Mitsubishi launches new compact sedan in Saudi

RIYADH, December 28, 2017

Alesayi Motors, official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Saudi Arabia, recently hosted a ceremony launching the Mitsubishi Attrage, a new eco-friendly compact Sedan.

The ceremony was held in the presence of Masahiko Takahashi, president of Mitsubishi Motors Middle East & Africa FZE (MMMEA), said a statement.

Bandar Saeed Alesayi, CEO of Alesayi Motors, said: “The Attrage is a compact eco-friendly car, currently manufactured at the Mitsubishi Motors operation in Thailand.”

“Along with its very lightweight components and distinguished design, it boasts a frugal and efficient performance, which amounts to a combined class-leading fuel consumption of 22km/l,” he added.

“Thanks to its distinctive features in the compact car range, the new model is aptly positioned to achieve unprecedented success in the Saudi market for consumers looking to buy a car with such high-quality specifications under the Mitsubishi brand,” he continued.

The Attrage features a short nose, which delivers an outstanding forward field of view; it also enjoys superior manoeuvrability, with a class leading minimum turning radius of 4.8m making it easy to make U-turns & cut corners on tight and narrow road conditions.

The vehicle features well designed flowing side proportions, which balance aerodynamics and interior space are among the most generous in its class, as well as sleek aerodynamics, with a dynamic character line, which kicks up towards the rear.

Takahashi said: “The new Attrage’s lightweight and solid RISE body constructed with high tensile steel enhances driving safety, by effectively absorbing and dispersing crash energy.”

“Power comes from a responsive 1.2-litre three-cylinder MIVEC petrol engine that produces 78 hp, which is coupled with a five-speed manual gearbox or an automatic continuously variable transmission, which maintains optimal rpm for high performance and fuel economy, with a top speed of 170 km/hr,” he added.

It is noteworthy that Mitsubishi celebrates its centennial year as being the first Japanese automotive brand having introduced its first mass-production car in Japanese history in 1917.

Towards the end of the ceremony, Takahashi lauded Alesayi Motors’ efforts to enhance consumers’ confidence in Mitsubishi vehicles in the Saudi market, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
