The Mitsubishi brand has recorded an increase in sales every year starting from 2012, signaling the end of a slump in sales that resulted in the brand shuttering its Normal, Illinois plant. There are quite a few popular Mitsubishi models that you can consider when looking to buy used or junk cars for sale on auction. To help you choose the best Mitsubishi car for your requirements, let’s look at some of the popular models that have been churned out over the years.
Mitsubishi Evo X
The Mitsubishi Evo X was discontinued in 2016 after its 10th generation. Evo is short for evolution and refers to the evolution of the garden-variety Lancer that went into production in the early 90s into a rally monster. The Mitsubishi Evo X comes fitted with turbocharged/intercooled 2.0-liter inline-four that produces 291 horsepower. It can go from 0-60 in under five seconds.
The Mitsubishi Diamante is a premium sedan that saw the auto manufacturer scooping its second Japanese Car of the Year award in 1990. It first went on the market in the US in 1992 and was ultimately discontinued in 2005. The first generation Mitsubishi Diamante is still quite popular with its BMW-style shark nose and pristine design.
The Mitsubishi Outlander is a 7-seater family SUV that places emphasis on utility, versatility, and comfort. The SUV also boasts advanced safety features such as automatic high beams, lane departure warning, and forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection. It comes fitted with a 2.4-liter MIVEC engine which delivers great fuel-efficiency.
The Mitsubishi Montero first hit the market in 1982, called the Pajero in some markets. Built with a strong emphasis on off-roading as opposed to cruising the highway, the SUV has a superb four-wheel-drive system that can handle even the most inhospitable terrain. Some of its competition included the Suzuki Samurai, Isuzu Trooper, and Jeep CJ-7.
