Mitsubishi Delica Space Gear is a large-sized station wagon with three rows of seats in the cabin, which combines the practicality of a passenger minivan and the powerful driving performance of a SUV class car (wagon "for outdoor activities"). The most popular is a machine equipped with a super select 4WD all-wheel drive system. Although it should be noted that a mono-drive version of the machine with rear-wheel drive is also available. It is characterized by increased ground clearance. Ahead carries a protective arc, like a real SUV, and is also equipped with side steps. It can be made in different bodies, which is an undoubted advantage. In particular, the body may be long or shortened. The body can carry a roof of a conventional design or it can be a ventilated type. In addition, an option is provided with a high roof, a double roof hatch and a "transparent" roof. In terms of equipment, doors are also a variety: the body has 2 hinged doors, plus a universal hinged and sliding door from the front passenger side, plus a rear door to the luggage compartment.
For a model with three rows of seats, the main options are 7 or 8 seats. But there is another option with an elongated body (more than 5 meters), where an additional, 4th row of seats can be installed, which will make it possible to accommodate ten people in the cabin. The engine is a V-shaped 6-cylinder with a displacement of 3 liters. In addition, there is a variant with a 2.4-liter engine, which has only 4 cylinders, or a 2.8-liter turbo diesel. It should be noted that at the first stage there was another modification with a 2.5-liter turbo diesel engine. The model was first born in 1994, and then repeatedly passed a partial replacement of its lineup.
The release of the fourth generation Mitsubishi Delica started in 1994. In 1999, for the first time in the lineup, a Mitsubishi Delika truck was introduced. The car is also known as Delica Cargo. The new generation was borrowed from Mazda and its Bongo freight model. Mitsubishi designers did not make any significant changes. Initially, two types of engines were installed on the Mitsubishi Delica truck: gasoline 1. 8 (90 horsepower) and diesel 2.2 (79 hp). In 2003, instead of the 2.2 engine, a more powerful turbocharged 2.0 unit (86 horsepower) was started to be installed on the car, and the gasoline engine was replaced by the 1.8 engine (95 hp).
Gasoline engines complied with the Euro-III environmental standard and consumed 9.6 liters of fuel in the urban cycle. A 2.2 diesel engine (79 hp) consumed 7.4 liters of fuel in the city. The fuel tank has a capacity of 58 liters.
A Mitsubishi Delika truck was produced with a four-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual. The car's drive could be rear or full (with a lowering row). Car suspension - a combination of a lever suspension and a beam. On the Mitsubishi Delica truck, ventilated disc brakes were installed at the front, and drum ones at the rear.
The release of the Delica truck continued until 2011, when it was decided to abandon this type of bodywork and focus exclusively on the production of minivans. The Mitsubishi Delica truck was produced in a short and long base. The short base is 4335 mm long, the width of the machine is 1690 mm, and the height is 1880 mm. The long version of Delica has the following dimensions: length - 4605 mm, width and height of the model are identical to the previous one. The wheelbase of both trucks is 2220 mm. The ground clearance of the car, depending on the modification, ranged from 140 to 155 mm.
One row of seats was installed in the car cabin, which could fit three people. For transportation of goods, an onboard platform was installed at the rear. Modifications such as a dump truck or a refrigerator with a different number of doors and the height of the refrigerator were produced. The maximum load capacity of the cargo version of Mitsubishi Delika is 1000 kg. A car lift could be installed on the car.
A standard set of options available on the truck includes a driver's airbag, power windows, power steering, air conditioning and a radio with speakers. An optional front passenger airbag could be installed. The Mitsubishi Delica truck was available in DX and GL trim levels.
