2020 Mitsubishi Triton GLX+ Review

By |2020-02-29T10:24:25+10:00January 27th, 2020|4 Cylinder, 4WD, Car Reviews by Brand, Car Type Search, Diesel, Drive Wheels, Engine Type Search, LCV Reviews, Light Trucks, Mitsubishi Reviews, pickup trucks, Rear Wheel Drive, Turbo, Video Reviews, Videos|0 Comments

Like most LCV (pick-ups), the range is extensive. Choices start with a low-rent single-cab chassis for $22,490. This base model has the bare bones for tradies who are watching the pennies, don’t need much power, and don’t want to pay for 4WD systems they will never use. The 2-seater, 2.4 petrol, has 94kw/ 194Nm, and [...]

2018 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLX Review

By |2019-07-11T11:03:21+10:00July 16th, 2018|4WD, AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Mitsubishi Reviews, SUV Large|0 Comments

The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is the next incarnation of the Pajero, which is still on the market mind you. Slightly smaller and with a smaller engine it’s still built for off-roading and carrying all your stuff. On the road was the base model GLX built on the Mitsubishi Triton platform with a more modern presence as it tries to [...]

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Exceed Review

By |2019-06-30T16:19:04+10:00July 10th, 2018|Car Reviews by Brand, Gay cars fit for a queen?, Mitsubishi Reviews|0 Comments

Its name might be long but the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Exceed is a compact SUV. Following on from my last review of the Toyota C-HR (and not looking too dissimilar) the Eclipse Cross is another look at the ever more popular small crossover SUV. In my hands were the keys to the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Exceed in the AWD version [...]

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Exceed Review

By |2019-06-29T21:07:45+10:00June 26th, 2018|AAA, Car Reviews by Brand, Mitsubishi Reviews, SUV Medium|0 Comments

Mitsubishi offers three versions of the small Eclipse Cross SUV, two with front wheel drive and one with all wheel drive. A CVT transmission is standard across all three  with 'steps' like a conventional auto’s gears. Eclipse Cross is a new model featuring a swag of advanced driver assist technology as standard but I can’t figure out why Mitsubishi [...]

An Urban Safari in Mitsubishi’s Pajero Sport

  Yes yes yes oh YES: Value, off-road performance, space, features Oh dear me no: rear end only a mother could love, slightly awkward entry to driver’s seat The march ever onward to a road fleet consisting almost entirely of SUVs of all sizes and shapes continues. We drove the Sport on its Australian debut outing. Read about it here. [...]

Mitsubishi’s new Pajero Sport: Capable, smooth and packed with stuff

By |2017-03-10T14:27:06+10:00December 6th, 2015|4WD, Diesel, Mitsubishi Reviews, SUV|1 Comment

Mitsubishi was so confident its new 5 star rated SUV would kill anything thrown at it, they confidently plotted a course through sand, dirt, rock and gravel that most of us would have a hard time walking on. Firstly: Pajero Sport has nothing to do with Pajero, but rather replaces the aging Challenger in fairly spectacular style. The front end [...]

Mitsubishi ASX: Cute, not too precious.

Yes yes yes, oh YES: space, comfort, fairly well equipped. Oh dear me no: Noisy tyres, ride too firm We drove both the LS FWD 2.0L petrol with CVT and the 6 speed auto XLS AWD 2.2L turbo diesel and one thing is clear, the recipe works. The GS platform is shared with many other models over several different brands [...]

Mitsubishi’s Triton is a real 4X4 SUV in every way

By |2017-03-10T14:29:23+10:00October 27th, 2015|Diesel, Mitsubishi Reviews, SUV|0 Comments

Many people forget tradie’s utes are as much an SUV as they are work horses. With 6 of the top ten car makers being Japanese, it is no surprise Australian’s scoops up their SUVs like kids in a lollie shop. Mitsubishi’s best seller is the Triton twin cab. It has 4 seats, 5 if you’re all very good friends, and [...]
