Mitsubishi Space Wagon, or as it’s better known as Mitsubishi Chariot, is a five-door wagon, SUV and minivan produced and sold by Japanese Company from 1983 to 2003.
The first generation of this series appeared in 1983 and lasted until 1991. The engine options of the Mitsubishi Space Wagon included the 1.6 liter 4G32 SOHC four power plants engine, the 2.0 liter 4G63 petrol versions and the 1.8 liter 4D65T turbo diesel versions. All the above engine options were supplemented with a three-speed automatic and a five-speed manual transmission. With all these options and some additional comfort and safety features Mitsubishi Space Wagon became the most selling car in its segment and beat the Mitsubishi Galant’s success.
The second generation appeared in 1991 and lasted until 1997. This generation was widened and enlarged in every dimension possible; it had a bigger wheelbase, height length and width. The thing that didn’t change was the engine displacement and exterior dimensions. The old turbo diesel engine was replaced with a newer version of 1,997 cc 4D68T one, with the 2,350 cc 4G64 engine added to the series in 1993. New engines were supplemented with the five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. The four-speed automatic transmission with electronically controlled option was also available. The second generation of Mitsubishi Space series had the old seating arrangement that consisted of three rows with the adjustable middle one.
The third and the last generation of these cars appeared in 1997 and existed until 2003. Once again, it was longer, wider and heavier but also more powerful and comfortable than all the previous cars have been before. The engine options included the 2.4 liter 4G64 I4 and the 3.0 liter 6G72 V6, the most powerful ones a car this size and weight could have at that time. And with the improved safety system and additional comfort features installed Mitsubishi Space Wagon became a great vehicle for an everyday family use that could get all of your family members from one place to another safe and fast.
