When there was a mis-named car, this really is it; when it comes to charisma it’s in the same league being an empty cornflakes packet.
However the machine provides unexciting, functional and reliable transport within the fiercely-fought mid-sized sedan sector of the market.
It seats four in reasonable comfort, and it is available with a good range of petrol or perhaps a single diesel engines. Its savior is that it’s very good value, both to purchase and run – merely a relatively high insurance risk (the price of spares being responsible) jars from the otherwise efficient, but dull, package.
Mitsubishi never seemed capable of getting the saloon car sector of the range right; perhaps total withdrawal from that sector, focusing on small cars and SUVs instead, may help ease the corporation’s financial woes?
