Re: MitsuBiShi DIaMaNtE (Prostrho)

The Diamante aka Magna/Verada range is a fine enough car, but struggling for sales here and Mitsubishi's future is uncertain

It is though, comfortable, well-appointed and has a ncie drivetrain. But the Falcon has become the benchmark in that segment in all areas except styling (in the public's eyes of course
)

Just like the chrome-frame honeycomb grille on Ford's Fairmonts, combines luxury with sportiness http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: MitsuBiShi DIaMaNtE (audiness)

In the JDM, the Diamante struggles as it's up against similarly sized competition from Nissan and Toyota. Though in 2WD (albeit FWD) form it undercuts its competitors as most JDM Mitsubishis generally do, in 4WD form (which is likely better for the power of the GDI engines, and Mitsubishi 4WD systems are great) it's priced right against them, i.e. 3.0-litre sedans like the Cedric and Crown. No doubt it has many merits, but also doesn't exactly stand out other than offering good comfort, drivetrain and value.

Mitsubishi, however, like Mazda always offered full-size top-line offerings in the past which were competitive and different. The original ('64-'86) Debonair was one of the most prestigious sedans in Japan.

True. However, Mazda still offered something truly different when it had the rotary option in the 929...
Back in the 70s, the Japanese followed their European and Australian counterparts in taking lavishness to new heights
