This Car Review Is About: Mitsubishi’s ASX with a nameplate that in Mitsubishi’s history has referred to a sporting oriented vehicle. GSR was found on their hi-po Lancers and they were a little less mental than the Evo class cars. However, in ASX trim, the sporting intention has been relegated to a lairy colour on […]Read More 2020 Mitsubishi ASX GSR: Car Review
Once upon a time there was the Mitsubishi Triton. Then came the rise of the SUV. Enter, stage left, the Mitsubishi Challenger, a family wagon based on the Triton. Time passes, and now the Challenger is called the Pajero Sport. It’s still based on the Triton, and in GLX form it’s a basic yet comfortable […]Read More 2019 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLX
The Lancer nameplate has been around, under both Chrysler’s and Mitsubishi’s wardship, for over forty years; the current model was released in Australia in late 2007 and judging by Mitsubishi’s cycle for the car, it’s looking like an update isn’t (hopefully) far off. A Wheel Thing goes one on one with the (current) top of […]Read More 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer XLS sedan review.

Let’s have a look at the 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed. Powersource. Pajero is now exclusively diesel. There’s a good reason for […]Read More 2015 Mitsubishi Pajero Exceed review.
Mitsubishi’s tidy little ASX has been around for a while and was given a new and bigger diesel heart earlier this year.

The Driven Heart It’s a 2.2L diesel, only available with the […]Read More Diesel do it: Mitsubishi ASX Aspire.
It’s been not uncommon for car makers to utilise other companies products in order to help penetrate a market or save on development/manufacturing costs. Peugeot and, in A Wheel Thing’s review car’s case, the Citroen C4 Aircross, use the Mitsubishi ASX. The car is wrapped around the 2.0L petrol engine and CVT gearbox, with flappy […]Read More Crossed Over: Citroen C4 Aircross
Mitsubishi have had competitors in the 4WD and SUV market for quite some time, with the venerable Pajero nameplate being at the forefront. Of late, the smaller SUV market has exploded, with the ASX well placed to compete. Based on the Lancer platform, itself a name that has served Mitsubishi well for close to forty […]Read More Aspire-ations not quite met with the ASX
Week one of A Wheel Thing’s Japanese Odyssey has wrapped with the Nissan Dualis safely back home. It’s been pitched against a strong competitor in the same bracket and, although not quite apples for apples, it’s been Granny Smith against Red Delicious, as timing didn’t allow the direct comparison against the Mitsubishi ASX AWD Elite.
