Heritage and the future at the Mitsubishi booth

Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation has just released a teaser for their display cars at the 4th Philippine International Motor Show.

Heading the line up will be the upcoming Mitsubishi Mirage subcompact car, joined by another all new model with the Outlander. The new Mirage comes with a 1.2 liter engine, DVD and GPS navigation for the top spec model, and aggressive pricing.

The Outlander is marking a return, after having its positioning in the Philippine market assumed by both the ASX and the Montero Sport. This 3rd generation model was first shown at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, and shares the same GS platform used by the Lancer.

Also at the show will be the iMiEV electric car along with a special treat for RalliArt fans: the Galant VR-4 driven by Kenjiro Shinozuka; a car and driver combination that garnered him and his co-driver the 1988 APRC title, as well as back to back wins at the Rallye Côte d'Ivoire Bandama from 1991 to 1992.

The four stars of the Mitsubishi booth will be joined by the Strada, Montero Sport, the Lancer EX and Fuso models.

The 4th Philippine International Motor Show will run from August 16 to 19 at the World Trade Center in Pasay.
