But that wasn’t always the case. There is much more to Mitsubishi than Mitsubishi Motors by which us car enthusiasts know the Japanese giant. They have produced aircrafts, ships, railroad cars, etc. They even dabble (successfully) in chemicals, optics and nuclear energy among other things. As of June, 2016, however, Mitsubishi Group only holds a loose grip over Mitsubishi Motors’ fortunes. Mitsubishi Motors are now part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Until we all get to see what world’s fourth largest carmaker Renault-Nissan plans on doing with the Mitsubishi (apart from closing their O’Brien Mitsubishi of Normal, Illinois plant), let’s look back at 10 of their best cars ever made.

3000GT or simply GTO was arguably the best of all Mitsubishi models ever produced. Sports car is still an expensive second hand affair, even 15 years after its discontinuation. 3000GT VR-4 was the ultimate version of what’s one of the best sports car that had come from across the Pacific. Twin-turbo V6 pushing 296 or 320 horsepower depending on generation was accompanied by all-wheel drive and an active rear spoiler. It was truly a magnificent piece of engineering and design, and will remain remembered for decades to come. So, next time you decide to go on with Mitsubishi dissing, do keep in mind what they were once capable of.

Mitsubishi isn’t a car manufacturer that’s atop everyone’s lips these days, but they had their fair share of success over the years. They aren’t really our first choice when it comes to SUVs, passenger, or sports cars alike, but they’ve built more than a few good ones in every single one of these segments. Furthermore, we mustn’t forget the impact Mitsubishi’s had in the World Rally Championship over the years. At the same time, their impact in their home market, in Japan is also huge. Compact minivans, utes, affordable family cars and similarly priced sports cars have been the core of their business strategy for decades now.

Mitsubishi Starion wasn’t as popular as the cars it used to compete against. Let’s be fair, though. Very few cars had had the chance against the likes of Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7 and Nissan Fairladys. Still, Starion performed admirably. Powered mostly by 2.6L turbo four, Starion delivered between 150 and 197 horsepower. Before all global markets received the larger engine with plenty of torque at tap back in ’87 (234 lb-ft), overseas models were blessed with the 2.0L turbo four unit that had featured a high redline and felt more rewarding overall. In addition, Mitsubishi Starion was the first Japanese production car with computer controlled fuel injection and turbocharging.

Mitsubishi doesn’t have a lot of cards left to play in the U.S. market, and its most popular model, the Outlander Sport, has been underwhelming in our testing. But Mitsubishi is doing everything it can to keep its top seller selling, with regular refreshes since the Outlander Sport first appeared as a 2011 model. The first update came on the 2013 model. Then, three years later, the 2016 Outlander Sport adopted Mitsu’s Dynamic Shield front fascia. Now, for 2018, the Outlander Sport has been treated to a third redo, and we’ll get our first look at it during the New York auto show.

Mitsubishi won its second Japanese Car of the Year award in 1990 with the Diamante, a premium sedan designed to take on the Acura Legend. Reaching U.S. shores in 1992, it held its own at a time when the Japanese premium car market was still in its infancy. While later generations eventually lost their way (it was discontinued in 2005), the first generation car, with its BMW-style shark nose and uncluttered design looks just as good today as it did 25 years ago.


When Mitsubishi made its U.S. debut under its own name in 1982, the Starion was one of its first models. Designed to take on heavyweights like the Nissan Z-cars, Mazda RX-7, and Toyota Supra, the rear-wheel drive grand tourer was also sold as the Conquest by Dodge, Plymouth and Chrysler. By 1986, it received an aggressive wide-body kit, an intercooler, and in hot ESR trim (or TSi if it was Chrysler-badged) it could make up to 188 horsepower and 234 pounds-feet of torque, pretty impressive for a Japanese sports car of its day.

Eclipse was introduced as a replacement for the aforementioned Starion, and it lasted for more than couple of decades. Sports compact came in many forms over the span of its lifetime but most memorable was the GSX Turbo. It came with standard all-wheel drive and 195-horsepower 2.0L turbo four engine. You could have had it with an automatic, but the manual was the way to go. Second generation would get the 210-horsepower turbo four, and third would get the 210-horsepower V6 which would carry over into the last gen as well. All in all, the Eclipse deserves the spot among some of the best Mitsubishi models.
