Look: Sporty details for the Space Star
Since its facelift in 2020, the Space Star has finally had the current brand face of Mitsubishi, which means above all that the radiator grille has grown significantly and merged with the air intakes of the apron. Visually, this ensemble takes up almost the entire front and is framed on the left and right by metal decorative elements. Two red stripes run horizontally at the level of the brand logo and give the car a sportier look.
The headlights, redesigned for the facelift, are no longer separated by a sheet metal strip, but seem to merge into the radiator grille. For this, Mitsubishi has put the fog lights one level higher with the Space Star facelift, so that they are now positioned in black, square frames with sporty stripes over the apron. Less changed at the rear, but the new rear apron with a hinted diffuser gives the car a sportier appearance.
