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.

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander LS review

Yes, it's boring, and yes, it doesn't get your pulse racing, but the Outlander is an excellent and affordable option in this segment. We reckon the LS grade is the pick of the bunch too.

2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross ES review: Quick drive

Upmarket is in vogue right now, with more mainstream automakers making ‘near premium’ claims of new products. Meanwhile Mitsubishi positions itself as a brand for the people with a new cheaper version of the Eclipse Cross.

Melbourne v Sydney in the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: Trial by roadtrip

Sponsored by: Mitsubishi It's a rivalry almost as old as the hills that surround them, and a fierce loyalty is rooted deep within each citizen: Sydney and Melbourne, united against the world, perhaps, but otherwise bitter and fierce enemies. Alright, we're exaggerating. Melbourne or Sydney, we're all Aussies cut from (more or less) the same cloth...

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross LS review

See the full article here. From a global perspective, the Eclipse Cross plays the role of a brand ambassador, designed to convey the most avant-garde aspects of Mitsubishi’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ design ethos. Even the name, derived from a long-discontinued American-market coupe, has been specifically chosen to convey the dynamic and aesthetic goals Mitsubishi has aspired to...

2018 Dual-cab ute mega test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up...

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV on ice

Honda HR-V v Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross v Subaru XV comparison

Small crossover SUVs with a predominantly urban focus have taken over the road. Just look around you. But the segment has splintered into a few directions exemplified by the trio you see here. They’re similar in most ways, but differ enough to corner specific subsets...

2018 Dual-Cab Ute Mega Test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Consider, for a moment, that the eight most popular dual-cab models managed 193,000 sales in Australia last year, which equals 16 per cent of the entire new vehicle market...

Ute mega test: How do the tubs stack up?

They’re more likely to carry dirty nappies and road bikes than a bale of hay, but all eight of the cars on our 2018 dual-cab mega test are, you know, dual-cab utes. That means they still need to be fit for hard work. Has the transition to a life of luxury undermined the inherent practicality of these one-time work vehicles? Here’s a look at how the tray on each stacks up...

Mitsubishi expected to lead Alliance's pickup development

It looks like Mitsubishi Motors (MMC) will take a lead role in developing the pickup/ute platform used across the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance on the next-generation Triton (L200), Navara and Alaskan. We already know this ute trio will share a common architecture in (potentially) different states of tune, wearing different designs and with different cabins, but we now know MMC expects to be the Alliance member chosen to run the project...

2017 Mitsubishi ASX LS (2WD) review

"I need the quote, the whole quote, and nothing but the quote," I asked with my guilt-ridden neo-postmodern-quasi-proletariat fists clutching the table. The receptionist remained placid, and with a laconic smile shoved a taxi voucher into disbelieving fingers. "What's this?" I cried, willfully suspending my disbelief in the Jungian evilness of the collective society, however she remained calm as a latter-day class revolution on YouTube...

2001 Mitsubishi Magna Executive review

The year was 1997, and my parents were looking for a new car. Into my possession came a glossy brochure for the recently released TE Magna/KE Verada handed to us by the local Mitsubishi dealer. Showcasing a beautifully proportioned design made to cut through the air, I was captivated by its sharp lines, strong shoulders, sports car-style frameless side windows, and aerodynamic flag-style mirrors amongst many other design features...

2015 Mitsubishi Lancer GSR Sportback review

Buying my first car was always going to be a struggle between heart and head. The heart, of course, was saying “Go for the 10-year-old Alfa GT”. The head (and dad) was saying “Go for something new or near new and reliable”. Enter the Mitsubishi Lancer, a car that some might sarcastically argue is almost as old as my dad...

1997 Mitsubishi Magna Sports review

'Seeing red' is a phrase meaning to lose control. Just what happened when I saw this forlorn vehicle in the local classifieds. Tired, ringbarked and faded but with a straight body and the promise of a new clutch, the price was just enough to make me sidestep logic and buy car number three...
