Mitsubishi is the sixth largest automobile manufacturer in Japan and forms part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, one of the world’s leading automotive groups.
Mitsubishi is probably best known for its Pajero SUV, which has cemented its place as an extremely capable and rugged off-roader. In fact, the Pajero has won the epic Dakar Rally 12 separate times - a Dakar record! Vintage Pajeros are extremely collectible, and the modern iteration is more comfortable and well-equipped than ever.
Mitsubishi has also enjoyed relative success with the Triton bakkie - a successor to the hardy Colt - as well as the Fortuner-rivalling Pajero Sport and the smaller Outlander.
The recently-launched Eclipse Cross pays homage to the original Eclipse, a ‘90s cult classic, while several of the brand’s hatchbacks and sedans like the Lancer and Mirage can still be found on the pre-owned car market.
The brand has legendary reliability, and offers alternative styling to familiar favourites like Toyota and Ford!
