    Stumbled across this on my news feed tonight, interesting to see the relationships all laid out on one page.

    The French are working with Mitsubishi? That's very depressing :Frown:

    They will never make a 4x4 better than old school Pajeros.

    I don't know, I rather like the Delicas myself :Laughing:

    In Geneva both I and @Ichiban were really disappointed with the build quality in their all their latest cars, it was night and day compared to the Mitsubishi of old.

    I don't think so, news to me.

    I didn't think so either on that one, I know they do own Subaru.

    I'm not surprised, I don't think we'll ever see them return to the old days of legendary reliability and ruggedness.

    I think this list is a bit old, Mazda also bought their shares back from Ford, so Ford no longer have controlling stake in them.

    As for Mitsubishi, all they do is share the platform for the Outlander with PSA, the Peugeot 4007 SUV or whatever it is called is basically a rebadged Outlander. The same way Toyota share the Aygo platform with PSA.
