Mitsubishi is Japan’s sixth largest car manufacturer which produces a diverse selection of vehicles from the tiny Colt to the legendary Evo rally car. The company’s success in the World Rally Championship has given
Mitsubishi a small but devoted following on the used car market.
Although the company can trace its roots back to 1917, Mitsubishi first entered the UK market in 1974 under the guise of the Colt Car Company Limited.
The Mitsubishi Colt first entered the UK market in 1974 and has been produced in no fewer than eight generations since. The 2002 model year Colt was popular on the UK market, and its low price, safety, comfort and practicality make it a solid second-hand choice.
The Mitsubishi ASX is the spiritual successor to the old Mitsubishi Space Runner of the 1990s. Released in 2010, the ASX is a compact crossover, and is a good choice on the second-hand car market thanks to its good looks, practicality, generous levels of standard equipment and its excellent diesel engines.
The Mitsubishi Outlander was launched in 2004, with major revisions taking place in 2007 and 2012. The Outlander is a crossover SUV, and offers a range of good engines, lots of interior space and rugged off-road looks, making it a popular used car choice.
The Mitsubishi Evolution is the firm’s legendary rally car. Introduced in 1992, the Lancer Evolution, to give it its full title, has been produced in ten generations since. The Evo X was launched in 2007 and won many fans thanks to its blistering performance, superb handling and reasonable price.
The Shogun is possibly Mitsubishi’s most recognisable car. Launched back in 1982, with new models arriving in 1991, 1999 and 2006, the Shogun is Mitsubishi’s large 4×4 SUV. Renowned for its reliability, off-road ability and sturdiness, the Shogun is an excellent off-roader, and a good choice for those looking for a used off-road SUV.
Other popular used Mitsubishis include the i-MiEV electric car, the Lancer saloon, the Carisma, the Sigma executive car, and the Space Wagon and Space Star MPVs.
