Back to Mitsubishi


Mitsubishi, the automotive arm of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, may be considered nowadays one of Japan’s smaller automakers in comparison to Toyota or Honda. However, its crossovers and SUVs have boosted the profits of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance since 2016 when Nissan bought 34% of the shares in Mitsubishi. The company is known for building rugged all-terrain vehicles like the Montero as well as smaller crossovers like the Outlander. Among car fans, though, it’s revered for being the brand behind the Lancer Evolution series of sporty sedans that dominated the WRC back in the late ’90s, often doing battle with arch-rival Subaru and its Impreza WRX STI.
