Mitsubishi in South Africa is known for its tough bakkies and comprehensive range of SUVs. Pity there is nothing for the more budget-conscious Mitsubishi fans. Wait! Until three-four years ago there was the Mirage, an easy on the pocket, sub-compact that hit the sweet spot for students and empty-nesters alike. So now, soon on our shores, the new, updated Mitsubishi Mirage.
Mitsubishi is expanding its South African range by adding the new Xpander Cross. The launch date is yet to be confirmed, but it sounds soon.
Considering how much the crossover sector has grown, Mitsubishi has focused solely on crossovers in recent years while eliminating sedans for a better market share. This means their high-performance variants have all but disappeared from the line-up but the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution might make a welcome return.
Fresh from showing off at the Bangkok Motor Show, the Mitsubishi Triton Absolute Concept bakkie could go into production in the near future. It certainly looks the part of a more robust, modified and performance-heavy off-roader fully stocked with everything you need.
Our spies at Mitsubishi tell us changes are coming. Interested?

But now, after the official launch, it’s time to reveal what everyone’s been waiting for.
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and Nissan Motor Co. continue to expand on their powerful collaboration with a new joint venture, NMKV, producing the next-generation of Kei cars. Production is currently underway at Mitsubishi’s Mizushima Plant in Kurashiki, Japan, and includes the all-new Mitsubishi eK wagon, Mitsubishi eK X, Nissan Dayz, and Nissan Dayz Highway Star.
