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...

2002 Mitsubishi Magna Ralliart review

For years the FWD Magna was seen as a sedate, seemingly bland but competent sedan that competed in a market dominated by its RWD Falcon and Commodore competition. In 2000, the Magna was given its TJ facelift, which now included both the Sports and new VR-X model variants. Based on the ever so reliable and snappy G674 V6, the Sports and VR-X had their power bumped up to 163kW from a larger 2...

1983 Mitsubishi Starion review

“What is that stupid-looking thing?!” I asked. The year was 2002. I was a student who needed a reliable car for the long daily commute to university. I had recently received an insurance payout for my previous car (a solid 1982 Toyota Celica) and was trawling the car yards with my dad looking for something a bit more low maintenance and economical...

2009 Mitsubishi Grandis VR-X review

  This car is amazing. I've had it for seven years and it is awesome. It is really comfortable, and the technology is pretty good considering it was made in 2009. It has a Mitsubishi Lancer engine in it and is automatic, which is pretty good but manual is better. A great family car for seven people – it is a seven-seater, but with about five people in the car it is perfect...

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS (4x4) review

A recent Sydney to Brisbane road trip gave me the ultimate opportunity to test every facet of the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander's abilities and credentials. From the hustle and bustle of Sydney's urban grind and stop-start traffic, to the great Pacific Highway up the east coast, and even a cheeky little dabble into some off-road and sports action over the twisty country and rural stretches around Kyogle in rural NSW...

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS (4x4) review

  We bought this car to continue the SUV trend from an X-Trail to get some space for the dog and the remaining child (well, teenager) occupying our home. We have now realised we don't need the size, so it's off to the car yard after three years' ownership. The ride is comfortable and I felt the Outlander had less body roll than others in its class, but it's no sports car...

2017 Mitsubishi Triton GLS (4x4) Sports Edition review

After biting the bullet and buying my first diesel, I can honestly say I love this car. The reason for my choice came down to a couple of key factors. Size was high as I live in the city, so I wanted a dual-cab that could be manoeuvred easily. Cost and value were also big items on the list, as I'm sure they are with any other consumer products...

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS (4x4) review

I updated to the Mitsubishi Outlander XLS diesel from a 2008 Nissan X-Trail diesel auto, a great little performer, and was disappointed that it wasn't available with a higher towing capacity in the newer model. Hence, I looked around at all the midsize SUVs to find a two-tonne, 200kg ball weight towing vehicle...
