Mitsubishi FTO Overview
The Mitsubishi FTO is classed as a sports coupe and was produced by the Japanese automobile company Mitsubishi Motors. This car is a small 2-door front wheel drive car which was originally intended for the Japanese market only. This car was to become popular in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand and due to this popularity; it was available for export into these countries. This car looks good and due to the small amount of imports, they are uncommon compared with some of the competitors in this class. These cars are good fun to drive, look good and perform pretty well. They have a surprisingly large boot space, but the space in the rear of the cabin is limited as you would expect. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Mitsubishi FTO?
