The Mitsubishi Grandis was first introduced in 2003 and was known as the Mitsubishi Space Wagon. This multi-purpose van (MPV) doesn’t quite look like typical van at all. Instead of sliding doors, it has 4 swinging doors plus one at the back to access the cargo compartment. It also doesn’t have a long body you would normally see in a large MPV. This seven-seater van is equipped with 2.4 L, 16-valve MIVEC engine.
Some nice features of the Grandis: front and rear sensors, MIVEC engine, plus its overall look and shape is just awesome.
Price of Mitsubishi Grandis = 1,358,000 (automatic transmission)
Compare this van with: Kia Carnival, Toyota Previa

Video Walkthrough of the Mitsubishi Montero Sport
This one of those sports utility vehicles in the Philippines that doesn’t even need an introduction. Everybody knows what a Pajero is and which company manufactures this vehicle. As a matter of fact, it has tasted big time sales success in the Philippine market since the time it was first introduced here in 1989. The current version of the Pajero still has the same familiar look of the very first Pajero released in the Philippines with a few modifications here and there to keep pace with the modern car designs. This 5-door, 7-seater SUV has the similar interiors you would expect from the classic Pajero.

Video Review of Mitsubishi Pajero (in Australia):
First introduced in the Philippines in 2006, the Mitsubishi Strada (also known as Mitsubishi Triton in other markets) has already that familiar sound to everyone who owns a pickup truck.

The current incarnation of Mitsubishi Strada makes you want to drive it around the city instead of just using it as a cargo vehicle.
