Mitsubishi's renaissance continues with the launch in Japan of the all-new Delica D-5 MPV
1 February 2007

Mitsubishi's renaissance continues with the launch this week in Japan of this all-new Delica D-5 minivan.

The Delica is a big seven-seat people-carrier that shares its platform, 2.4-litre four-cylinder twin cam engine and continuously variable transmission with the new Outlander. Its predecessor has gathered quite a following in the UK as a grey import, though there are no plans to bring the new D-5 to Britain.

There's a big market in Japan for boxy, affordable, utilitarian minivans, and the funky-looking D-5 (for fifth generation) with its power sliding rear doors and cavernous interior looks to fit that bill to a tee.

As with its predecessor, the latest Delica offers selectable four-wheel-drive, high ground clearance, but only moderate off-road ability. Expect to start seeing the D-5 on UK roads in 2010 – the notoriously tough Japanese MoT test means many vehicles over three years old end up being exported.
