Anyone who doesn't know, Mitsubishi Australia have worked on the new magna replacement which is using the US Galant platform but with some changes to meet Australian standards such as engine redevelopment and interior/exterior changes. I honestly dunno how I feel about it. Its rather different and not what I invisioned what the Magna should look like. Its supposed to be trying to take the crown from Commodore and Falcon as being large family cars but sadly I doubt that will happen. Its still FWD for crying tout load!

Seriously that magna looks like a typical american type design.
Sure the current magna design sucked but this new one isn't even neutral like a camry it looks like an american car imported here(AUS) no way in hell is that going to take over from a australian designed car without RWD or an australian name.
With the current trend's on car sales it's most likely not going to sell as well as they hope.
And with the whole deal in South Aus. Mitsubishi aren't going to do so well in the future.

Mind posting a picture for us? I wasn't able to find one. Hopefully the new design means it won't be over-engineered. Do you know how many f*cking bolts they put into those things? About three times more than any other car would. Anyway, I'm quite a fan of the Magna series. Quite reliable, except when it comes to the automatic-transmission. I might have to see into getting one when it's out, as I like my old Magna but would love a new one. Though I don't know I'd get a first model, bit risky.

If Mitsubishi have spent so much time on the PS41, they could have atleast kept the US Platform and redesigned the whole look of the car. Much like Holden did with the Commodore, but it's a European platform.
I'm guessing this is it:
It doesn't look too bad, but last time I checked, it's styling is pretty much the same to the US Galant.

Funny, it reminds me of a mix between an MG and a Volvo. dt8
