The second generation eK Wagon was released in September 2006. In fact, retaining the concept of its predecessor, which gained popularity, the new model made a leap forward in terms of comfort. This is a sliding door with an electric drive from the rear left passenger side (modifications MS and GS), first adopted in a car of this class. A feature of the exterior design, which received the “Semi tall package”, is the body height corresponding to the parameters of multi-level parking, and huge windows that give the driver a 360-degree view. The engine of the eK Wagon is an in-line 3-cylinder with a capacity of 50 "forces".
The dashboard of the Mitsubishi eK Wagon is not sophisticated. All controls are concentrated on the center console. Standard equipment “M” includes air conditioning, power windows and central locking, CD player and radio. The complete set with a full range of options will offer alloy wheels 14 inches, rear spoiler and rear wiper, xenon light, etc. e. A special offer for young mothers was the Marble Edition. The car is equipped with a sliding door with an electric drive, special curtains that will be useful to nursing mothers and protect them from prying eyes, a special lock for installing a child seat, a mirror for observing a child, etc. Bloom edition features water-repellent glass with improved UV and thermal protection, remote-controlled hydrophilic mirrors and transparent direction indicators, in addition to the available body colors, the exclusive Sakura Pink Metallic was offered. Compared to its predecessor, no significant progress has occurred in the mechanical part of the Mitsubishi eK Wagon. The machine has a 3-cylinder 12-valve SOHC engine. It is aggregated at choice with a 5-step “mechanics”, a 3- or 4-step “automatic”, the selector of which is located on the dashboard. The designation of the power unit has not changed - 3G83. With a working volume of 657 “cubes”, it gives a maximum power of 50 horsepower (6500 rpm) and a maximum torque of 62 Nm (4000 rpm). The car was produced in front-wheel or all-wheel drive (4WD FULLTIME) version. The gasoline consumption at the single-drive is 4.7-5.2 liters per 100 kilometers, and the four-wheel drive modification consumes 5.1-5.7 liters per 100 kilometers. The size of the fuel tank also has not changed and meets the needs of this car - 30 liters.
In the second generation, the Mitsubishi eK Wagon adopted from its predecessor not only the engine and transmission, but also the entire chassis. As a result, such parameters as the size of the wheelbase (2340 mm), track gauge (1300 mm) and the turning radius (it is very modest 4.4 meters) have not changed at all. Front independent suspension with MacPherson struts, and rear dependent on trailing arms. Steering - rack type with an amplifier. Traditional design brake system with disc mechanisms on the front axle and drum mechanisms on the rear. The dimensions of the body are the same as its predecessor: 3395 x 1475 x 1550 mm (L x W x H). The cabin has slightly increased in size: its height is 1290 mm (+10 mm), width 1275 (+55 mm), and length 1895 mm (+65 mm). The left rear door in some models is a sliding type. Its guide does not protrude outside and does not spoil the appearance of the car, this design increases convenience in tight parking, and the opening dimensions are 1005 x 530 mm. The Mitsubishi eK Wagon has been made safer by adopting a new shock absorbing steering column and a secure pedal assembly. The standard equipment includes two airbags (for the driver and front passenger), seat belts with restraints and pretensioners. An anti-lock braking system with a brake force distribution system and an emergency braking assistant was installed as an option in basic models or standard in more expensive ones. We can justifiably say that in the second generation eK Wagon is an improved copy of its predecessor with all its advantages: ease of operation, economy, convenience for shopping, ease of maintenance, good ground clearance. The disadvantages are also preserved - cramped rear, poor insulation, stiff short-stroke suspension, weak engine. But the manufacturer also produced a modification of eK Sport, which was distinguished by a sporty appearance, and a more powerful turbo engine served as an addition to the “aspirated”.
