Mighty Mirage leads the Market
Four Mitsubishi Motors models have been identified as the most economical cars to own and operate in their class according to the 2018 Vehicle Running Costs study conducted by Australia’s motoring organisations.
According to data issued by the RACV, Triton GLX (4x2 and 4x4), Pajero Sport GLX, Outlander PHEVLS and Mirage ES all recorded the lowest running costs per week in their respective segments, proving that the Mitsubishi range extends its value-for-money appeal long after a customer leaves the dealership.
Pajero Sport GLX achieved the best-in-class result in the All-Terrain SUV category with running costs at $237 per week on average, whilst the Triton GLX results suggest owners can enjoy less work and more play, running at just $210.99 per week for the 4x2 and $225.95 for the 4x4 drivetrain.
Big savings come in small packages in the way of Mirage ES, offering the lowest average running cost of just $108.78 per week and the Outlander PHEVLS comfortably led the running costs charge in the EVsegment at $259.22 per week.
The annual running costs study assesses the cost of ownership of more than 100 vehicles in all segments over the first five years including list price, on road costs, depreciation, fuel and servicing. Costs may vary from state-to-state.
