Mitsubishi FTO/Starion/Galant/Scorpion/Sigma

Mixing locals and low volume imports in this category indicates the variety of older Mitsubishis available at under $10,000, The one model in here to exceed that price cap is the Starion and even after 35 years it hasn’t as yet clawed back its new-car cost.

Of the rest, early VR4 Galants offer an interesting experience for your $10K and the FTO coupe is something different for enthusiastic youngsters with $5000 for a first car.

The Sigma, once Australia’s best-selling four-cylinder car, has fallen on hard times, as has its two-door Scorpion sibling. A well-preserved Sigma 2.0-litre might cost $5000 however most are faded, priced at or under $1500 and just one roadworthy failure from the scrap yard.
