Mitsubishi Motors has updated the Delica d:5 minivan for the domestic Japanese market. Recall that Delica of the current model is produced from 2018.
There are more features in the car configuration that increase the ease of operation. The Delica D: 5 is now equipped with an improved rain sensor, which has learned to better adjust the speed of the wipers to the intensity of precipitation, and heated steering wheel.
In addition, Mitsubishi Motors engineers have upgraded the automatic lighting control function: the headlights are now switched on slightly faster than before. Apparently, previously the owners of Delica D:5 complained about a delayed reaction.
There were no changes under the hood. The Delica D:5 is equipped with a 2.2-liter Mitsubishi 4n14 turbodiesel (145 HP and 380 Nm) and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The car uses the all Wheel Control (AWC) all-wheel drive system from Outlander.
Slightly updated minivan costs in Japan from 3,913,800 yen ($37,500) to 4,489,100 yen ($43,000).
In March 2020, sales of the Mitsubishi Delica D:5 in the new top version of the P Edition began in Japan. It provides a richer interior trim and the presence of additional active safety systems. A useful innovation from the point of view of convenience was an electrically operated side step that automatically slides out when the rear passenger door is opened and retracts when the door is closed. As a result, the leg has to be lifted not by 450 mm, but only by 220 mm.
