What is it?

It#96;s a four-door sedan that#96;s as much to drive as aToyota Cressida, Maxima or even a Lexus

Who makes it?

Mitsubishi, the folks make the Eclipse at Diamond-Star.

is one of the best kept secrets on the not surprisingbecause it started life as a Galant, the original best secret on the market.

Mitsubishi that if Honda could add Toyota Lexus andNissan it could have its own luxury called Sigma. So, allthe and whistles were added to the and Sigma was born asMitsubishi#96;s model.

Now that you know the be advised this is Sigma#96;s year on the market. Mitsubishi keep the name but that#96;s when an all-newtop-of-the-line luxury car in mid-1991 as a 1992.

The replacement is just being in Japan under the Diamantenameplate.

The Diamante, or whatever Mitsubishi it in the U.S. is larger than It#96;s built on a 107-inch and is 186.6 inches long,versus a wheelbase and 185.6-inch length on Diamante isroughly the size of a Accord or Ford Taurus.

The Diamante will feature a or 3-liter, 24-valve V-6 borderingon 200 A new luxury sports version of the will come outthis called VR-4, which the stage for Diamante by offering drive, four-wheel steering and antilock brakes.

We asked Mitsubishi the chances of up with a version of theDiamante the Chrysler name. Based on tirade against Japaneseimports, the of a Chrysler Diamante are remote, we told.

Back to the #96;90

It#96;s powered by a sprightly but 3-liter, 142-h.p. V-6 with automatic with overdrive rated at 18 miles per gallon m.p.g.highway.

The gear lever selector allows you to engage overdrive youwant optimum mileage on the highway. For optimum power, the button alone. The two times it down to a decision to hit the accelerator or the we hit the accelerator to avoid trouble and the V-6 the boostneeded without hesitation.

Had we to hit the brake, Sigma#96;s four-wheel system wouldassure fast, stopping regardless of road

The suspension system complements the performance and takes it astep Sigma features air-controlled with self-leveling andautomatic as well as anti-lift and an ti-dive to keep thevehicle on an even under hard acceleration or

In laymen#96;s terms, you float on a on the straightaways, but hangtough in the corners and without body swing or The power steering is as nimble as on a Honda Prelude, probably the for powersteering systems.

There#96;s of arm, head and leg room and rear, comfortableseats and a trunk seems to have been by a magician, considering all the stuff you can inside.

The only objection is a prop-held hood.
