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.

2022 Mitsubishi Pajero imagined as next-gen four-wheel-drive

The Mitsubishi Pajero came to the end of production this year, ending a four-decade run as a proven, capable four-wheel-drive.

1998 Mitsubishi Magna Sports review

Note: Car pictured is a press image (of a regular TF Magna) as no external images were provided. I purchased a 1998 Magna Sports in Cairns after many days looking for a car to drive back to Bundaberg after my brand new Honda was hit by a kangaroo. I finally found this Magna Sports with only one owner and the original 98,000km on the clock with logbooks...

2020 Mitsubishi ASX GSR (2WD) review

Purchased June 2020 Back Story I change up my cars every three to four years depending on warranty and boredom factor. My 2015 Tucson Highlander diesel was approaching end of warranty, had 66000km on the clock and so was time to make a change. Although in many ways the Tucson was one of the nicest cars I had ever owned (totalling eight so far) especially in terms of the ride and comfort...

2017 Mitsubishi Triton GLS (4x4) review

I was issued this ute as a new company-supplied work vehicle in October 2017. I have previously had a Hilux and a 3.2-litre Ranger dual-cab. As of today, I have traveled 118,000 kilometres in the Triton and it has had no issues whatsoever. I do a lot of interstate travel into NSW and SA from my base in Melbourne...

2019 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLS (4x4) 7-Seat review

With the sudden onset of Christmas and being advised by our Victorian families that it was our turn to host, and the Matriarch was "not up to the travel to Queensland", we opted to drive so that our children (okay, Schnauzers) could be with us. Rather than put 3700km on one of our cars (a Tiguan Diesel or a BMW 440i), we opted to rent a car...
