  • Common FAQs
  • The Mitsubishi Magna boasts a theoretical top speed of 235 km/h with a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of 8.5 seconds. By comparison, a 2006 3.6-litre V6 Holden Commodore hits that in 7.5 seconds, on its way to 241 km/h.
  • Reliability is the cornerstone of the Mitsubishi Magna and although the range is older than virtually all the rivals in its class, including the Toyota Avalon and Ford Falcon, the once-popular Magna is still worth considering on that basis.
  • For its size, the Mitsubishi Magna AWD has a highly commendable 1,500 kg braked towing capacity. Even so, this pales in comparison with the Ford Falcon that can haul an impressive 2,300 kg under the same conditions.
  • Prices range from $3,499 to $5,499 for a 2005 Mitsubishi Magna, but older models are available for less such as a 2000 model for $2,990 on Gumtree. In comparison, a 2000 model Honda Accord can be found on Gumtree for $2,000.
  • The 3.5-litre engine of the Mitsubishi Magna Sports variant can produce a considerable 163kW maximum power at 5,250rpm. The Commodore V6 delivers 180kW and 330Nm of torque, while the Mazda 6 can produce 140kW and 252Nm respectively.

SIMILAR MODELS TO MITSUBISHI MAGNA

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: MITSUBISHI MAGNA (2000 TO 2005)

The youngest Mitsubishi Magna is now a teenager, so the general rule is to treat Magnas on a case-by-case basis.

That said, there are a few things to look at starting with the service history.

Essentially, the Magna V6 in these later versions needed an oil change and a new oil filter every 10,000km.

Ignoring this was bad practice as old oil soon caused wear in the engine.

The first sign is noisy lifters - a ticking sound when you start the engine - and if it's present, the damage has already started to occur.

A puff of blue smoke on higher-mileage Magnas is usually caused by wear in the valve-stem seals and keeping an eye on the level on the dipstick becomes critical at that point.

The frameless windows were noisy when the car was near new. Time and kilometres won't have improved that.
