1995 Mitsubishi Diamante Wagon Review

If the station wagon share of the U.S. new car market is small, then the space taken up in that segment by the luxury wagons is downright minuscule. At the present time, there are only a few players on this tiny field. Depending on your definition of the term luxury wagon, entries can be said to range from the Mercury Sable and Toyota Camry to the Volvo 960 and BMW 525i Touring, ending on the high side with the Mercedes 300TE.

Mitsubishi is something of an upstart among luxury wagon builders.

The company name is reasonably well-known, in large part because of a long-standing relationship with Chrysler. but few buyers are as yet aware that Mitsubishi offers a wagon version of its Diamante sedan.

In fact, the Diamante sedan is not exactly a high-profile vehicle, either in concept or in sales figures. That is not to say that it’s unattractive. In many respects, the big Mitsubishi 4-door is a class leader, scoring points for comfort, performance and manufacturing quality.

The simple fact of the matter is that word of the Diamante’s many virtues just hasn’t gotten out to the public yet.

What’s true for the Diamante sedan applies equally to the wagon. It is an extremely pleasant vehicle, competitive in just about every respect with its more familiar opponents such as the Camry and the Sable.

The fact that the Mitsubishi brand name may lack the panache of some ritzier badges shouldn’t deter potential buyers from checking out the features of this entry-level luxury wagon.

Mitsubishi designers have chosen to give the Diamante Wagon an understated, formal appearance that could be perceived as conservative. There are no visible concessions to aerodynamic efficiency here. From its upright front end to its sculpted sides to its traditional station wagon roof line, the big Diamante exudes class.

Few wagons, expensive or otherwise, match its subtle elegance.

Fit-and-finish details are strong Diamante selling points as well. Mitsubishi does not cut any corners on quality of materials or assembly. The Diamante is very well-built.

All four doors are large enough to offer easy access to the passenger compartment, and the rear hatch has a low liftover height, making loading of bulky items into the cargo space easy. A sturdy luggage roof rack is standard equipment.

This wagon borrows most of its hardware and trim from the basic Diamante ES sedan (now only available for fleet sales). Power is supplied by a V6 engine rated at 175 hp with a 4-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. Traction control is available in the LS sedan, but it’s not offered here.

Front suspension, steering and brakes are also the same as the ES sedan. Only the rear suspension was designed especially for the wagon: It is a beam-axle design to keep the load floor as low as possible.
