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.

MountainTop Roll Cover review

How do you make a 4x4 ute more versatile? That huge space in the back is awesome, yes. But when it gets wet, isn’t lockable, and anybody can just straight-up jump in the back, is that rear end really that usable in the real world? We had this problem with our hard-working crew vehicle, a Mitsubishi Triton GLX+...

2019 Mitsubishi Triton GLS 4x4 review

It's priced like a challenger, but with the familiarity of an established brand. The 2019 Triton isn't Australia's freshest ute, though it could be one of the more compelling in its segment.

2019 Mitsubishi Triton GLS Premium review

The Mitsubishi Triton GLS Premium sits atop the updated workhorse range, and offers an impressive array of safety tech and a bluffer new look to cement its status.

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV ES ADAS review

It may be new and novel today, but plug-in hybrid technology will slowly infiltrate the mainstream. Right now, Mitsubishi holds a place in the early adopter queue with the Outlander PHEV, but is this the next chapter in Australia’s motoring future?

2019 Mitsubishi Triton review: GLS Premium flagship driven!

This is the GLS Premium, now the flagship in the Triton range, replacing the Exceed. Can the new facelifted model compete with the top-shelf offerings in the Ranger and HiLux lines?

2019 Mitsubishi Triton GLX+ review: Australian launch

The Mitsubishi Triton has had its first facelift in four years, bringing bold styling to its previously understated appearance. While it looks like an all-new model, this is a clever redesign of the Triton introduced in 2015.

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...

Mitsubishi Triton GLS Premium v SsangYong Musso Ultimate comparison

The Mitsubishi Triton is a staple of Australia's ute market, outsold only by the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger in its segment. This recently upgraded model gets a buffer design and a full suite of active safety tech designed to keep it fresh, and a new range-topping GLS Premium variant that we're testing here...

2019 Mitsubishi ASX v Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross comparison

It’s an interesting conundrum Mitsubishi presents to prospective buyers in the small-SUV segment. The Japanese manufacturer offers two candidates in the hotly contested segment, but each with a different approach. Having two players in a burgeoning segment – a segment defying current sales trends by recording growth year-on-year – offers Mitsubishi two slices of the same pie...

2019 Hyundai Ioniq PHEV v Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV comparison

Australians aren’t exactly rushing to buy electrified cars compared to a number of equally mature markets with greater purchase incentives and public charging networks. Sales data shows that electric and PHEV cars sold last year accounted for a tick over 0.1 per cent of vehicle sales (excluding Tesla, which refuses to disclose its sales data, but which is a niche player and wouldn’t change this figure greatly)...

2020 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport leaked

Mitsubishi's new ute-based Pajero Sport SUV has been leaked a full week ahead of its reveal. The images published on Philippines website AutoIndustriya confirm what we already suspected – the Pajero Sport will get a nose inspired by the Triton. The car's headlamps have been simplified, and integrate neatly into its 'Dynamic Shield' grille...

2020 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport update teased

Mitsubishi is readying a facelift for the Pajero Sport, with a full reveal locked in for July 25. The current model launched in 2015, and is one of the strongest-selling ute-based SUVs on the market. It trails the best-selling Isuzu MU-X by just 500 sales year-to-date, and has comfortably outsold the Ford Everest, Toyota Fortuner and Holden Trailblazer...

Mitsubishi plotting Lancer Evolution's return - report

Reports from Europe claim the legendary Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution could return, blending Renault Sport power with an all-wheel drive chassis. According to Autocar, sources in Japan say Mitsubishi plans to "continue a rich history of Lancer Evolution models" with "supercar-beating acceleration together with the choice of either traditional four-door saloon or five-door hatchback body styles"...

Mitsubishi Triton fuel economy buyback sets ‘concerning’ precedent, industry calls for motoring tribunal

The car industry has called for a national motoring tribunal to be established following a landmark case in Victoria which awarded the owner of a two-year-old Mitsubishi Triton a full refund on the $39,500 new-car purchase price due to discrepancies over fuel economy claims...

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...

2017 Mitsubishi Triton GLX (4x4) review

I have now owned my Triton for just over a year, so I believe I can give some sound thoughts on what it is like to live with on a day to day basis. To begin with, lets start with the Triton's biggest seller, the price. I paid about $32,000 for my 2017 GLX (yes, I had some optional extras thrown on, but nothing to blow a price out)...

2012 Mitsubishi Pajero GLS LWB (4x4) review

The purchase of a second-hand 2012 Pajero in 2015 from a dealer was not a good experience. I was promised books and spare keys, but they were not initially there. However the keys arrived after some discussion. The books also arrived, but they were not the books for my car - there was the wrong VIN, which prompted more discussion...

1996 Mitsubishi 3000 GT Review

The year was 2005. I was a high school student finishing Year 12. The day was done and I was heading to the bus stop for the long ride home. As I cross the road, I get caught in the pedestrian island in the middle of a busy main road in southeast Queensland. Watching car after car drive by, something abruptly catches my eye...
