2016 Mitsubishi Challenger spied

The 2016 Mitsubishi Challenger SUV has been caught on the road undergoing testing ahead of its potential debut later this year. The new-generation Challenger remains based upon the Triton ute, and like the new version of that pick-up, the SUV spin-off appears to have grown in length while also taking on a different design...

Mitsubishi Outlander facelift teased front and rear before NY reveal

The facelifted Mitsubishi Outlander has been teased via a set of officially sanctioned photos of the SUV's front and rear. Although Mitsubishi's official teaser of the Outlander's updated front doesn't reveal anything that we haven't seen before in previous leaks, it does confirm that the company's family-friendly SUV is endowed with a completely redesigned, chrome-heavy front-end modelled on last year's PHEV S-Concept...

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Review: farewell to our long-termer

After six months of petrol-electric SUV driving, the time has come to return our Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Over the period of our loan we learnt of things a lot about the car - some positive, some negative - but we still feel it offers unrivalled practicality at a price that no other plug-in hybrid car can compete with.

Mitsubishi Lancer development shelved

Mitsubishi Motors is no longer planning any development of sedans, meaning replacements for core models such as the aged Lancer won’t materialise for years — if at all. The decision to freeze sedan development in the face of stiff competition, and to focus on SUVs, comes on the heels of Mitsubishi’s proposed co-operation with Renault to source C- and D-segment cars — a plan that has now fallen through...

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander spotted with no camouflage

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander has been caught with no disguise ahead of its local debut in April. Mitsubishi had given buyers an idea of what to expect from the updated model with its Outlander PHEV Concept-S show car, which debuted in 2014, but it is clear that some of the sharper lines haven't carried over to the production model based on these images, posted on Brazilian website Carplace...

Mitsubishi plots 'king of PHEVs' to wear Evo badge

Mitsubishi Motors is looking at a viable way to create a dedicated performance plug-in hybrid model — a model it wants to endow with all-wheel-drive and its hallowed Evolution, or Evo, badge. However, a new-generation Lancer remains years way at best — and the program is dead at worst — meaning the next Evo model will have to be based on another Mitsubishi model...

A report claims that Mitsubishi is in talks with Nissan regarding shared product development, with the three-diamond brand focussing on a replacement for the Lancer.

Suzuki Celerio v Mitsubishi Mirage : Comparison review

Snobs are not welcome here. Through the ages micro cars that are slammed by many as uninspiring tin cans on wheels have actually afforded their owners the best of simple pleasures.

Over the weekend, Mitsubishi North America executive vice president Don Swearingen told a dealers' conference that plans to base two future Mitsubishi models on platforms from the Renault-Nissan alliance had stalled, but refused to elaborate on the reasons...

Mitsubishi compact SUV concept previews next ASX

Mitsubishi will take the wraps off a new compact SUV concept at the 2015 Geneva motor show in March, and the car could offer some clues to the design of the next-generation Mitsubishi ASX. Described as “a declaration of intent for Mitsubishi Motor Corporation’s future direction”, the compact, five-door crossover appears to be an evolution of the XR-PHEV concept that debuted more than 12 months ago at the 2013 Tokyo motor show...

If you have a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in the driveway, you can (in Japan at least) use the stored electrical energy to power your home.
