Mitsubishi FTO/Galant/Legnum/Delica – 2018 Market review

The number of Legnum wagons popping up in school drop-off zones suggests that these punchy imports are finding buyers outside of the ‘enthusiast’ market.

Some will cost more than $12,000 but good examples exist in the $8000-10,000 bracket.

Similar interest is being driven by the cute and practical FTO. These often appeal to younger folk with under $5000 to spend on something with more verve than a Polo or Hyundai.

If you need to move a bunch of people in decent comfort while keeping costs down.

$8000 will buy an older 2.8-litre Delica, but spend $15-20,000 if you can on the later 2.4-litre petrol model.

FTO 1994-99 $4655 [27] 

Galant VR4 1989-93 $10,165 [5]

Galant VR4 1996-01 $7495 [5] 

Legnum VR4 1996-01 $7080 [23]

Delica 1996-04 $9310 [30]
