always caught in stop-start traffic, the Attrage's frugal fuel economy has certainly gone a long way.
