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.

2020 Mitsubishi Mirage revealed

2017 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLS (4x4) 7 Seat review

When the last of the kids left home, the wife and I looked around and decided to take contract positions in far-western Queensland. We quickly realised that we needed something more than our Eco-hatch; we needed a large roo-bar and spotlights. I found a demo Pajero Sport with both items and west we went...

2019 Mitsubishi Triton GLS (4x4) review

My Triton was purchased in February 2019 - a December 2018 build and the second MR Triton sold by the dealer. It was purchased so that my wife and I could tow a camper trailer and go off the grid. Since purchase, there have been a few minor issues to do with the side windows which had faults in the glass, however these were dealt with quickly and the glass replaced at the dealership...

2013 Mitsubishi Lancer LX review

I like Mitsubishis even though I no longer drive one. Why? Price and reliability. In my household we have owned four Mitsus (equalling 25-plus years of ownership) and besides normal maintenance, tyres and batteries, we’ve only replaced the front brakes on one and some suspension bushes on another. Thats it. 25 years...

1992 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR (4WD) review

Well what can I say about Mitsubishi’s (CC) Lancer GSR? It was launched in Australia in 1992, it had 141kW, 255Nm of torque, AWD, and a kerb weight of just over a 1000 kilograms. It was a rocket; 0-100km/h was dispatched in 7 seconds, which does not seem fast these days, but back then a Falcon or Commodore V8 took 8 to 9 seconds, so that was quick...
