Mitsubishi’s Grandis people-mover has had a luxury make-over as part of a model upgrade, and now offers even better value for money in its new guise.

Externally Grandis has not changed, but the interior of the ’06 model year Grandis gets a new sporty look. The dark blue/light grey interior trim has been replaced with a black/grey interior with dark grey cloth seat trim. The gear-shift gets a silver mesh-look highlight to surround the sporty in-dash lever.

Powered by a Euro 3 compliant 2.4 litre 16-valve four-cylinder MIVEC engine developing 120kW at 6,000 rpm and 216Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm, the Grandis puts its power to the ground through a four-speed INVECS II ‘Smart Logic’ automatic transmission with ‘Sports Mode’ sequential shifting operation.

- Roof rails

Three new colours have been added to the Grandis colour palette to freshen the colour range, and it now is:

- White Solid
- Cool Silver Metallic
- Fraser Beige Metallic (new)
- Red Metallic (new)
- Purple Metallic
- Effect Grey Mica (new)

The stylish Grandis comes with a comprehensive list of standard features that are consistent with a family wagon. These include power steering, power windows, power exterior mirrors, cruise control, dual climate control automatic air conditioning, front, side and curtain airbags, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), copious storage areas, 16” alloy wheels, and an extremely flexible three-row seating arrangment.

The price for Grandis is $39,990 for the entry model, and $45,250 when the additional luxury features are optioned. The new Grandis range is now available from Mitsubishi dealers.
