About Mitsubishi

Although Mitsubishi has been established as a company since 1870, it actually wasn't until 1917 that the brand began making automobiles. Prior to that, Mitsubishi was mostly known for its involvement in the shipping, coal mining, and military aircraft manufacturing. Today, Mitsubishi Motors offers a wide range of cars, hatchbacks, crossovers, SUVs, and electric vehicles.

One of the better known Mitsubishi vehicles is the Mirage, a compact hatchback that is currently in its sixth generation of production (2012-present). The 2018 Mirage offers seating for five passengers and comes standard with a 1.2L three-cylinder engine at 78 hp, in addition to base equipment such as a rear spoiler, seven-inch touchscreen interface, and rearview camera. Fuel economy is a major draw for the Mirage; its 2018 base trim with 1.2L engine and automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 39 mpg combined.1

The Outlander crossover SUV is another popular Mitsubishi model, especially for larger families. This crossover features standard three-row seating for up to seven passengers, as well as optional all-wheel drive. On the 2017 model, a 2.4L four-cylinder engine is standard, as is automatic dual-zone climate control, a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, and rear privacy glass.

The innovative i-MiEV is Mitsubishi's fully electric car, a four-door hatchback that can seat up to four people. Standard equipment on the 2017 i-MiEV includes a quick-charging port, full power accessories, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. It is powered by a 49-kW electric motor and 16 kWh lithium-ion battery for 66 hp that gets an EPA-estimated 112 MPGe combined.2
