Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi began building vehicles all the way back in 1917 with the introduction of the Model A (based on the Fiat Tipo). During the 1950s the Japanese company restructured itself to become one of the most successful car companies in the world. In Australia, Mitsubishi sells seven different models including the popular Mirage, Lancer, Outlander, Pajero & Triton. Mitsubishi is currently the seventh best selling brand. It once built the Magna and 380 vehicles locally but has now become a full-time importer of Japanese vehicles.

The Mitsubishi Lancer's decade-long run as the diamond brand's small car is set to end in August this year, reports out of the US suggest.

Facelift fails: The worst styling updates of 2016

Facelifted models are supposed to add some flair to an existing model - to bring it up to speed with its competitors, or harden up some edges that may been looking a little limp on the original model.

2002 Mitsubishi Verada Ei Review

My secondhand Verada Ei Wagon has been a very reliable car. I bought it in 2015 for $2500 drive-away. It had 252,000km on the odometer at purchase and now has done 275,000km. Average fuel economy is 10.8L/100km. The car drives and handles well around town and on the open roads. The engine is smooth and quiet, and we have not had any problems with it so far...

2011 Mitsubishi Pajero Gl LWB (4x4) review

My Pajero is a very reliable 4WD. Purchased second-hand two years ago at 60,000km. I've since taken it out 118,000 km and it's never missed a beat. The manual gearbox is so economical and I love driving it as it's so solid. Tackled the Flinders Ranges for a month back in 2015 including tackling some service roads and it was amazing...

2015 Mitsubishi Asx XLS (4wd) Review

The ownership experience has been good to date. The 6 speed non CVT auto together with the 2.3 turbo diesel provides good performance for its class. There is some mid range lag at times but the engine transmission combo is more than adequate. It comes with loads of features as standard including heated seats, reverse camera, DAB radio, auto wipers and lights, electric drivers seats, folding side mirrors, proximity key...

2007 Mitsubishi 380 VR-X Review

Having just written off my first car, and feeling quite nostalgic about its loss, I have decided to reflect upon my 8 month ownership of my silver Mitsubishi 380 VRX with a automotive eulogy of sorts. I was given this car as an 18th birthday present by my grandmother, who was downsizing to something more appropriate for a 79 year old (Corolla, of course)...
