When approaching Japanese manufacturers, most buyers would opt for mainstream brands like Toyota, Nissan, Mazda or Honda. This leaves Mitsubishi as somewhat of a left-field choice.
In overseas markets Mitsubishi offers the Colt supermini, however, this is not sold locally. With many other preowned Mitsubishi models available, you’ll definitely be able to find one that suits you. We do receive the Lancer sedan, designed to compete with the likes of the Toyota Corolla, Volkswagen Jetta and Mazda 3 sedan.
Motoring enthusiasts will know about the constant competition between Mistubishi and Subraru's Lancer and Impreza models - and that it is not limited to the beaten rally track. It also rears its head in the producution car segment, where there's a noticeable rivalry here, between the high-performance STI and Evolution versions of either models. The Evolution model is characterised by its aggressive bodykit, prominent rear spoiler and four-wheel-drive layout, a popular choice for Mitsubishi South Africa customers.
Bring Back the Bakkie
Since we're a market particularly fond of bakkies and Sports Utility Vehicles, products like the Pajero and Triton have fared rather well. The Triton boasts looks that are different to what most are used to in the bakkie segment: it features softer, more delicate traits rather than an aggressive, square-jawed appearance. The Triton is available as a double cab, as well as in Club Cab guise.
Mitsubishi recently released the ASX - Active Smart Crossover, which seems to be stacked-up against products like the Nissa Qashqai, Kia Sportage, Hyundai ix35 and Volkswagen Tiguan. The ASX's countenance has the same kind of striking headlamp and grille shape, as seen on the latest generation Lancer and Pajero. With all choices available from Mitsubishi South Africa, there’s a preowned Mitsubishi for everyone.
