Mitsubishi Magna is a car manufactured from 1985 to 2005 by Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL), the Australian division of Mitsubishi Motors. Designed as a replacement for Mitsubishi Sigma, each generation of Magna, based on Japanese platforms, has been upgraded to the Australian market.
The model debuted in 1987. Initially Magna was equipped with in-line four-cylinder engines and bodies sedan and station wagon. Over the years, each new series increased in size, and with the second generation in 1991, the range was supplemented by a luxury version called Mitsubishi Verada with a V6 engine. During this time, Mitsubishi Verada and Mitsubishi Magna became the first Australian cars exported around the world in large quantities, mainly called Mitsubishi Diamante. The third and final generation of the Mitsubishi Magna was launched in the series in 1996, the all-wheel drive (AWD) version was added in 2002. A significant update of the third generation took place in 2003. In 2005, the Mitsubishi Magna was replaced by the Mitsubishi 380 model.
The Magna was developed as a replacement for the rear-wheel-drive model of the Chrysler Sigma. Earlier in the lineup of the Australian branch of Mitsubishi was a large family car in the form of a six-cylinder Chrysler Valiant, who inherited MMAL after the operation of buying Chrysler Australia in 1980. Nevertheless, MMAL decided that the width of the car will be a decisive factor for Australian buyers, who traditionally prefer large cars. As a result, in order to compete more effectively against large rear-wheel drive rivals, namely Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore, former Chrysler engineers who switched to MMAL developed a wider mid-range car typical for the Australian market. This model was based on the fifth generation of Japanese front-wheel drive Mitsubishi Galant (Sigma), released in August 1983. Engineers made changes to the Galant body: expanded by 65 mm and reinforced for Australian road conditions. To emphasize the size and advantage over other mid-range Mitsubishi cars, it was named Magna – derived from the Latin word Magnus, which means “big, important, great”. This approach proved successful for the Australian market, making Magna a strong competitor to Toyota Corona, Holden Camira, Nissan Bluebird, Ford Telstar. The expansion of the platform also affected Honda, Mazda, Nissan, and Toyota, which did the same for their mid-size models in international markets, for example, in the case of the wide-body Toyota Camry (XV10) 1991.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited produced Mitsubishi Verada and Mitsubishi Magna at its Clovelli Park plant in South Australia. Most engines – primarily the original four-cylinder Astron II (model 4G54) and subsequent V6 engines (model 6G72 and 6G74) -were manufactured in Lonsdale, South Australia.
