2003 Magna???What can we expect?
I heard a long while ago that Mitsubishi was going to start producing 4 cylinder Magnas again, but with the Nimbus' 2.4 litre engine in the TJ series, yet I havent heard any of this since then. It would be e a good idea considering the V6's thirst. Perhaps with the facelift due mid year, it will bring the 4cylinder model also, maybe even with AWD, and hopefully the Ralliart and VR-X will also have it.
Wheels said that a 200kW turbo AWD Magna is on the way, but this my become the Ralliart Magna if Mitsubishi decides to make the 180kW engine standard to combat Ford ( a smart desicion).
AWD would have to become standard on the wagons, rto deal with the cross over vehicles ont eh way from Ford and Holden, but perhaps they would need to adopt IRS first ( the wagons dont have it).
These are my prediction(s). If any one alse has any information regarding the new Magna, please post it.
What else should the Magna adopt if if Mitsubishi ws ts it to be a player in the large car sector?
Broken diffs, burnt out clutches, rusted shells. Yep, were in Kingswood Country.
