The Mitsubishi 380 is a mid-size Japanese family car in the Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited line. Manufactured from 2005 to 2008 in Australia. The four-door sedan is based on 9th generation Mitsubishi Galant. The car was manufactured in three series: from 2005 to 2006. DB, from 2006 to 2007 DB Series II and from 2007 to 2008 DB Series III. Sales of the model for the Australian domestic market peaked in 2005-2007.
The exterior of the model is very similar to the analogue that was used as a base. The car is designed exclusively for urban use, as well as for movement on flat country roads. The smooth lines of the body emphasize the modernity of the model, and also add comfort to the car. A small ground clearance will not allow you to move even on a small off-road. Otherwise, it can result in costly repairs.
In the cabin, high-quality finishing material was used, which remains in its original form for a long time and does not lose its shape, but only in case of careful operation by the driver. High-quality plastic was chosen for the dashboard, which does not start to creak and requires additional soundproofing work.
A 3.8-liter power unit was installed under the hood, its power is 258 horsepower. It is paired with a manual or automatic transmission. The drive was exclusively front. The all-wheel drive version of the model was not originally developed by the manufacturers, since the car was created exclusively for urban use.
The car has a fairly rich equipment. Manufacturers had no doubt that all the additional options were added to ensure that the operation was pleasant and comfortable. This list includes: ABS, climate control, cruise control, heated seats, power mirrors, rain and temperature sensor, power windows, airbags, immobilizer collision avoidance system and so on.
Unfortunately, the demand for the car did not live up to the manufacturer’s expectations.
